Mexicali’s Marco Polo Gutierrez aka. Den5ion has an new EP out via. Cocobass where he counts the history of an 18 years joven who killed his whole family in colorfull music between Tech-house, Cumbia Digital, Hip Hop and 3ball.
Cumbia No 2 – Guns of Brixton – Chicha Libre
I was always a big Fan of The Clash and Brixton is just a magic place breathing lots of british Reggae History. So here comes Chicha Libre, a Brooklyn-based collective which count members from Mexico, France, Venezuela and the US with a new 4 Track EP playing some Cover Versions. Chicha was a Peruvian form of cumbia, itself the most popular – and often most populist – of all South American rhythms. In the 1970’s, Peruvian musicians took their cues from Colombian dance music and their own Amazonian and mountain traditions, but also from British and Californian psych rock. Chicha musicians favored electric guitars with wah pedals and fuzztone and worshipped Eric Clapton, Jimmy Hendrix – and Willie Colon.

Cumbia No 5 – Subidero (Kinky Electric Noise Remix) – Madre Monte
Miami, Fl based Colombian/American Kinky Electric Noise combines the musical and cultural influences of Latin America (cumbia, porro, vallenato, chicha, champeta) and the Caribbean (dub, reggae, dancehall) with the bass heavy sounds of early hip hop, electro, breakbeat and house. Hard hitting horns funkin’ up 50s style Cumbia, a tight rhythm section dissecting Afro-Colombian progressions, skankin’ guitars infusing reggae grooves, and a front man recreating the ancient mythological stories of Colombia all intertwine to create what is now Melbourne’s unique 9-piece Latin Reggae outfit Madre Monte.
