Negro Dub – 10 Years of Electrocumbia

Negro Dub – 10 Years of Electrocumbia

What always stroke me is the trance like character that cumbia music can have. Music that seems to be made for what seems to be a folky festive party only, but which has this deep sense of making you go in a trance in a slow mood. Check for example the second tune on this great compilation of remixes by Negro Dub. Negro Dub and cumbia go hand in hand. Negro Dub eats, sleeps and drinks cumbia, all day and all night long.

Julito Balacera meets Andrés Digital

Julito Balacera meets Andrés Digital

Enjoy this EP full of Caribean latino style tunes plus reworks! Get it here for free

Motin – Fauna EP

Motin – Fauna EP

In case you missed out on Motin from Dresden (DE), have a listen. He’s blending top notch production with traditional styles. He does this it in such a way that I do not recall wether the song is based on a total modern style such as trap or the traditional south or middle amercan style.. And the songs make their own merits, their both fresh and rooted. Check out Black Woods, just lovely. Enjoy!
