Ever since I watched Saving Mr. Banks, about the making of Mary Poppins, I’ve been waxing nostalgic for Disneyland. I find that Gastón Pacheco’s work is a bit like vintage Disney with even more quirk and imagination! Find more from Gastón on his website and from Mango Popsicle on Facebook.
So it’s not Friday night, but we’re going to pretend it is, because pretending Monday is Friday makes it a lot more fun. Thanks to producer Kaytranada (one of my favorites) and soul songstress Reva DeVito for this sultry little number, followed by a few of the former’s excellent collaborations and a fine remix of Miss Jackson.

MEXICO & SOUTH AFRICA: MUSIC: SALON ACAPULCO & DIE ANTWOORD
I witnessed Die Antwoord perform at The Purple Turtle on a stay in Cape Town, South Africa and their energy was infectious. This remix of “$copie” by Salon Acapulco, Guadalajara-based producer duo, does the former’s vibe justice while also adding a Latin tropical disco twist.
