OK, enough blabla. I have not given enough space to good video so here it is: Born in Dub from Medellin offers us this “cumbia town”, mixing cumbia/reggae and images live. It’s very well done, and we can see typical scenes from the Medellin life and from the caribbean coast. Bravo !
1- Copia Doble systema – this is a big reggae cumbia hit from the Urbanworld records label based in Danemark. Strangely, it’s some kind of dark, I would even say depressing, not so happy jumppy reggae typical stuff ! It must be the bad weather of north Europe affecting our friends at that time.
2- Quantic – No soy del Valle (Nickodemus & Zeb REMIX): The voice of Nidia Gongora will sure be one of the next decades in Colombia and in the world music. With the Quantic, Nickodemus and ZEb work on the music, it’s a marvellous track. A must have.
There’s only 30 second guiro on this track, which dos not make a cumbia, but I couldn’t resist to share you this Quantic / Erykah Badu nice mashup which has the same vibe.
3 – Dj Quilombo – rockers 11: This collective from brussels is well known in Generation Bass for its excellent mashups. FREE DOWNLOAD !
