1. Gasolina (Onda Latina Summer 2010, 2010)

“This song is legendary, one of the biggest party floor anthems ever. The infectious chorus along with the bridge, the upcoming drums and the subtle Arabic details in the instrumentation (already a classic feature in old school Luny Tunes produced Reggaeton) made for such an anticipated reaction of blasting energy for the grinding sessions in the club.”
