Here comes Andrés Digitals original Cumbia Round Up No72 and I’m gona start this one with a big OH COLOMBIA. My Timeline is/was full with Colombianxs who cant understand what is going on there. There are lots of money and big Players in the game and the Landreform will not only produce winners. But if they not voted for Peace, for what did they vote? And yes, Premium Nobel for Santos. Respect! But seems like there is still a long way to go.
But back to the music, back to Cumbia in all variations. This month I got 24 Tunes in 1 Hour for you to take away.
1 – Guerreros del Amor – El Remolon
From BsAs comes el Veteran Cumbero El Remolon with his first solo Album Album. The Album has 8 Tracks between Acid sounds, House reminiscent bases, Trap, deep Voices, Autotune and Synthesizers that could either come from a minimal track or a Cumbia Villera. Within this open route, there is one outstanding element, contrasting with El Remolon’s previous works, and that is a clear political message, focused on personal emotions, always toward one center: love.
2 – Gian-Carla Tisera – Señora chichera (Pablo Pachacutik Remix)
From Cochabamba, Bolivia comes Pablo Pachacutik with an 3 Track EP released on Kumbale

Dead Stare dives into the world of Boombahchero on this release, a made up genre where simple 4 on the floor Moombahton beats are turned into syncopated 3/4 bass tunes that invoke a marching rhythm, similar to that of 3ball or Guarachero.
