latino resiste

Ruta Panamericana del Sonido, is back again.
This time we go to the top of the whole continent. Literally, RPS strikes from Bolivia.

The trip which started a-la Che Guevara, is not political oriented, but it does have a very political intention: trying to unveil the Urban Culture and Music from each country “La Panamericana” crosses by.

Ruta Panamericana’s own Caballo & Chong X are joined by Bolivian bassheads Ale Cassis, Dj Quien, Villa Victoria Soundsystem and Oliver Sky.

If Che Guevara died in Bolivia, these rebels are trying to make sure Bolivia doesn’t get behind in the collective mind of the Empire in terms of sounds.

So, join us for this amazing trip.

Now, do not feel or create the perception that this is the only kind of stuff created in that wonderful country,
There are hundreds of great releases that you may find either at OI MAS BASS soundcloud, or the individual SC streams from Bolivian producers.

Having in Mind that Bolivian Music is perhaps one of the lesser known scenes from South America, we needed to make a strong alliance with Oi Mas Bass, who are perhaps the strongest Bass Collective from La Paz.
If Che Guevara died in Bolivia, these rebels are trying to make sure Bolivia doesn’t get behind in the collective mind of the Empire in terms of sounds.
Please, do not believe this country is behind in any sense. They have a very strong bass scene that has been covered about the key players before.

The final result is exactly what the Bolivian Bass scene sounds like. A perfect blend between Andean roots, and Modern Bass. From Digital Cumbia, to Moombahton, to Bashment, or Cumbiathon; Bass en la Alturas is just the perfect example of the modern music played in the under Bolivian Scenes.

Ruta Panamericana del sonido is a project started by Chong X and myself, and on each stop we are joined by local musicians.

This time our Bolivian bassheads are Ale Cassis, Dj Quien, Villa Victoria Soundsystem and Oliver Sky.
