MEXICAN INSTITUTE OF SOUND
Why break a tradition….and it’s becoming a tradition to have Mexican Institute of Sound on here every Saturday around about Cumbia Time.
Hey just like the Fonzi said, it’s COOL!
For the fourth consecutive week running, M.I.S. set a new Generation Bass record for the most consecutive number of posts on Sexxy Saturday Cumbia!
Created what he calls “QUMBIA”!
Here’s what Touski says about this new QUMBIA track!
So I did commit another Qumbia. This time it’s a remix of “Les Filles de Repentigny / La Luette en Colère“, by a well-known trad band called Les Charbonniers De l’Enfer (approx: Coalmens from Hell), an excellent a capella band who are already interpreting ancient songs in a modern way using only voices and feet stomps. I provided the lyrics and an approximate translation in english for my fellows that don’t have the great chance of understanding Québécois.
Since now there is not only one track of Qumbia so I guess we can consider it a real musical genre by itself. On top of it, I am now not the only producer mixing Cumbia beats with music from Québec.
Since now there is not only one track of Qumbia so I guess we can consider it a real musical genre by itself. On top of it, I am now not the only producer mixing Cumbia beats with music from Québec. There is a guy in Sherbrooke who made a cumbia-inspired track with Dehors Novembre, one of my favourite track from Les Colocs. It’s not exactly what I would call a party track since lyrics are about the last hours of a musician dying from AIDS but still, we can hear some güira.
His new album is out today and you can stream/download it all here:
This is what he says about it all:
After five years of running the streets of Texas, this talented dj/producer is set to release his tropical debut album.
The album, ‘Carajo Colombia’, a cornucopia of sounds, consists of thirteen tracks that are remixes, edits, originals and bsides that focus on the music that Orion was raised on. The album focuses most notably on Cumbia and it is presented in a more club fashion, remixing funk, hip-hop and Baltimore Club music intermittently to produce a high-energy coagulation of musical magic. Orion has always been keen to bring something unique to a traditional sound.
Dj Orion is the founder of Peligrosa and owner of Raw Word Records which has led him to circle the globe. He has toured the US and Europe while performing along side nationally known acts such as MSTRKRFT, Rebirth Brass Band, Klever, Bajofondo, Does It Offend You, Yeah?!, Pigeon John, Toy Selecta, Yarah Bravo, Mixhell, Steedlord, Dan Deacon, 2 Live Crew, Ozomatli, Zizek and was a member of the ever popular Yo Majesty taking the stage at Coachella in 2008. Despite holding down three weeklies in Austin, Orion finds time to produce records for artists he truly believes in, designs and illustrates and promotes unique music and art events. Other notable accomplishments are performing at Austin’s Fun Fun Fun Fest and named as best dj in Austin by the Austin Chronicle.
His musical influences start in Colombia where his father was born and Puerto Rico, the birthplace of his mother, and meet somewhere between Germany where he grew up and Texas where he lives today. ‘Carajo Colombia’ is an elaborate metaphor of his upbringing.
This album debuts at Santos Party House in New York City (FLYER) as Dj Orion performs with Uproot Andy (Que Bajo, Bersa Discos, ZZK) February 25th. It will be featured at one of many Peligrosa performances during SXSW 2010 and a tour featuring Peligrosa All Stars is in the works for the Summer of 2010.
Through Juan Data, I worked with this guy on my Electro-Tango Projects a few years back and he made a bunch of great tracks in various guises. He also worked as Koxmoz with Gotan Project on my all-time favourite track by them, “Mi Confession”.
I’m so happy to hear him start making Cumbia beats, no doubt, Juan probably had something to do with that..lol…
