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.

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.

Generation Bass presents Javier Estrada’s Prehispanico!

Music is everything man. Music is global and music is power. Music is the means to global communication, in rhythm and words, and in harmony. We are always on the lookout for new people to join the ranks of the growing, global Generation Bass family that communicates through sound, and it looks like we struck gold with Mexico’s most exciting new producer, Javier Estrada. He is new to many people but we’ve been championing him since 2010 after giving him his first exposure on the worldwide blogosphere.

This man delivers everything from tribal to moombahton to pre-hispanic dubstep in a unique, fun-loving, high-energy and tropical manner. Javier’s prolific production portfolio is a tour-de-force through the best that Latin America has to offer in this new burgeoning tropicalized electronica scene and a show of all the possibilities that exist within the ever-expanding world of tropical bass.

This forthcoming EP on Generation Bass is something REALLY special though. This is a slice of deep, Prehispanic rhythmic music, which tries to capture the essence of the Aztec people. The shuffling, slowly evolving and hypnotizing riddims remind us of the impenetrable jungles of South-America and the mystic blood rituals of the Aztecs.

We can try to paint this picture through words but the real power of this release is in its actual musical form. The combination of South American melodies, rhythmic and bass elements that refer to cumbia and of course, guarachero, mixed with the sheer power of crisp modern production is what does the real talking here.

Everyone at Generation Bass has been blown away by this release and everyone who has heard bits and snippets of it is equally impressed. We believe this might be one of the most interesting things you will hear in 2012. If you have ever seen the clips of young kids in Mexico that wear shoes with tips that almost reach their face dancing to this, you know it is the real deal… Be sure to pick this up and keep your eye out for Javier Estrada, a prolific and skilled producer that will take on the world one percussion layer at a time.

Animal Chuki – Animals Within

When I see anything uploaded with the origin being from Peru I have learned to immediately check it out. My experiences in the past have created this habit because the sounds coming from Peru are among the most interesting and innovative today. If you wish to challenge my opinion I beg of you to do so. I’ll even make it easy for you by posting about one of the more interesting duos to hit the Internet clouds of recent months.

Their name is Animal Chuki and they’re from Lima, Peru. The exciting duo comprises of Andread Campos and Daniel Valle-Riestra. Animal Chuki explores the animal inside the minds of modern EDM producers.

Mixing dumbia, moombahton and the animalistic nature makes for a dark atmosphere filled with energetic rhythms and explorative effects and samples.

Let’s first discover the animal nature behind the hunger for narcotics with this intense moombahton track.

We must also visit the mind of the king of the jungle. El Rey is a very dark synth heavy side of the animal producer kingdom.

Not all of the animals are limited to being grounded to the Earth. Some are fortunate enough to fly. This one takes us above the forest canopy at incredible speed exploring the forest of sounds below. I can see the great giant waterfall up ahead.

Disc Jockey Nappy – This Is Thugstep

We over at Rock The Dub have spent over half a decade curating the ‘Thugstep’ sound. Back in the days when acapellas for just about any song were easy to find, I was going to town. There were still CD singles and vocals on vinyl, and I knocked out well over 100 solid refixes in less than 6 months.

Then I pulled a disappearing act. Nothing new came out for 4 years. My manager slowly leaked these songs. DJ Cable spoke about the influence the ONLY mix I ever did had on his sound selection in an MTV article. Huge DJs were playing these tunes at soundclashes. Coki rinsed his signature refix (and the first Thugstep track I released) on the radio. I was nowhere to be found.

The now-defunct ‘Hoodlum’ collective I was a part of had a reputation for bootlegging tracks that we liked. The site lapsed into oblivion, and everyone moved onto other things. Hipnotikk got consistent bookings in Atlanta and lined up with the homies over at Freakbeat Records. Cable started his Triangulum imprint and is currently releasing some of the swankiest boutique bass music out. And I started the “Thugstep Commission” series over at ClubTapes. I’m over 100,000 streams there, and just getting warmed up.

But these were studio mixes. And the only way to build a brand and a market is to share your music with an audience. The ‘This Is Thugstep’ series will be in 4 parts, and will be released over the next 4 months to highlight some of my favorite tunes in the past 6 years. No drops. No shouting. Just 320’s of tunes that I love to hear when I’m out.

Please share, download, and enjoy.

Sick Balkan/Gypsy Moombah appearing in my set from the video below…

 

My ( Okulus Anomali )Balkan/Gypsy Bass set caught on video from last week in Miami featuring Pyro Fusion performances (pardon the choppy editing)…I started at 108 bpm and ended up at 140 bpm in 45 minutes. Good times.
