Mad Decent Does Cumbia
That was fast.
Less than a month after visiting the Argentine capital, Diplo has put together a podcast filled with cumbia beats he picked up during his time in Buenos Aires. Entitled Soy Cumbia!, the mix is part of the ongoing and often excellent podcast series Mad Decent Worldwide Radio.
With the podcast Diplo posted a small rundown of some of his experiences in Buenos Aires and also doled out some major shout outs to the Zizek party and local mashup wizard Villa Diamante. Although he doesn't include a tracklist, the mix includes sounds from local producers like El Hijo de la Cumbia, El Remolón and Chancha Vía Circuito along with some more obscure cumbia offerings, many of which probably do not even come from Argentina.
Apparently this podcast is not the end of the Diplo's cumbia love affair, as he promises to "do something bigger with the sound later in the year." I can't wait.
