Cumbiaton of Mexico City

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

DJ Pablio Mix – Muevete Suave

And this one by Peruvian DJ Yoger

DJ Yoger – La Gente Sabe que somos de la calle Remix

Yoger gets a shout out on the intro of this hammer of a track by a crew of girl MCs, Las Pisikatas.

Los Pisikatas – Leyes de Reforma

and this one by DJ Amparito

DJ Amparito – Los Verduleros

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.

DJ Spoko

Some excellent new SA house jams from DJ Spoko who you may remember collaborated with Mujava on the classic Bacardi house track, Township Funk.

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.

Check this In The Studio interview with him at XLR8R

YADI feat Baaba Maal & The Very Best

This epic new track by Algerian Londoner Yadi is great for some winter uplifting. Produced by The Very Best, It begins with Baaba Maal’s haunting vocals who’s then joined by Yadi herself as well as The Very Best’s Easu Mwamwaya. A beauty.

Yadi feat. Baaba Maal & The Very Best – Unbreakable

And here is the great new video shot in Casablanca to her debut single, The Blow, also produced by The Very Best’s Johan Hugo.

Darq E Freaker – Live on Rinse

I don’t know what you call Darq E Freaker’s productions..Grime, Hip Hop, Trap or none of those. He’s an originator and in my opinion one of the best new producers in the UK. So far he’s already worked with people like Wiley and If his amazing Blueberry single with crazed vocals from Danny Brown didn’t get you last year (released on the excellent Southern Hospitality label) then check this new live mix he just did on Rinse full of his own brutally funky cinematic riddims.
