La Chusma : Cumbia Bestial (16 canciones bailables extra sabrosas)


As surprised as Berliner DJs may be about Cumbia being produced in far-away Australia, the Berlin scene surprised me last year how switched on they are to Cumbia.  Now a label dedicating itself to Cumbia is born in Berlin: Chusma Records, started up by DJ TioChango and DJ Don Chicharrón of La Chusma.  Their first serving is a compilation that claims to define a new sub-genre known as Cumbia Bestial.  The compilation is called Cumbia Bestial!, and available as download, vinyl EP or CD with a great booklet.  The first half of the comp is more hip hop influenced, with the second half really taking off in a more electronic direction with the likes of Toy Selectah, Zurita, Copia Doble Systema, El Remolon and the Cumbia Cosmonauts.
