Not a while ago, THE GUARDIAN, made a review about Electro champeta, in where Generation bass was mentioned briefly.
Two of the bands mentioned have a special relationship in their own way with me.
Qurrambeat, is -quoting The Guardian- the artist moulding the genre into strange new shapes , undoubtedly. His electro style takes champeta’s African-Colombian rhythms and creates weird, skeletal and primitive dance tracks that sound completely new, rather than being particularly champeta in form.
And the second Band:
US-based Colombians Plastic Caramelo are pioneering a form that they call “glampeta”, which sounds like a Colombian MIA.
They are pushing the genre to a BOOTY-LIKE riddim!!
It’s like Major Lazer meets Picoteros!!
Leading them is Christian Castagno, who, alongside his wife, Tatiana, explosive liseth, gaspar and my very good friend Lalo Yunda are changing the Champeta world!!
well..here’s the band alter egos

Now..if u want to know why Plastic Caramelo has a special relationship with me (caballo)
Lalo from Plastic Caramelo (dread guy) went to school with me.. and we used to listen to hardcore, punk, and heavy metal with Sergio!!
So when i found Plastic Caramelo i was super happy!! cuz i saw my only close school mates were not that far from what i was!!
