El-B's Mundo Musica Cumbia Mix

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.
