Latino Resiste Presents Root A Pacifica

Latino Resiste is back!
After almost a year of work, we finally can give away one of the most anticipated releases of 2012.
ROOT A PACIFICA (FREE DOWNLOAD)
Selected by Dj Mundo & Caballo
Art made by AFROMESTIZA (Music donated by the artists -Read Disclaimer)

This is an ambitious compilation that gathers something that must be totally or partially unknown for a lot of the `world Music` or Global Bass audience: AFRO PACIFIC SOUNDS.

By saying this; we will like you to join us in a trip, in where many names are going to be unknown for you, but we guarantee, each one of the artists or bands has a trademark, a great name and history behind; which is the reason we felt it was necessary to do ROOT A PACIFICA.

Back in the days, in Latin America, Black communities after getting their freedom decided to move rapidly to the coasts. Contrary of the popular belief about what Afro-Latina culture is (due the fact many of us are very Familiar with the Atlantic and Caribbean sounds from the continent) Pacific and Atlantic cultures and music are very different.

In fact, the vast majority of black community moved to the dense jungle in the pacific side of the continent, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, or Brazil; which kept their traditions very much alive, although at the same time, pushed them into oblivion from governments or state and technology.

Centuries later, these communities are still struggling to survive, not only economically but also musically speaking.

Lots of music curators, and producers have been watching closely the Afro pacific arise, this rise has increase since 2002, in the underground scene, mainly in two big scenarios: the fusion (which includes jazz or a more musical virtuoso approach) and the URBAN scene which includes Hip hop or Dancehall.

Everyone had a small influence of Gualajo (one of, if not, the originator & Maximum figure for this Afro-pacific sound as we know it).
Gualajo is to Afro Pacific what James Brown is to funk.
So from La Mojarra Electrica, to Socavon. From Herencia Negra, to Chocquibtown everyone had a big or small influence of his sound.

Two events, separated and interconnected at the same time were the first steps to create this scene, Petronio Alvarez`s Festival which is trying to preserve the identity and richness of the black communities from the pacific coast, and the second event happened in the urban scene when everything changed after Quibdo`s very own band CHOCQUIBTOWN reached mainstream popularity winning a Grammy award.
These two events triggered a replica effect in the urban scene, and many more producers and Labels were genuinely interested in the afro-pacific sound.

One of those is Canadian producer UPROOT ANDY who decided to donate his song but also to drop his perspective about the Pacific music.

Uproot Andy talks about Afro Pacific Music from caballo on Vimeo.

Palenque Records, were the first ones in actually nailing it as usual.
Palenque Records CEO Lucas Silva aka Champeta man, recorded Gualajo years before he was popular, in fact, the reason many of us know about that music it is because those recordings were made.

He teamed with Alguacil Dubkilla to donate this Gualajo song

Chocquibtown singer is also present in La Hija de Zion, a collaboration made for Voodoo souljah`s single
in where Lia Samantha takes the lead role.

Latino Resiste role was struggling to get to the core of the underground,as (Caballo knew lots of the popular names)
but we needed someone right there.
It is where our selector, DJ MUNDO, comes to play, our Julian Asange, our Banksy, the guy behind Rebelsounds and being one of the most elusive but well known names in the mestizo-latino underground scene at the same time, he was the perfect choice to be the main originator of the whole Root a Pacifica compilation. He leads this compilation towards the right direction.. (La Ruta Pacifica)

And he brings such an impressive display of variety that makes this Root a Pacifica, a game changer, as we did few months before 3BALL got their boom, when we released AZTLAN, Latino Resiste wants to be the gate to people who barely know, or have never heard about Afro Pacific Music.

We have tried to display as much variety as possible, and we strongly encourage that if you like these sounds or any of the artists you will hear, support or share their music, because they were kind enough to donate it.

Latino Resiste Presents AZUCAH SELECTAH

Latino Resiste is BACK!!!

As you know this is a project that tries to unite Latin American sense of the underground scene, bringing music, graphics, and at the same time people, like you or me, all under a single motion,..SABOR!!!

LATINO RESISTE presents AZUCAH SELECTAH!!
FREE DOWNLOAD!!
Selected by Maite Hontele, DJ MUNDO & Caballo

or copy/paste http://www.mediafire.com/?3b4b3r3yv2oxbxk

Latino Resiste is a compilation of music, and slowly it’s turning into a social project!!
Once you download the album and you see the Booklet, and the ART you will see why…

LR presents Azucah Selectah is trying to show the opinion and music from known and unknown artists, and also making sub thematic compilations that reflect a particular style of some Latin American trends, we are trying to show what is happening in Latin America Underground Scene.

We are very proud to present AZUCAH SELECTAH ( Free Download)

A work that drops an amazing selection coming from the eclectic tastes of the Golden Girl of Salsa, Maite Hontele, alongside DJ Mundo from Rebelsounds, and Caballo, all together in a project that attempts to show a new face of Latin music in terms of salsa, not Fania version of Salsa, neither your Orishas or Mixed version..
this is a movement that started growing slow but strongly from late nineties, although only until the end of the last decade emerges fully outside the so called “underground” in Latin America.

We have seen great blogs like The Fader or even DJ Chino’s trying to approach people to this section of the Latin Culture, but it is still very away in terms of what is going on in our latinoamerican streets.

This release will show you a HUGE portion of the sounds that are all over the clubs, although their exposure outside the Latin context remains very limited.

That is the mission of Latino Resiste presents Azucah Selectah;

show how close these Rhythms of pure salsa, Descarga, boogaloo, Latin jazz, Guaguanco, etc. .. are of global trends such as fusion mestiza, drum n ‘bass, dubstep, ska, cumbia, and other genres that are blended in this album and try to push further the true essence of America.

We have pretty much some of the coolest sounds around!!
KING CHANGO, SERGENT GARCIA, Les BABACOOLS, drop their UNRELEASED TUNES!!!
RADIO REBELDE, MAITE HONTELE, SONORA OCHO, LA REPUBLICA, BITUAYA, PEDRO INFAME, DLC SUDSOUND, are just a small portion of the great sounds you will find.

From the fields of Cuba, Dominican Republic or Valle de Cauca there is nothing more precious than sugar cane, that’s where salsa was born, and this is where the best refined sugar in the world.

Salsa is the sugar of Rum, blood of congas, sweat of dancers, the sugar of Latinos!!

The best sugar is called: AZUCAR SELECTA
