This LP is 100% analogue and comes with an original screen-printed front cover designed by the London based artist Lewis Heriz.
Assembled using vallenato and cumbia musicians living in Cali, Los Miticos del Ritmo are a 7 piece studio band put together by British musician, producer and now Colombian resident Will ‘Quantic’ Holland.
Covers of Queen’s ‘Another One Bites The Dust’, Michael Jackson’s ‘Don’t Stop’ and Gildardo Montoya’s ‘Fabiola’ (as featured on Soundway’s ‘The Original Sound of Cumbia’ sit along side original cumbias on this feel good, house party cumbia LP.
Recorded in Will’s home studio in Cali, his approach was to produce an album with the aesthetics of 1960s tropical recordings made in Colombia and the Caribbean. Careful attention made to preserve the analogue quality of the recording at every stage.
The Result is this amazing sound
Los Miticos Del Ritmo – Otro Muerde El Polvo (Another One Bites The Dust) by Soundway
This might be THE BIGGEST CUMBIA RELEASE after Sancocho e’ Tigres.. In my personal opinion.
And a serious contender for El paso del tamal as best cumbia.. so far.
