Sydney-based dance duo and local legends, Bang Gang DJs, will be representing Australia at the very first BACARDÍ Triangle Festival, an epic music adventure taking place this Halloween. The festival will see guests from 22 cities around the world being whisked away to a private, Caribbean island, right in the heart of the Bermuda Triangle, for the massive three-day festival. Playing alongside the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Calvin Harris and Tensnake, both Gus Da Hoodrat and Jaime Doom are set for an overseas adventure in one of the most mystifying locations in the world. And you could be too.
BACARDÍ have announced that a total of twelve lucky fans from Australia have the chance to win an all expenses paid trip to this incredible event. Click here for a chance to win tickets and see below for the Bermuda Triangle-inspired playlist, hand-picked by Bang Gang DJs themselves.
William Onyeabar – Fantastic Man
I don’t know about you but when I’m on holiday I aim to be a fantastic man and this song and a Pina Colada pretty much gets me there. The David Byrne on Jimmy Fallon version of this is also quite amazing.
Circle Children – Zulu
Beach party bongo mayhem. Roll me in coconut oil and watch me go.
Ofo & The Black Company – Allah Wakbarr
A fuzzy Afro trip out meets morning prayer jam. Grab a shake and bliss the hell out of your tan.
Pachanga Boys – Time
A holiday is not complete without watching the sunrise. And this is the tune to accompany you on the task. In case the 15min version isn’t quite long enough, Hoodrat’s 26min edit will set you sail on your own special voyage.
Esso Trinidad Steel Band – I Want You Back
Steel Drums? Tick. Jackson Five song. Tick. The ultimate, Bermuda, end of the night jam. Double tick.
Paul McCartney – Check My Machine
White boy tropo-dub session. Where can’t you take a Beatle ?
Jay Deee – Crushin’
Dilla. Just because this is holiday hip-hop. And when in “the triangle” I would like to crush all night and at least half of the day.
Yello – Bananas To The Beat
Have to have at least one song with ‘Banana’ in the title when spending time in a semi-tropical climate. Keeps you in the zone.
Despicable Me 2 – Minions Banana Song
Actually, make that 2 ‘Banana’ songs.
Pepe Bradock – Intriguing Feathered Creature
This is the type of classic house I want to be doing some fucking ‘air-piano’.
