Prisioneros

For followers of Sexxy Saturday Cumbia, the Chile based netlabel Regional Label will be a household name. But you should all keep an eye on this channel.. This EP, released two days ago is the new project of one of my all-time favourite artists, Yelram Selectah!

Regional Label describes Yelram’s style as ‘post-cumbia’. ‘Prisioneros’ is an ominous fusion of cumbia, hard trap beats and dark synths that are an artistic, critical reflection on the socio-political situation of Mexico today. Five major Mexican producers have contributed with remixes.

The alround nu-cumbiambero Pa Kongal brings a vibe that holds the middle between zouk bass, lento, cumbia and a little bit of twerk!

Experimental bass talent Mr Jags did an amazingly crazy trap-twerk-techno edit which is probably even darker than the original!

El Catorce also chose for a powerful trap-techno vibe but at a much higher speed, with heavier 808s kicks and massively reverbed percussion!

X-1 delivers a delicious closing track with a thoughtful deep drum ‘n bass remix!
