‘We No Speak Americano’ may be so 2010, but there’s no denying the fact that the infectious electro swing hit was a revelation on dance floors across the world that year. Yolanda Be Cool’s bouncy summer track with that repetitive chorus has also appeared on a host of TV shows, movies and video games, including an enjoyable round on ‘Tap Tap Revenge’. After last year’s appearance at the H-Artistry party, DJs Johnson Peterson and Slyvester Martinez return to our shores to showcase their brand of house, afrohouse and electronic on the decks of Zouk, supported by local DJs Terence C, Goldfish and Blink.
Last year’s successful collaboration with Crystal Waters on ‘Le Bump’ proved that the Sydney duo are no one hit wonder, and with more than a decade of turntable experience under their belts, they also boast a solid reputation for quality production skills and creative sampling. Besides, who else could’ve unearthed a global mega dance hit from snippets of a ’50s Italian tune? Whether you’re a fan of ‘We No Speak Americano’ or just an EDM purist, the boys from Down Under will set the club on fire, one beat at a time. Wong Boon Ken
