Today post is very special, as it will cover new & old, unique and very musical styles from the planet.
To begin: this track from el dusty, a latin-funk, Trap banger (FREE)
Major Lazer’s Jillionaire is supporting this Caribbean soca bubbling
One of the most exciting releases of this late 2012 comes from a partnership Analog Africa-Palenque-fuentes (if you are into the label’s names, you may know these cats’ catalogs are simply sublime)..
so their compilation about very rare cumbia songs from key players who shifted the genre is a world class release.
From this one, was really hard to pick one.
Although Calixto Ochoa is a good choice, (why you may ask), he was the leader and one of the founders of Corraleros del Majagual (something like the beatles of cumbia).
The song shows how well executed was the early cumbia.
To update the sound a bit more, we have trunkstep!
This song samples that 1969 hit Blowing up my Mind by The Exciters.
Original song was one of the first attempts to blend soul, reggae and funk. This one, well.. Trunkstep! (FREE)
