'Khev de Leon’s Transnational Music 2.0 Productions remind us that Moombahton forms part of the Global Bass scene – and that Moombahton is about waaaaay more than a dirty Dutch plus dembow template. Heady.' Neil Queen-Jones for walmerconvenience.wordpress.com
'The 13th Tribë... expertly pulls of the global moombahton sound. His tracks have tons of tropical influence, and neither vocals nor melodies sound like a second-thought addition to his tracks- no house-esque random lyrics here.... When Heartbreak was talking about good moombahsoul that’s meant for the home, not the club, he had tracks like these in mind. Check this guy out on SoundCloud, I really can’t recommend him enough.¨ Ziad Ramley (110bpm.wordpress.com)
"The 13th Tribe and their new single Negro are about as inspired as it gets. Negro is a tidal wave of musical and cultural influences, as they draw from their collective backgrounds, taking you from Africa to the UK to South America, to create one lethal cocktail." review by Hazard @PlanetUrban.com/au
"I watched the video a few times, Amazing arrangement, very eclectic. You can definitely tell your influences range from reggae/rock/dancehall/hip-hop. I’d love to hear more anytime :), Your releases would be well-received by our eclectic audience.' --Wax Poetics Magazine Brooklyn described as “The best and most exquisitely laid-out music bimonthly in America.” by The New York Times Style Magazine
" ...Thanks a million to Suchil K Dade (future Pilot AKA) for pointing me in the direction of The 13th Tribe,a marker of how vibrantly diverse the music world is here in Scotland I just loved that."

"I really like that Video (of Negro) That was DOPE!"
"Negro is great - really infectious. The video reminds me of the early days of the Hac groovin with The Jazz Defektors when the Hac screens showed vids like that with b+w movie clips-
Geoff Ellis (Founder Of T In The Park,DF Concerts)
"I love Negro and think it's a HIT, that youtube clip with the film you've used is a def winner. The whole vibe reminds me a lot of Belleville Rendez-vous - very cool style." -
