Sonido Martines (again)

Back in July, I put up a post about Buenos Aires cumbia connoisseur Sonido Martines and the fact that DJ/rupture invited him to put together a mix for the Mudd Up! show on seminal New York radio station WFMU.

Sonido Martines used the opportunity to put together an exclusive mix of cumbias rebajadas, an experimental cumbia style in which the tracks are pitched way down. The mix is called Las Rebajadas Van a Brooklin and the folks at the Word the Cat blog have been kind enough to make the entire thing available here as an mp3 download.

Las Rebajadas Van a Brooklin playlist:

Combo Sampuesano - Cumbia Monteriana
Adolfo Pacheco - Te Espero Morena
Vargas Vil - Como Yo Soy Tan Raro
Luis Enrique Martinez - Cumbia Valledupar
Super Grupo Colombia - Cumbia de Los Estados
Alejo Duran - Vuela Pajarito
La Cumbia Moderna de Soledad - ¿Crees Que Soy Sexy?
Los Mirlos - La Danza de Los Mirlos
Super Grupo Colombia - Pajaro Cenzontle
Lizandro Mesa - Cumbia pa'Oriente
Andres Landero - Cumbia Popular

Just last week, Sonido Martines appeared live on the Mudd Up! airwaves, dropping by the studio for a bilingual interview and the chance to play some more oddball cumbia tracks. WFMU has the entire playist here, along with RealAudio and mp3 links for the entire show along with individual links for each track that was played. Cumbia diehards and anyone interested in experimental sounds is highly recommended to dig in and enjoy.

By the way, major props to WFMU for being so on top of things when it comes to technology.

Terrific work! This is the type of information that should be shared around the web. Shame on the search engines for not positioning this post higher!
