Cumbia para mi gente

We all know Rupture's Soot records have been hard on their cumbia game. Earlier this year they released El Hijo de la cumbia's record which was absolutly great was but sadly kind of slept on. Its my favourite cumbia album. Buy here.

Their resident cumbia expert Sonido Martines (above) of the infatigable La Congona fame follows it up with a weighty compilation of latin American heat. His cumbia driven travels led him from Lima to Buenos Aries to Bogota have enabled him to connect with some of the hottest artists to create this album. From Cumbia Villera to New school digital stuff, it's faultless 13 deep tracklist boasts of some of the biggest artists in Argentine cumbia from Damas Gratis to Chancha via Circuito.

Here is a a track from the record. Out to buy now.

Los Destellos - Elsa (Sondio Martines Remix ft Fefe)

New Yorkers catch Sonido Martines' US debut at the Natural History museum on November 13th. Then he'll be joining Rupture on tour in Europe this winter.
