One of the better videos I’ve seen this year, although some people could argue the hands+walls thing has been done to death, the rest of the visuals make up for it. The track combines that light guitar sound I happen to enjoy A LOT with some superb beats, definitely check it out.
This track is featured on the Future Sounds of Buenos Aires compilation (Amazon MP3 US link), which is a collaboration between the LA-based Waxploitation label and the Buenos Aires-based ZZK Records. If you like this combination of electronic/electro-house/cumbia/reggaeton the way I do, you owe it to yourself to check out that compilation.
Welcome to the first week in NY where every high is above 50 degrees Fahrenheit! Every time it gets warm in the spring I bust out the cumbia beats. For the longest time I wondered why all the people making cumbia always sing about how hot it is out then tonight I just realized that it’s because it’s actually probably pretty hot where and when they’re listening to it (the equator region in South America).
Here’s a old Systema Solar song, I’m a sucker for street parties I think. They call themselves an audio-visual collective of Afro-Caribbean beats, which is pretty accurate given their particular flavor of cumbia and tecnocumbia
You can listen to their album on the Internet Archive, if that’s your thing. Don’t miss the track “Ya veras”, it’s probably my favorite.
