As Pete Isaac from Jelly Jazz said, Makala does tasty club rocking tunes that fuse old school rumba, salsa, reggae, swing and mambo with breakbeats and chugging 4 to tha floor beats. Remix action here from our friends and heroes Dusty and Dubben. Both delivering amazing takes on the originals.
Watch out for Makala’s new album, coming soon!!
Makala, or Mikel Unzurrungaza Schmitz as his mother calls him, surfer dude, music freak and all round good guy, hails from the picturesque Basque town of Zarautz. Having entered the music scene in the nineties as part of the Novophonic posse (with Javi P3z and Txarly Brown), he quickly established himself as a versatile musician, producer, DJ and remixer – playing all over Spain and Europe with Javi P3z Orchestra, Makala Banda, Makala Sound System or Funkel Sound System. Apart from that, he hosts his own radio programme Boom Shaka Laka on the Basque station E-Gaztea (EITB).
