With over a decade of experience lighting up dance floors, Portland Oregon based DJ and producer TAKIMBA draws from a unique heritage blending genres and international styles together in a sophisticated fashion. Case in point is his new track Robo Suavé which he just released on this fine day. It’s a collaborative effort between him and fellow beat smith Solovox that crosses worldly rhythms and instrumental vibrations with refined digital production methods. Organ like keys (by Solovox), funky guitar riffs, and a galloping bass line that at one point breaks down into ‘Another One Bites The Dust’; Robo Suavé sounds as much like a full live band as it does two thrifty producers.

Keep an eye out for a free download link for this groovy knee bender of a tune coming soon. In the mean time, if you’re in the Portland area you can catch Solovox and TAKIMBA live tomorrow April 28th at Sprung! A Springtime Dance Party with Solovox Takimba Cockstorm. I would expect the Robo Suavé to be straight bumpin’!


If you go to What the Festival this year be sure to catch TAKIMBA doing his thing there!
