More Than Cumbia

30/06/17Cut Chemist Puts Together A Free-Download Compilation Of Colombian Treasures

We love finding amazing music from around the globe, especially when you have an acclaimed record digger such as the notorious Cut Chemist take a trip down South to unearth the rich musical spirit of Colombia and put together a selection of songs for the 'greedy' ones among us. That being said, we were more than ready to feast our ears on these vibrant tropical remixes and would love for you to do the same. But before we share that link, here's a short comment on the artists to be found on this release:

"Our trip begins with folklore Colombiano favorites Los Corraleros de Majagual over a crunchy boom-bap by Co. Fee from Los Angeles’ beat collective, My Hollow Drum. Dance Kill Move (Stockholm, Sweden) adds some serious low end to Los Jovenes de Hierro’s classic charanga, 'Ritmo Sabroso.' Ubiquity recording artist, currently residing in Colombia, Bosq and Yukicito of La Junta (Los Angeles) contribute absolute party starters, while El Dusty’s 'Mi Chola' give Los Teen Agers a taste of Corpus Christi, TX. Atropolis (Queens) pays homage with a heavy stripped down edit of Julio y su Combo’s 'Lamento Cumbiambero' and Los Chicos Altos (Barcelona) add in some rub-a-dub flavor on Los Hermanos Tuiran’s 'Lluvia.' In addition we explore national treasures and the lesser known, new styles of chirimía, porro, pachanga, salsa and cumbia as interpreted by Sumohair (Los Angeles), Gabe Real (Pomona CA) and Greece duo SUPERSAN (aka Panama Cardoon & Mister Kentro)."
