Alexander Som x Les Castizos – ‘Maria Antonia’
This pumping ode to ‘Maria Antonia’ is readymade for the Balearics and then some, a spurt of electrified disco boogie with filtered loops landing an uppercut to the glitterball. Calvin Harris and David Guetta have been keeping an ear out for Madrid’s chief rocker Alexander Som, who in combination with Malaga’s party blasters Victor Roldan and Fali Sotomayor aka Les Castizos, dash out some frantic, gridlock-causing glamour. Non-stop horn keys disrupt any plans for a siesta, instead requesting you show some skin, get up and go insane.
