Cumbia never dies. It evolves.
After a huge wave of cumbia in the late 2000s the genre got steady and went back to their original roots in most of the countries that the genre is still alive.
Argentina, Colombia and Mexico kept evolving the genre without losing its cultural impact and it’s very much alive and well in the underground scene, although there is an obvious disconnect between the playlists on the digital streamers and what really people listen on parties, especially street based parties.
Latino Resiste’s Carnnibal who has dropped 3 dancehall albums with the label goes Mestizo with the head honcho Caballo to release BADMAN TALKIN’.
A truly mestizo sound that will remind you why Cumbia and Ragga Dancehall are cousins, and when they both are on the same page.. IT’S STRAIGHT FLAMES.

Since the label inception we have been keeping an eye on everything Tribal, we were very grateful to spot some of the most talented guys at the moment before they got famous such as Erick Rincon, Dj Tetris or Javier Estrada on our compilations AZTLAN & 3BALL (CLICK TO check them out)
In the same spirit, these genres keep evolving, and we’ve got the privilege to unveil for many this super talented producer.

Latino Resiste‘s MAL DICEN has returned with our first full studio album since the pandemic. But we are updating the label not fully finely-tuned, radio-friendly ‘bidda bang’ nor completely underground only few people can recognize. Naturally, it’s both – with the focus being on ‘flavor and roots’ . And we’ve got this Argentinian producer DOXZON releasing WACHIN THON which naturally, it’s superb.
WACHIN THON, sees DoxZon recreating with a swathe of both genres and artists across 10 tracks. Some songs are originals; some have already been released and others are remixes. There’s something in the album that really stands out, DoxZon is making FUTURE MALAMBO, which is a barely known genre outside Argentina, and Gustavo Cerati’s rapto gets this FUTURISTIC MALAMBO that leaves it still as compelling, creative and powerful as ever.
The best thing about WACHIN THON it’s the breadth of styles and genres that DOXZON has dived into which is most impressive. It’s clear that he has intentionally trodden a tightrope between bringing a commonly known sound bang into 2022 but also keeping a signature style alive.
AfroDancehall features heavily. As well as Moombahton, Baile funk, and Reggae, but it is the Future Malambo tracks that make this Wachin Thon stand out from everything else you hear on regular basis.

Following the current state of affairs in Colombia and Brazil, iconic Baile-funk originator, DJ CHERNOBYL and LATINO RESISTE team up to unveil a feral expansion in the baile funk universe.
We believed for the past year that being in a pandemic was not a good time to drop music that intends to please mostly party/festive/dj fueled scenes. However, the current situation in Brazil and Colombia with a right-wing police state calls for LR to join the fight with the best tool we have..
CHANGING THE SYSTEM.
that’s why we unveil this new sound:
An explosive crude and revolutionary approach to how the favela meets club minded people in order to add this to any heavy bass underground party.

The first track is called HARI HARI, which is a straight up banger using Neo-Baile funk tactics with a fast paced 150 tempo that calls for heavy charging
Track number two HORNZAUM uses the very common favela bass HORNS with this epic riddim that builds up to an even better polyrhythm base that makes it impossible not to jump or headbang.
On third base, we go even darker, completely mental
AS MINA ASSIM.. imagine a pure BERLIN TECHNO inside a Rio de Janeiro favela warehouse.
Last but not least, DJ CHERNOBYL, add his massive support to the resilience with COLOMBIA.
Bass techno blended with neo-favela
For many years French producer Hugo Douster has been a key figure in the European Tropical scene under his DOUSTER moniker; however once he switched to darker beats with a huge African/Caribbean vibe on his KING DOUDOU project he really took it to the next level to the point of being one of the guys behind the music on J BALVIN’s megahit NEGRO.
He dropped this amazing Perreo Android Riddim back in the days, which triggered the inner beast on Canadian producer Caballo to take it to the Criminal level, which is exactly a combination of both.
PERREO CRIMINAL is available for ZERO PESOS at bandcamp or SC
Electronic producers’ mad dash to work with latin rhythms; After the hybrid blending of reggaeton and Dutch house and the massive appeal that dembow has right now, we have guys like Junior Ponce, a Venezuelan living in Buenos Aires dropping some mad latin bass called MUEVEN which relies on the wiggly instrumental hook that is often popular in moombahton.
Track is simply a bomb to be enjoyed for personal abuse or at any dj set!!
Costa Rica hasn’t always been on the tip of one’s tongue when talking about great bass/reggaeton scenes.
However, if you are always keeping an eye on the usual moombahton/dembow/reggaeton oriented soundcloud labels, you will find our Tico homeboy JavierJoeK making strong statements about Costa Rica’s own take on the genre.
Costa Rica’s own take on the genre.
We are very please to unveil his most recent EP named Salvaje which is nothing else but a truly great effort to focus Javier’s energy toward original tracks rather than doing what he does best, which is amazing remixes.
On Salvaje we find a more creative Javier, willing to play with basslines and having straight up fun to set any dancefloor on fire regardless the genre you are playing.
These 3 songs can fit ANY set.. dembow, reggaeton, moombahton, dancehall, bass, you name it, this is a savage release for #zeropesos
Grime wasn’t exactly supposed to be the sort of genre that bred elder statesmen.
Bass music wasn’t either.
However, like many things coming from the underground scene; both ended up being major players in the mainstream arena.
It was a burst of thrilling anarchy, all these unruly teenagers fuming giddily over homemade PlayStation beats that sounded like malfunctioning spaceships. Grime artists didn’t play shows; they played raves. Young artists were old souls, and a guy like Dizzee Rascal was already radiating bitter paranoia at 16. Wiley, the man who probably deserves the lion’s share of the credit for inventing and developing the sound in the first place, spent his early years beefing with ex-proteges and loudly insisting on his own importance; he’s still doing both now.
It was the UK secret weapon on the streets. This seemed like one of those sudden bursts of collective inspiration that burns hot and fast and then disappears. For a while, that’s what happened, and old grime stars started making crossover dance-pop hits. Grime still exists, but on its pure form doesn’t bring the same sense of excitement that it had in 2003 or, for that matter, 2015. The fractious scene has spun off into a bunch of still-chaotic but smaller scenes, giving birth to UK drill and road rap.
That is why we are beyond excited to drop the first ever Latino Resiste full grime EP by our homeboy CHONG X .
Chong X come back EP is setting an amazing take for the genre, because it totally blends the bass spirit, while maintaining the grimey essence.
The album is set for FREE DOWNLOAD as part of our 10th year celebration.
