Another week's coming to an end and what better way to blast your weekend than with a serving of smooth and funky tribal house with a touch of latin groove.
As the fourth installment from my Housed Up Series ("A Taste Of Hed Kandi - Let There Be House", "Chillout Weekend - A Journey Into Soulful Jazzy House", and The 80s Remixed, Remashed and Rehashed - Some Electro House For You"), here's another form of house, which is more drum-focused and without a core melody. It also relies on sophisticated drum patterns for the rhythm and consists of various drums sounds.
Tribal house is a fusion of various styles and may be considered as an extension of funky house, usually uplifting and cheerful, and can definitely progress to Latin House, which is what this set is all about.
Most notable DJs for this sub-genre of house include Eric Morillo (considered the Godfather Of House), Masters At Work (Kenny "Dope" Gonzales and Little Louie Vega), Bob Sinclar, and some stuff from Groove Armada.
