Ever wonder where El-B - the man who's drums inspired Burial to start producing - got his rhythm from?
Well if you're a fan and you've pondered the origin of that deadly syncopated swing he injects into his tracks (it's not anywhere in the EU that's for sure) then this probably makes a lot sense, like it did for me.
I love Cumbia and i know absolutely nothing about it, other than it's almost impossible to sit still through.
Cut up dance hall style with air horns and shout-outs, this 55 minute mix is a perfect intro to Cumbia and ideal for walking through the Mission, or any other sunny Latino-filled place, on a day like today.
Here I basically just write about whatever I'm into at the moment. Mostly it's music, but also some books and a good political rant every now and then, circumstances warranting. I'll post links to audio I think is worth downloading, but basically, it's just self-indulgence in the typical fashion of web 2.0 user generated content. This is blogging after all, a bare minimum amount of narcissism is implied, is it not?
If you've taken the time to read all of this you may as well check out some of my posts. And if you've gotten something from this blog or you think my writing sucks, I'm full of shit, etc.- why not reply or contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org? I would sincerely love to hear from you, whoever you are...
