Cal Jader's Tropicalista Cumbia mix

Here's a Cumbia mix thats an attempt to cover some of the broad range of styles and some of the main players within the new Cumbia movement from the block rocking Hip Hop Cumbia and Dancehall fusions to the old school Colombian sound to heavyweight Mexican Sonideros, raw Vallenato, Argentinian digital Cumbia and beyond.

Plenty of exclusive unreleased tracks, remixes and edits here plus new releases forthcoming including Sergent Garcia feat Li Saumet (Bomba Estereo) on Cumbancha Records, and Paco Mendoza and The Binary Cumbia Orchestra (both on La Chusma)

Big shout for the inspiration and tunes on this mix to UK crews / labels Soundway and Sofrito, Berlin's La Chusma, NY's Dutty Artz / Que Bajo (Geko Jone/ Uproot Andy), Sol Selectas (DJ Sabo), DC's Fort Knox Five, Argentina's ZZK, Sonido Martines, Frente Cumbiero (Mario) in Bogota, Quantic in Cali, & Cumbia Cosmonauts (Moises) reppin Melbourne and of course dedicated to our 100% Cumbia Tropical party in London ARRIBA LA CUMBIA!
