Canalh on his cumbia mission !!
Today, I am pissed of with a lot of things. When you wake up like that you need to put some good vibee music loudly. So I guess, It’s one of this post you can trust me and get up and dance…
Two months ago I was in Montpellier with my LP’s from the 70′s but when I took the decks, obviously the public was not that type of dusty groovers… So I stick to my 2 “Serato vinyles” and I threw some Papalote ! ”One of the most respected DJs to grace the Bay Area“, and they when nuts. Miguel Escobedo has been manning the decks for over two decades, starting in 1987. In 1999, he opened the restaurant, “Papalote” with his brother, which has garnered much attention recently as they won the culinary battle against the Food Network’s Bobby Flay.” Let’s say he’s cooking some real cumbia mashups !!

You don’t present Bleepolar on Sexxy saturday cumbia. If you don’t know about him, you can’t be a real cumbiambero: he’s part of the nu-cumbia tsunami so catch it before he blows everything. He comes with a good remix of Marlon Asher & Leah Rosier. Accordion, reggae vibe and a big tech/house kick very distinctive of Bleepolar which makes this remix automatic dancefloor friendly. Plus it has a slightly reggaeton shift in the middle, great. Oh ! and the voice of Leah, “the reggae diva from amsterdam” And Asher are really sweet too. It’s OUT on 25th on DUBBHISM the legendary Runcome Sound System.
Riot selector from Bogota comes with this one which is quite pop (piano and horns sounds like 90′s merengue and Alex and Fido is not exactly what I call “good”), but the minimix track is not bad as a whole and goes really hot at 1:52 when he drops Daddy Mory: it totally fits the Sexxy vibe of today.
Then you can chill a bit with this rebajado mix of Chico Ye:
