I often bang on about my trip to Tepito market in Mexico DF in 2010 where I picked up a sweet selection of pirated cdrs of 3ball, cumbia, duranguense and a load of other regional mexican party styles. A couple of the most exciting cds for me were reggaeton – but not the normal synth drenched smooth Puerto Rican melodic vocal style of the last few years. These tracks were closer to the original brutally funky percussive led chopped up dembow tracks like Tra Tra Tra based around vocal samples. So over the last couple of years, I always seem to throw a few of these down in my own sets and thought i’d share a few.
One track that I loved immediately was this one by DJ Pablito Mix
And this one by Peruvian DJ Yoger
Yoger gets a shout out on the intro of this hammer of a track by a crew of girl MCs, Las Pisikatas.
and this one by DJ Amparito
Vice recently posted up a really cool short film by Bernado Loyola on the Mexico city cumbiaton scene presenting the inspiring Under Style DJ collective led by Pablito Mix. Vamonos.
Batida smashed it at their recent Boiler room/Studio Africa sets which you can watch here. Make sure you catch them this year. They’ve also recently dropped an excellent free album of remixes by folk like Spoek Mathambo, Octo push and the highly awesome NaZaretH Yumbala remix we put out.

Firstly JB horns punctuate ‘Cucumba’.
And from his new buyable Ghost Ship EP on True Panther Sounds, I’m loving ‘Azange’ featuring vocals from Magaula & Puzuzu from Ghetto Boyz.
