Music should make you feel good, and that’s exactly what you get with “Oye Party,” the latest release from the talented producer, Rod Carrillo and new artist “Bodega Charlie.” If you’re into categories, it’s a Latin house anthem, but party really is the operative term here. Play loud and enjoy, because “Oye Party” bumps hard and has a nice hook–“Can I buy a drink?” Carrillo’s camp serves up a heaping helping of superbly-crafted sonic undulations. And from a DJ’s vantage point, “Oye Party” is a simply a fun record to work–as in double copies!
All of the four mixes are excellent, but from a Chi-Town perspective, it’s especially gratifying to see our hometown legend Tim “Spinnin” Schommer in top form. We look forward to catching up with Tim to discuss the production techniques he used to create his most-excellent remix.
Look for more info on this exciting project, but for now, here’s the press release…

ROD CARRILLO PRESENTS BODEGA CHARLIE LATIN HOUSE ANTHEM, “OYE PARTY”, RELEASE
Rod Carrillo – the electrifying producer that exploded on international dance floors this year – is at it again. He is a vibrant producer/remixer that has had a year full of hits for such artists as Donna Summer, Hardrox, Crystal Waters and Judy Torres. “Oye Party” is Rod Carrillo’s new Latin House Anthem along with new artist ‘Bodega Charlie.”
Carrillo believes the song’s purpose is to bring back a lifting Latin feel party anthem. “’Oye Party” is a feel good party record for all walks of life, from the new to the old school,” explained Rod Carrillo from his studio in Phoenix, AZ. “When Luis Torres (DBL) and I wrote the record, we wanted to bring a funny but grooving party house record. With our diverse culture we thought a Spanglish record would be ideal and create a party feeling both for the mainstream and underground scenes during these unsettling economic times.’”
“Oye Party” includes mixes from Legendary Chicago DJ Tim “Spinnin” Schommer. “ Tim adds the old school Chicago sound with a new twist, “ Carrillo said. Also included in the package are mixes by DJ Sted-E, of the famed trio Speakerbox, Mula, and newcomer J Paul. “Sted-E and the Speakerbox guys are on top of their game…. Sted-E banged out a mix for the underground culture while Mula gave the track a true Salsa feel. J Paul is a talented up and coming producer that rounded out the Electroclash sound in a very different and unique way,” Carrillo concluded.
