Episode 91 of the Gangstercast series is brought to us by Ralo & Strada aka Raul Peña and Felix Estrella, who are two incredible producers originating from the world of Hip Hop and now making House – one living in Miami and the other in Atlanta. Being an audio engineer for big Hip-Hop names in the early 90’s Ralo eventually got tired and felt like it was time to flip the script and speed up the tempo creating fresh house grooves. His productions have been played by Jesse Perez during BPM 2014 and the release of his EP on Sishi Rosch & Diego Moreno’s imprint Digital Delight in 2016.
Strada was born in the south of Lima Peru, he then made his way to the U.S. as a young boy. Constantly in the studio, working diligently and searching each day for new sounds, he fell in love with the raw, filthy, nasty, funky and groovy beats of house music. It was in 2014 when they crossed paths, fellow producers who shared the same passion. They teamed up for an EP on Miami’s own Mr. Nice Guy Records in late 2015 and recently released on IAHG in 2016, and there’s plenty more to come for this dream team!

When we sat down with the guys, we asked how this mix represent them as artists, to which Ralo said “It represents the sound we love to create and share with everyone at our shows.”
Strada went on to explain how they choose the tracks for this mix, “We hand-selected these tracks by reaching out to fellow producers for their unreleased music and chose a few tracks that hold a special place in our hearts. We are very eager to share them with all you gangsters… The special thing about this mix is that we get to express our sound, our hard work and dedication that we have been striving for since we started working together two years ago.”
