With the helping hand of painkillers I am here able to write this week’s Sexxy Saturday Cumbia on time. Though I’m still looking forward to the part where the pain isn’t so bad anymore and I can enjoy the effects of the Percocet. I figure one more day perhaps.
As for right now however the pain is minimal enough to allow me to focus on publishing this post on time. So without further ado let us begin.
This was a pretty dope find. It’s always nice to have some Pa Kongal tracks on here. This is his latest edit he published on Official FM. Classic dope Pa Kongal work if I say so.
Bay Area badass Turbo Sonidero Futuristico has been busy producing some exciting new tracks. On Wednesday the 7th of May Tumbias Electronicos will come out on Caballito. Here is a lovely taste of what’s to come on the album.
I just recently heard this remix by Turbo Sonidero Futuristico too. This is a really pleasant gem that shows his diversity.
Tu Guaina is a true experimenter of sounds and illustration. The Argentine maestro has been keeping me busy this past year or so keeping up with him. Here is his latest masterpiece.
One of the raunchiest, nastiest cumbias to come out surely has to be this edit of “My Neck My Back” by 42o Selektah.
Earlier last week I wrote a little piece about this band on NCE called Atlantic Soul Machine. These guys are funky as can be with their awesome fusion of Colombian tropical sounds with hip hop and other urban vibes.
The first few latin – tropical bass remixes of the new Daft Punk hit “Get Lucky” have surfaced on the web. The first and excellent cumbia one I encountered was from the always-forward thinking Yelram Selectah.
We have a new Sonidos Profundos track come to us by way of 305 Recordings. It is different than what I usually here from Sonidos Profundos, not that it’s bad, it is still quite good, just a lot different. What do you think?
Finishing this short post up, we now go to a really dope cumbia dub remix very creatively produced by El Mulato. This is lovely.
Shorter than usual perhaps this week but the selection here is really good I believe. I am just happy I can come through for all of you, my dear friends.
Here’s to no more pain!
