Sexxy Saturday Cumbia : Bass Hector

keep-calm-and-listen-cumbia-7

The time : 1982

The place : the Sol Y Sombra…a heaving sweaty basement Colombian nightclub in London’s busy West End

The DJ : Hector Heathcote

When those original classic Discos Fuentes Cumbia rhythms first cursed through my veins I could never have dreamed of the massive influence Cumbia rhythms would have on the world of dance music and in particular club music. In my fortnightly column I will highlight some of the best and show the diversity and innovative energy of this truly global brand. Big respect to UMB  and all Generation Bass fam.

First up is a remix of an @cocotaxi tune from Copenhagen Cumbia crew Copia Doble Systema. Cool marimba vibes..

I really like  what the Pa Changas Collective do and this Agustin Sound System joint with its bubbling acidic groove is no exception.

…and talking  of Agustin Sound System it would be rude not to mention this  mixtape…the lastest episode in the excellent Yo me llamo cumbia series…

Big thanks to Victor for this…an essential Atropolis remix of Ondatropica’s “El Caiman Gallinazo”. Accordions!

Fans of this page will be familiar with the Peronists quirky, playful take on the Cumbia vibe and as these two offerings will show, they still got game (no puNintended!)

and

From a U.K. perspective Cumbia’s fate has always been in the hands of a few diehard cumbianistas and no-one epitomises this more than Russ Jones as his weekly jam on Solar Radio and his regular London gigs will testify. Big respect Russ!  Check him out HERE.  Here’s a mashup I did of one of Russ’s big tunes..


los chicharrons – ma do nar (captain planet… by soulanddance

Last but by no means least a prolific and innovative producer from Mexico. Yelram Selectah’s latest guitar boogie Cumbia joint kills it! a chicha-tastic Los Mirlos-sampling delight.

More soon amigos.

Sexxy Saturday Cumbia – Generation Bass Cumbia EP’s and More

ssc11

Art by 420 Designs

I have a couple morning announcements to make before getting into the music. And then perhaps roll call. Or maybe I should start with that first. Is everyone here? Good. Okay starting off here at Generation Bass we have been releasing free EP’s in the genres of dubstep, moombahton and even zouk bass among others too from time to time. We are starting to release cumbia EP’s and do you know who is in charge? Nope. Me, that’s right I am. So send me your requests and don’t waste your time with Dee Jay Umb, he is very busy with many other things. If it’s cumbia it goes to me and I’ll happily talk with you and discuss a possible EP release here.

Second up is a shameless plug. The reason I have no shame is because I work too hard and don’t have the time to feel shameful. And because I work hard all week listening to music every day, hardly having any time for my own projects, I am always speaking with artists, writing reviews, press releases, one sheets, producing album projects; producing, performing and mixing my own show The Global Bass Experience; writing and collecting cumbia tracks all week for this weekly post and holding down my actual job (I mean actual because it is the job that pays my bills and puts food in my stomach). So shame is the one thing I don’t have time for. I’m over-loaded. So I shamelessly wish to plug my hard work, I sincerely do not apologize if this offends you.

The Global Bass Experience is the show I wish to take a moment to plug here. I work on it all week and really would love to see it grow. I’m such a workhorse that I won’t ever stop producing it, until I feel of course like there is nothing more I wish to do with it, but that day doesn’t seem like it ever will arrive in an average healthy person’s lifetime. Please check it out and show me some love and support. I make no money from it but spend plenty on it. This past episode I covered zouk and zouk bass in a special mix along with some really dope cumbia, 3ball and moombah. I hope you like it, and if you do please please please share it with your friends. Also don’t be shy, please comment and share your opinions with me.

The Global Bass Experience Episode 5 04.12.2013 by The Global Bass Experience on Mixcloud

Camanchaca shows some love and support to Copia Doble Systema with his remix of “Doble Troble.” Also along with the chill remix track is a video with scenes from “Night of the Living Dead.” It’s a must see if you like cannibalism and cumbia together.

Copia Doble Systema ft. Catar Sys – Doble Troble (Camanchaca Remix) from foxmono on Vimeo.

Speaking of Copia Doble Systema, they are getting ready to tour this year and are looking for dates. Here is a promo video you most likely will like, especially if you are into bright clothing. Now under Post World Industries, please contact PWI for booking information at [email protected]

Café De Calaveras returns to SSC with his new project through Folcore. It is a reggae-cumbia EP. This track features Bob Marley and Chuck D on the track “Survival” remixed by Café De Calaveras. For a free download of the whole EP, visit Folcore.

It has been a while since I have had Chong X around here on SSC. He’s back with a sick mystical remix of Stas’ “Spirits.”

A mixtape comes our way by way of Sonidos Profundos, one of my all time favorite nu cumbieros. Sonidos Profundos never fails to please, even when it’s a mix. This is an eclectic cumbia mix perfect for background or foreground listening.

Sonidos Profundos [email protected]_Negro_Records by Techvibes on Mixcloud

One dude that gets in the brain with his cumbia is FeroZMonas. His herb-friendly music makes the perfect soundtrack for a relaxing sit down. I wonder what his plans are for 420 this year. Silly (lame) talk aside, FeroZMonas really produces some innovative digital cumbia that is a pleasure to listen to.

Take your time with the herb; I’m not done yet. Play this new track right after the last one. El Mulato is another innovative cumbiero that deserves much respect.

DJ Linterna of Dos Mundos Radio has been quiet when it comes to producing lately. So needless to say, it brings me much pleasure when he produces and shares something new. This is the case with his new track “Lunes off.” I even featured this track as the last song on my The Global Bass Experience Episode 5 mix.
It is a beautiful production that brings lovely visuals to mind. I am positive you will enjoy this.

Snow Balderas is one of the heads behind the Soberbio Musica collective. He knows his stuff and it really shows with this edit of “Son Calenda.”

El Mencho Cumbia Dub started sharing tracks on the Nu Cumbia Experience Facebook group. I’m glad they did because these are some really deep cumbia tracks that I found myself enjoying greatly.

There is not much I can say after all I’ve already said about Yelram Selectah, he just keeps producing awesome tracks for playing out in a mix live. He is definitely one of my “go to “ producers when it comes to selecting tracks to play in a live mix.

Dany F is our deep cumbia boy, when we’re looking for it. When we want more he is a good producer for champeta and other afro-Colombian productions. This deepness is his specialty, his trademark if you will.

For another producer that loves to take cumbia to new innovative depths you should strongly consider checking out the work of AsagiSaundo. He is the master of the sci fi cumbia and he’s back!

This last track is from a duo called Cumbia Machin that I had just very recently wrote a feature on – on Nu Cumbia Experience dot com. There I go into a lot more detail and also share their whole album “Esuper Cumbia” that this song is on. Just click on this link to listen to and read more.

Another busy and productive week has come to an end with the promise of many more in sight. The new EP releases from Generation Bass produced and managed by me will be intense, so keep an eye and an ear, or better yet, both of your eyes and both of your ears, even both of your nostrils out for the EP releases coming soon.

Peace

THE CLERK – TOP CAT E.P Bangers Advisory

artworks-000040625918-os2dez-t500x500

Yo!

Back to the blog! After I moved to Copenhagen, my new city and Post World Industries’ second base, I’m back at work.

In the middle of moving, due to random coincidences, Skype fun and Copyflex’ on point suggestion, I met Andrea Rotilio (The Clerk). His productions blew all the Post World Industries crew’s minds, every tune that he played to us it was a banger, while he was telling us “I never thought people would like my productions.”

I think The Clerk produces as much music as he can, while not being a clerk in a bank in Pavia, outside Milano. In his own words:

I’M WORKING IN A BANK ALL DAY LONG. WHEN I GO HOME I MAKE MUSIC. I HAVE NO DJ BACKGROUND AND I’M STILL PLAYING BASS IN A STONER BAND. I LIKE DANCEHALL RIDDIM, FAT BASS & HIP HOP BEATS. MY SHOW IS A LIVE SET. NASTY TUNES, TROPICAL BASS & WARM RHYTHMS ARE MY STATEMENT. MY NAME IS THE CLERK, WHO’S NOT LOOKING WON’T BELIEVE IT.

Now 100% Presi Bene, YoFok and Post World Industries joined forces to release the debut E.P of The Clerk, for free.

Here all the info about the release:

The Clerk, Andrea Rotilio, born in 1988 in Pavia, is the latest successful addition to 100% PRESI BENE (an italian collective) & Post World Industries. He doesnt stop working and produces one bomb after another. After giving us a taste of his unique and special style, a kind of global bass, colorful and rich in nuances, ranging from ethnic african percussion, with hypnotic rhythms and energetic dancehall, we are finally here to present his first official release: Top Cat EP !

The EP is a complete sound package with three remixes: the first is the work of Ckrono & Slesh, a celebrated duo from Florence already known for their explosive remix of Milangeles “Blue Sky”, a remix by Voodoo Rebel from Numa Crew and the last is a spicy cumbia bass remix from the head of the YoFok team in Copenhagen, Norwegian producer Copyflex a.k.a Copia Doble Systema.

Get ready for more bangers soon !

A bit of India

Fort-bench

 

A bit of India… I won’t be bragging about my origins ; Indians are clever people and they don’t get tricked by my features, when i go there they know i’m a f***in’ tourist and that’s ok for me – i’m not asking people to greet me arms open just because we originally come from the same place. I’m not gonna play that game of rediscovering my roots and being proud of a country i barely know. However i am proud to share all the energy Indian artists have managed to bring on the international scene ; how Indian music influenced western music producers and how the latter are able to blend it nicely to their own musical background.

 

Captain Planet is certainly one of my fav artists. In a previous post i said that the man had a style, his own style. The way he composes, makes you easily forget that it’s electronic music, you really feel in a concert hall bouncing to a live performance. Unplug your mind for a few minutes and enjoy the trip !

Copyflex from Copia Doble Systema teamed with Ben Horn and Papon to produce a real beautiful masala track, full of colours and light for Indian movie Patang (the kite).
Under the Bolly flavour we do recognize the distinctive stabs, the dubby style that marks the tracks of Copia Doble Systema.

http://www.patang.tv/
A poetic journey to the old city of Ahmedabad, PATANG weaves together the stories of six people transformed by the energy of India’s largest kite festival. Every year a million kites fill the skies above Ahmedabad–dueling, soaring, tumbling and flying high. When a successful Delhi businessman takes his daughter on a surprise trip back to his childhood home for the festival, an entire family has to confront its own fractured past and fragile dreams. Music and fireworks, food and laughter, a kaleidoscope of color and light, the magic of the kite flying high – a traditional recipe of healing and renewal. With naturalistic performances from actors and non-actors alike, bold, lyrical editing, vibrant cinematography and a kinetic score, Patang delights the senses and nourishes the spirit.

Vinayak^A விநாயகா
Talking about the work of Vinayak^A and the artist himself is quite a long story and i think he deserves a long post just for himself ; but for the moment, let’s enjoy listening to these beautiful colorful tracks. Bridge between sweeter&bitterness reminds me of my car trips at night in the streets of my parents hometown when i was a child. So much to see and hear at once. There’s something hypnotizing that recalls me as well of some of the best tracks of Leftfield.

The two brothers from Glasgow play that electro Bhangra madness i could listen to all night long !  Ay-Ha is part of an EP including original track, instrumental and remixes from PMG, WAFA, Jakez Hench, Kumarachi and should as well be featured on the forthcoming album Digi-Bhang (2013).

Tigerstyle – Ay-Ha! ft Sarbjeet Kaur & Billa Bakshi (Intro by BiggTaj)

 

And to finish here’s one video of the Dewarists, a series of musical documentaries that will take you around the world. It’s real well produced, rather thorough as it takes time to present artists and what motivates them.

The Dewarists w/Brooklyn Shanti, Mou Sultana&Nucleya S02E08

 

You will notice that whatever the opinions and the backgrounds music reunite all these artists.

Vocal narration by Natsumi Suzuki

The Dolomites project has belted out an amalgamation of styles extracted from Europe, Japan, America, South America and other parts of the globe at intervals since 1998. Founded by Stevhen Koji Iancu aka Stefanko Selecta (Half-Japanese and Half-Romanian British-American National) in 1998, the Dolomites had their beginnings in an art punk house in Portland, Oregon.

Their first album “A Hogshead of Whiskey” was released in the year 2000 on Walking Records. Originally consisting mainly of drinking songs in Pogues styles with a Tom Waitsian accent, they later incorporated Gipsy, Jazz and Evil Disney sounds on the “Medicine Show E.P.”, released in 2002.

The Dolomite´s second album “Darumanian Chophouse” (2005), recorded and produced in Brooklyn, New York, brought out more Gipsy elements scrambled together with Japanese Pop and Enka style melodies. Stevhen Koji later went on hiatus from the Dolomites and started working with diverse musical projects, such as Gogol Bordello, Reverend Glasseye, Yerba Buena, Romashka, Mad Juana, as well as with OPVC, a gamelan theatre from San Francisco.

After being re-acquainted with his motherland (Japan), Stevhen Koji spent some time touring and recording in Japan and independently released 3 EPs on Monster Muzik : “Gaijin Gadjokai” (2007), “Nanjya Korya?-(What the [email protected]%k is this?)” (2008) and “No End” (2009).

Following the Japan years the Dolomites sound steadily morphed into something nomadically fresh, as of today bringing crunked out beats and bass to the Gipsy melodies, fusing 8Bit, chiptunes, glitch hop and wonkyness to an unmistakeable Dolomites “8Bit Balkan” (2011) sound released on If the Kids Records (Berlin).

Sexxy Saturday Cumbia – The Cumbia Gene

 

With the recent research I’ve been undertaking at my desk this past week I have found a frightening truth behind genetics. Up until now the sharing of genes were only known to happen in controlled environments by breeders and geneticists, but now I’ve come to a solid impossible to deny conclusion that there is another way. Soundborne (a new word I took the liberty of making up in order to define the process)! That is correct, at first I thought it was a virus but no it actually is a gene (because it’s better for my title “The Cumbia Gene,” virus sounds scary).

I ignored the more traditional ways of scientific method and came to my conclusion by deciding the outcome the way I thought it should be. Of course a geneticist will say there are genes in us that make us more musically inclined, but I found that it goes deeper than that. Soundborne genes have immediate effect in organisms once they reach the organism by way of sound. This explains why digital cumbia has become so popular in Northern Europe in such a short amount of time! And also why I am the international curator for it! I have no trace of Latin American blood in my system (yep my European ancestors didn’t rape anybody). So how did it come about that I would be in this position? Curiosity? Love of music? Nope! While they may have helped the soundborne gene to enter me (via my earholes and eyeholes), they did not actually change me into the cumbia head I am today.

Soundborne genes are among us. So be careful not to allow for the Pitbull soundborne gene to enter you. The South Korean Gangnam gene already engineers us all genetically, so it’s pointless to warn against that one.

Have you had enough of that nonsense and are ready for the cumbia? Then you’ve come to the correct paragraph. Tribilin Sound is among the popular Peruvian cumbia kids today. He has yet to disappoint me with his tunes and I expect a long cumbiero life for him.

October 5th was the official release date for Copia Doble Systema’s new EP Suelta La Voz. Featuring vocals by Pepita and remixes from trusted greats Javier Estrada and Thornato. Along with a couple of guys new to me, Joelito and Maffi.

It’s that time of year again where I act the fool by getting too excited by the ONLY holiday I care about – Halloween. I know it’s ridiculous but so am I so it just works out. Of course by the 31st I’m completely tired of it but it’s more about the season. I love horror and dark humor. I enjoy mocking death since it haunts most people’s entire lives. It’s my own way of vengeance I guess. And now with this time of year comes the annual Sexxy Saturday Cumbia – Sexxy Halloween Edition. For it’s second year I’ve recently made a call out to whoever wishes to submit cumbia/tropical bass related tracks. I worked on this video and song (some would say too hard, I being one of them that would say that) as a promo for the Halloween post. Watch it and send your tracks to me. It’s best if the latest you can give them to me is the 26th of October. Also if you want to keep your tracks private until then it might be better for the post but of course that’s entirely up to you. Send your tracks to me via Soundcloud http://soundcloud.com/john-newell, or Facebook or email ambient [email protected]

Sexxy Saturday Cumbia Halloween Year 2 from John Newell on Vimeo.

El Timbe chose to label his new awesome remix of Bigote’s “Toma Perreo” as “Bigoton”. A perfect name if you ask me you perfect name askers out there.

Side project of Jose Antonio Cuadrelli of Alto Peru, El Lobby Sound has made a heavy delay infused edit bringing El Humo de mi Fasito into the nu cumbia universe.

No one can stop DJ Neber from putting out dope tracks all week long. It’s hard to keep up with him. I wish from time to time that I wouldn’t care for one, but that hasn’t happened yet. Now he took on Dr. Dre! What am I to do?

Gux Swadharma has officially produced the best “La Zenaida” edit of all time! It’s high-energy perfection.

3ball’s evolution has come to an interesting place these past few months. Incorporating more melodic aspects proves the 3ball movement isn’t going to be as short-lived as some people thought. It still hasn’t taken the world by storm but it has become very popular in my neighborhood. I can turn on the radio to a top-40 station and hear it these days. It slowly is moving north but still hasn’t mad the impact down south as much as I’d like it too. Go to Monterrey, Chihuahua, Mexicali, Tijuana, Tucson, Phoenix, and San Diego and you can hear it at clubs and on the radio. So far not much impact north of us and south of Monterrey but we shall see. I think it will be much larger soon and by then we’ll be tired of it. So it goes.

To prove the amazing evolutionary positioning of 3ball here is DJ Broken Record’s massive edit of Rome’s “We Who Fell In Love With The Sea.” (My favorite track of the week by the way).

Furthermore here is Mr. Kanti W’s sense of humor at work.

DJ Pase is growing in popularity in the nu cumbia movement these days. He produced this really moody rebajada edit showing off his skills with delay manipulation.

Colombian Free Mix shared this crazy edit recently. I think it flows rather nicely after the last track.

Keeping with awesome and interesting edits, here is another really dope one by Oye Beto.

Also since we are at a chill point in this post, it would only be perfect to have a rebajada mix. Hmm where could I get one…? I know! I can revisit a mix made by Kinky Electric Noise. It was already posted on GB but here it fits rather perfectly.

This post keeps getting better as we move onto El Mulato’s new edit “La Vaca.” More delay for the delay lovers out there (I am one of them).

Jack Posada is the man. Representing the Colombian rooted sounds in Australia these days, he keeps very busy producing and playing out live. Here is his crazy “marimba bass” remix of Marimba Orquesta Gallito’s “Ritmo y Palmeras.” Thanks for the education my friend.

Pimenton will soon get a solo post from me. I’ve visited their tracks in the past. But I want to get people aware of them more. They are an awesome experimental band in Buenos Aires if you haven’t heard them. Here you go.

Club De Baile CD´M is a mad doctor when it comes to his work. His edits and mashups are unique and are growing in popularity. I think he keeps getting better.

Güirogüero is a three-track mind-funk of an EP from Armoniacida. His insane sound consists of dubstep, noise, cumbia, and IDM (not EDM kids!) creating a ball of awesome creativity.

I couldn’t resist posting another new track by Reptilian Commander! Everything he touches turns to golden dopeness. This time again he invades Tu Guaina.

Lima, Peru has the cumbia gene shared in every which way, soundborne, earborne, tongueborne and most definitely sexborne! Andean Illicit provides the genetic transfusion with his latest track.

Before I end this thing I wish to share with you my friends Dialect Trio’s new EP B’alam. You choose your price and you’ll get the original track along with two remixes from A Hypothetical Circus and Piper Street Sound. Also you get all the stems to use at will.

It’s a nice little EP featuring mad guitar playing by Russ Bledsoe.

Last up to end things of a dub vibe, is the new cumbia dub by Dialect Trio’s bass player Matthew Mansfield. It’s a good way to send you off with good vibes.

If you’ve read this far into the post then you definitely have been genetically engineered with the cumbia gene. It’s all good from now on.

Peace

Sexxy Saturday Cumbia – riTmo de POrro y Mas

A little gem surfaced from the deep waters of the web and revealed itself to me. It is a little four track EP called riTmo de POrro from Buenos Aires native Damo Naimad. It features true Afro-Colombian cumbia rhythms with delay effects, chilled haunting horns and beautiful Colombian vocalist Totó la Momposina. If you haven’t checked it out yet then you’re in for a treat, if you have then you’re in for a treat again.

Taking a turn to rebajada (chopped and screwed) Randy Salazar Jr. salutes democracy in Mexico with his new cumbia track just in time for the elections.

I’m not ready to speed it up yet. I also have what normally is a high-energy cumbia “Fiesta Cumbiambera”. Papi Perez edited this rebajada for us.

Turbo Sonidero Futuristico dropped this off to me earlier. He produced it a couple of years ago according to his computer and didn’t release it until now. I think he thought it was a bit weird for the time. But considering the rest of us brought the weirdness level up it now fits in quite well.

When it comes to blending hip hop with old school global cumbia DJ Neber is among my favorites. He has mad scratching skills and isn’t afraid to show it. Also he matches the hip hop beats so very well that it brings a whole new life to the track.

Here is a bit of his scratching and live flow. I think I actually might have downloaded most if not all of his tracks on SoundCloud.

It’s always a pleasure to hear more from Colombian artist Bleepolar. He’s back at it with his remix of Pernett’s “La Cumbia Continental”. This is definitely featuring the signature cumbia beats of Bleepolar.

A beautiful cumbia improvisation comes from Arun y la Cumbia (Arun Ruz) in this piece. Featuring vocals by Deva Baumbach. It truly is quite beautiful, quite intoxicating and quite original. I’m a sucker for improvisation, especially with live instrumentation or live playing. The electric piano solo is really nice done in this one.

“Cumbia Sammy (Nut Brown Cumbia)” is off of Piper Street Sounds new really awesome album “Cumbia de la Piedmont.” It’s a unique blend of digital drum programming, synth bass, synth leads and nylon string guitar playing. It shows the diverse talents of Atlanta producer Matthew Mansfield. And I beg of you to check out the album as soon as you can if you haven’t yet. It’s really exciting.

One song I thought I could happily live without ever having to hear again is “Pose” by Daddy Yankee. You know what I mean? Those top 40 tracks that are overplayed everywhere. It’s like with children watching the same animated movie 20-30 times a day without growing tired, it seems the top 40 clubbers have the same mentality. It’s hard for me to post anything like that here but this time I make an exception. I don’t know what possessed Sonidos Profundos to decide that he should make a remix of “Pose,” but to be honest as hard as it is for me to say, I am glad he did. It really sounds great when it has that unique Sonidos Profundos touch.

Now with rock en Español or electro pop I’m more inclined to be down with and normally am. Stereo Revuelta does justice with his awesome cumbia edit of “Deja Te Conecto” by Zoe. Adding some wobbles, cumbia rhythms and heavier bass makes for nice edit for the cumbia dance floor.

Copia Doble Systema rarely needs any help promoting their new tracks. This week is no exception. Promoting the apparently strong dancehall scene in Denmark they remixed Copenhagen resident dancehall team Eager and Stunn’s “Kugledans.” I checked out the original track too, both are awesome.

Urban World Records and Al Lindrum have been hard at work this past year compiling a remix album of the flamenco infused with urban modernization group Ojos De Brujo. The remix album consists of 13 remixes from various diverse producers and DJ’s.  The remixes range from dub-step to DnB to dancehall to cumbia all the way to breaks. Here I will post the last track on the album, a cumbia remix from Empresarios of the song “Ventilaor R-80.” It’s also exciting to have a new Empresarios digital cumbia to share here.

Last up I have an older one from DJ Rüstico. It’s a mashup of Cumbia mundial and Taliban del Amor. It’s really dope and I feel a strong need to post it here.
