Cumbia is a type of latin music that originated in Colombia’s carribean costal area. I never knew about it until I heard this dope green slice from the South American based Quantic. To put it short, Will Quantic has got a bunch of local musicians together and recorded some golden era hip hop covers, Cumbia style. A totally off the wall vision but the results are splendid (I didn’t think I ever wanted to hear T.R.O.Y again, but I do now). This project has mass appeal if you ask me. As shown in the picture, the final product is looks lovely & comes with a serato tone on 1 side. Yes I’ll admit, I like acordeon’s !!!

Mochilla have dropped their newest batch of eccentric Mix CD’s.
Quantic delivers Caja Y Guacharacha, which is a selection of earthy music from his new place of residency, Colombia & Panama. It is a very colourful, rhythmically complex and a selection of music you won’t of heard unless your from this part of the world and love digging.
Count Bass D and Aardvark have also released mixes but I decided for the 2 above. I have no doubt they are of a high standard because Mochilla is one of them labels that will always put out good stuff as the people running it are passionate about music & art.
