yes! coming soon on Soot: a compilation of Nueva Cumbia Argentina selected by Sonido Martines! 12″ for the DJs, then CD for the rest of the world. we’ve been working on this for months, almost there… heads up for some European dates w/ Sonido & myself in April.

[12″ roughs by Zurita]

last nite’s party in SF was inspiring — 400+ folks came out and dance the night away with us!

while Sonido’s comp focuses on the Buenos Aires scene, the sound travels. Here’s a fresh slice from Mexico, Grupo La Cumbia de Darwin Perea. . This synthy tune belongs to the cumbia subgenre of ‘negrita’ tunes. Which are about love, lust, human ownership, loss, and memory — slavery music! (sort of).

“TO ALL MY BROWN GIRLS IN THE WHOLE WORLD, WITH AFFECTION”

-a donde vas negrita?

-a Nueva York mi amor.

  1. lovely tune. how fresh is this slice?

    to me cumbia is about constant, steady movement, siempre tirando palante. so please, por mi, seguir tirando y desenterrando!

  2. not yet– but that’s a great idea and something we can implement. We’re still a few months out, Sonido is busy hunting down permissions for a few final tracks… we’ll have it a CD with nice liner notes & photos etc, and an MP3 version w/ a PDF containing the same info.

    thanks for listening!

  3. it’s a little late, but thanks for making out to the west cost! SF party was one of the best shows i’ve seen in a while.

  4. big up Bersa Discos crew for the SF party!!!! it was a HUGE PLEASURE to play cumbia (for the first time!) to such an awesome crowd/soudnsystem
