Calor de Cumbia
Always a good day when the cumbias are flow into the inbox courtesy of the good people at Bersa Discos. Their second cumbia battle weapon comes to you direct from Buenos Aries via Bay Area.
Bersa Discos #2 brings yet more heavily innovative cumbia gone trance/bass/crunk/something else amazing.
Argentina's DJ Negro ways in with this hammer featuring Tego & B-Real.
DJ Negro - Mundo Querido
and the ever excellent cumbionic talents of label co-boss, Oro 11 with Lemonade.
Oro 11 - Pibes Walk It Out
Limited edition vinyl available at Turntable lab
If you are in the San Francisco area, go to the release party with a first ever SF appearance by South Rakkas Crew. That line up alone makes me want to leave the UK joining Brian McBride (you served us proudly) and leave these shores for a new US home.
