Well I am back in Toulouse after a lot of gigs in Barcelona, Lyon and Montpellier and it’s good to chill home. I went to the guitar store and got my electric guitar back after trying, in vain to get some euros from her during 9 years. Not even one peso ! So you’ll understand I feel like having a shift in the trend and present you some cumbias with pop rock. Here’s for today:
1. Freakcastro is the typical soundclouder mashuper that have no-bio at all, no EPK and you know we love them at GB. He has this nice cumbiaton with Offspring what wil remind you the nineties.
2. The Anchor Babies: Wherever they see borders, they smash them like twigs. With this one they use cumbia.
3. Gnotes is a multi-instrumentalist rapper and producer from Seattle. He has produced two instrumental hip-hop records [Granada Doaba and Inthrumental] and is currently recording his sophomore rap album Conflict and Interest featuring Devin the Dude, Blockhead, Illmind and Metaform. His album Rhymes and Beats is available at iTunes CDBaby or Amazon. He belongs to the Gnawledge crew which sent me this nice edit of “Mi Morena Rebelde” by Eusebio Y Su Banjo.. The Chicha with the crazy electric guitar always have something very rock. I love it.
4. Naku, another voluntary unknown mashes up the inexpectable: typical tropical clarinet with reggaeton and rock indie classic anthem of the Yeah yeah yeah.
5. Bombombum is fan of colombian music – especially of cumbia …with her roots and futuristic blooms. This mixtape is based on classics and you know it’s necessary to listen to the classics to keep humble, and keep on improving the use of the blessed and overused sample packs. As one GB reader would write without any sense of sympathy nor cleverness last week, it’s not because you put a guiro or a guacharaca that you have a cumbia nor a nice edit. Cumbia is far more than that. Let’s listen to the Bombombum good classic selection which will make everyone agree !
