Chancha Via Circuito Mixtape



Leave it up to dem good folk at ZZK in Buenos Aries to keep pumping out their consistently excellent new school digital cumbia folktonica. Chancha has got to be one of my favourites of that scene. His beats are always swirling with echoes of traditional South American percussion chopped up with the sweet shuffle of cumbia melodies. His new album, Rio Arriba, is dropping soon on ZZK but check out this brand new mix he did for the dudes over at XLR8R featuring some exclusive new cuts from the album.

Obviously it's hardly easy running a label like ZZK out of Argentina so they have wisely teamed up with Kickstarter, a cool new fund raising project to help them make a tour video. Check out all the info here.
