World Cumbia Madness! by Caballo

Posted by: Mad Decent on 2012-06-05

Mad Decent striking again with a fresh sonic update!!! As you might have seen/heard recently trap, bubbling and moombah are in the spotlight!  Although in the “heavier leagues” three trends are making strong comebacks!

We already covered Brazilian, and African vibes; now its Cumbia’s turn!

Indeed, the Colombian born genre has mutated to become a world riddim, like many other caribbean/latino genres such as Jamaican dancehall or Panamanian dembow.  So if you fancy, let’s take a look on some of the dopest cumbia releases in the last weeks!

To begin, a Mad Decent Exclusive.. Major Lazer’s Bruk out by Juan Pachanga
Bruk Out (Juan Pachanga breaks Buraka remix)

The next track comes from the global activists Rebelsounds & Toronto’s own Latino Resiste Label who teamed up to release Cuero Digital.  This one is a strong Cumbia Release in where we can see the evolution of the genre, coming from the hands of the people who started it all. A very strong release not only in Latino Resiste/Rebelsounds original catalog, but also in any Digital Cumbia Catalog.  

And even better it is set as a FREE DOWNLOAD
