Steve Angello looks to offer his Size sister label, X, its sophomore release with a brand new collaborative effort between Sunnery James, Ryan Marciano, and Chocolate Puma. Following the inaugural Nice & Close EP from Trent Cantrelle, the threesome bring X another beat-driven, tech-laden dance floor killer. Titled “Stiffness,” the track is anything but stiff, instilling instant movement in all limbs with a sexy drum styling that crosses after hours appeal with jungle energy.
With releases on 50-odd labels under their belts, Chocolate Puma’s Zki and Dobre made their debut on Mixmash Records this week, pouncing on a a party hit with “2000 People.” The Dutch duo took to the horns section for the tune, creating a bouncy and brassy house sound with pumped up reggae vocals and an electro-fied drop. A fitting groove for the Mixmash roster, “2000 People” marks the scene veterans’ 200th-something success.
Chocolate Puma take on Orlando Voorn’s “In Da Jungle” and retrofit the 1996 house classic with a unique tech house spin off. In maintaining the track’s tribal roots, the duo’s remix showcases an eerie robotic effect over the reggae vocal alongside a hypnotic concoction of kicks and snares. The track’s build is slow and drawn out, featuring a well-thought symphony of innovative noises — a quality reconstruction of a true classic.

Chocolate Puma have released a very long snippet of their upcoming single, “Ay Mama Mia.” We’ve expressed our feelings for the long standing duo in previous posts and those feelings still stand true. As the title implies “Ay Mama Mia” is Latin influenced and features a hip-shaking drop. “Ay Mama Mia” in its original form will be official theme song for the upcoming Sons of Buena Vista Social club film. Chocolate Puma’s version is set for release on January 15th alongside a Chocolate Puma dub remix and remixes from David Aude, Sick Individuals, and Robbie Rivera.Posted by
Before the Bingo Players put themselves on the map with “Cry, Just A Little,” they were producing quality beats — many of which have been entirely overlooked. Their collaboration with Chocolate Puma is one such track and so we’d like to revive it for all of you haven’t heard it and even those of you have. With its heavy bass and vintage vocals “Disco Electrique” is an absolute floor killer of epic proportions. Their track “L’Amour” may have just taken the number 40 spot on our Biggest Tracks of 2012 list, but I’m partial to “Disco Electrique.”
Chocolate Puma have been around the block and then some but the duo don’t receive nearly enough credit. This year alone they’re released two bombs — “Gimme Sum” and “Just One More Time Baby” — and their old collaboration with the Bingo Players (“Disco Electrique”) is one of my favorite songs of all time. Chocolate Puma is back with another major tune, this time a hardcore bootleg of “Playing With Knives.” The build is funky, the bassline is groovy, and the drop is absolutely filthy. Although they produced the track four years ago, they’re just now releasing it to the public. All you have to do to redeem your copy is head here and tweet the track.
Dutch tribal house duo Chocolate Puma team up with fellow countryman Gregor Salto on a bumping track that takes its cues from seminal 80s Chicago label Dance Mania. “Gimme Sum” employs a more measured approach than Puma’s usual percussive fare, only periodically punctuating the rib-rattling funk bass line that dominates the track. The track succeeds as a modern reinterpretation of a once hot sound; the tactical use of big room synths fit the song while reminding the listener that the year is 2012, not 1986. Head to Beatport to catch the release on Pssst Records.

Whenever we see Chocolate Puma’s name attached to a track we’re immediately drawn to it — and for good reason. The Dutch house duo are veterans in the dance music world and consistently bring quality music to the proverbial table — “Gimme Sum” is just another notch on their belt. The track employs a variety of thumping bass kicks and funky percussions that would shake up any dance floor. This isn’t their first collaboration with Gregor Salto and we don’t anticipate it will be their last.

Chocolate Puma are house veterans and have been producing for over a decade. If you’re not familiar with their musical stylings we suggest you get familiar because their productions are generally above average — especially in the currently over saturated market. The duo recently collaborated with Firebeatz for “Just One More Time Baby,” and now they’re back with their own track, “GoGo Boots.” The acid house tune boasts a repetitive bass synth sound and a sprinkling of self-described weird noises. Everything about this tune is hard and it puts us in an Ibiza state of mind.
