The Cataracs – Gordo Taqueria (EP)
Although they’ve been busy producing and jumping in on other artists’ tracks, it’s been a while since we’ve gotten an EP from Pop/hip-hop/electronic duo The Cataracs. Now, three years after releasing Songs We Sung In Showers , they’ve dropped their newest EP: Gordo Taqueria.
The album’s name pays homage to their favorite Bay Area taqueria, probably to prove that they haven’t lost their heads in L.A…yet…These guys are really sticking to their guns on this one, noting that they are more about parodying the club scene rather than banking on it. And after taking a listen to the 8-track, EDM-hip-hop fusion of sound, I would say that they follow-through on that.
“Roll the Dice” is especially good, probably because they produced it in tandem with Stargate (Wiz Khalifa, Katy Perry) and Wolfgang Gartner. “All You” is another gem featuring Waka Flocka Flame and Kaskade–and if you haven’t seen the music video yet, watch it here.
