Latino Resiste Presents Salsa Choke

CHOKE promo 1
Salsa Choke (Pronounced Choh- kech) is the newest approach from a whole new generation of Urban Artists to the always expanding Latin Diaspora.

Blending aesthetics from Crunk, Hip Hop, Reggaeton,and latin sounds, with Colombian Afro Pacific music,
the result is a unique approach to Salsa.

Most of the cases sampling Rap anthems and adding their own latin flavour, the result might be as wicked as this one:

Being one of the most underground genres in South America, Salsa Choke style of dancing was
seen by millions when Colombia’s soccer team celebrated every time they scored.
background

Triggering right there an exhaustive expansion for that unique sound.

In order to give the compilation its real credibility, we went straight to the source.

Cali, Colombia.

And asked the most prominent promoters of the genre to curate and select the tracklist.

Dj Marlong (Son & Sabor) who grabbed some of the most dynamics acts from the genre, however it is Marlong’s knowledge and connections that made possible to have access to the core sound.

While Caballo & Jebuke (tropicalia) covered the “less ghetto” approach.

The result is a 10 track album with some of the most relevant acts of the genre, who rarely get covered on the

traditional media, while still combining hundreds of thousands of views in Youtube or thousands of plays in SC.

Not even mentioning packing all the streets of Cali and its surroundings.

This is Marlong and Salsa Choke striking on the streets

With this compilation we also get a come back from the acclaimed graphic designer Afromestiza,
responsible for some of the art of Petronio Alvarez fest or Latin Grammy nominees artcovers.

Caballo & The Mothafu Kings – #ABSURDUS

absurdus back cover

After 2 years. Caballo is back with a whole new album which he decided to go back to his cumbia bass roots and get them to the new bass level.

The actual concept of the album makes it looks spontaneous. However, the album has been crafted to be perceived differently depending on who is listening to it.

If you are European, African, Asian or North American, you will listen to it differently than a Latino will do; however a Colombian will understand it differently as well.

And of course, I know everyone is different.

But what I mean here is the craft in details, they have been put in a way that is open to recognize elements, in a way, many songs will sound extremely close to you as a listener, or totally bass music, depending on where you are from, or how strong your connection with an identity is.

At the same time, songs will be kinda unorthodox, or will be cohesive depending on how many bass genres you listen to.

The album goes for: FREE DOWNLOAD

A way to contextualize this, might be the opening track CULO E VACILE

The album challenges what Cumbia and latin roots are in terms of sounds, but it also has explicit lyrics and organic sounds that complement the sampling process, a lot of the songs you are about to hear, have real drums.

Champeta, Moombahton, Zouk Bass, Dubstep, and Cumbia Bass are the most common genres that will blend into each other.

Chong X and Caballo get together to give a more cumbia-bass, moombahton mashing up Major Lazer & Chupacabras

This is a champeta collab with Molo Diaz, Kinky Electric Noise and Piper Street Band of Sol Okarina’s contacto, which was one of the best indie songs of last year for the Latino spectrum.

Lyrics and Music are really important, so there are tracks that have been designed to be cohesive with the #absurdus manifesto.

There are 3 songs for all the rebels out there: Belief which is a dubstep, This is now the time which is a Dub- Drum n bass and this epic Collab with Colombian Master PERNETT

But for DJS and/or dancefloor appeal there are few tricks in the album as well.. like a dope edit of WOST’s face to face.

Even a cumbia bass direction in a collaboration between Neki Stranac, Caballo, Carnnibal and yes, the epic Ragga twins

The biggest new genre of 2013-4, Zouk Bass, gets a different approach as well in a JSTJR’s Cerveja

Without losing his political focused releases: Absurd is also trying to open the discussion on 3 main elements that unite people from all over the world.

The gap between rich & poor, the tactics politicians do to remain in power, what media filters to manipulate opinion.

All of this, is absurd. It does not have any logic, and still, we are comfortable in this chaos.

Papa con Yuca

001

#yoquieropapaconyuca es un proyecto de unión entre artistas que buscan protestar de forma pacífica y crítica frente a la problemática de nuestros campesinos y el derecho que tenemos todos a defender nuestra tierra, semillas y cultivos. Músicos, artistas visuales, gestores culturales, comunicadores que están convencidos de que la herramienta más importante de transformación es el arte y en una jornada sin precedentes en Colombia se han unido para alzar sus voces convirtiendo el caos en acción, la impotencia en creación y la protesta en belleza.

Este grupo de jóvenes quiere invitarlos a todos a formar parte de este proyecto que le pertenece a cualquiera que esté dispuesto a donar su tiempo, su creatividad y su cariño por la tierra que le ha dado todo: la raíz, la cultura ancestral de siembra, el alimento, una gama infinita de culturas indígenas de las cuales aprender, una tierra rica en cualquier tipo de materia prima natural y miles de cosas más. Y una cosa más: que estas acciones sirvan para ejercitar la cortísima memoria de un país manipulado, ingenuo y sumido en la violencia desde tiempos inmemoriales.
No hay tiempo para cambiar mañana. apoya la causa con el hashtag #yoquieropapaconyuca

SI QUIERE SABER ALGO MAS QUE AUNQUE NO ES DIRECTAMENTE RELACIONADO CON #yoquieropapaconyuca Si tiene CONEXION:

El conflicto agrario en particular me toca a mi (caballo) de manera muy cercana, ya que aunque tuve la fortuna de estudiar en “un lugar privilegiado” durante mi infancia; durante mis vacaciones debido a las dinamicas del trabajo de mi madre, era extraido a el mundo de mis abuelos, quienes vivian en la zona rural de provincia, mas precisamente en Velez, donde se hacia o hace el Bocadillo. Y fue alli donde aprendi la verdadera vida del agro.

No habia otra alternativa sino unirse a los obreros, como se le denominaban a los campesinos contratados para ayudar con una cosecha grande, y fue alli donde aprendi arado, a recoger papa, yuca, arracacha, ahuyama etc etc, Tambien retumba en mi memoria cuando debia levantarme a las 4 a.m. los sabados, para cargar los caballos y/o mulas con los bultos y caminar junto a mi abuela 3 o 4 horas para llegar a la plaza a vender a los “intermediarios” quienes serian los que llevarian en sus camiones la carga a lugares mucho mayores.

Debido a el clima era mas facil y rentable irse a pie con las bestias que dejar enterrado un jeep con toda la carga.

Fui asi como recibi mis primeras lecciones sobre la verdadera dinamica del campo, las injusticias en las que viven por parte de los intermediarios, las industrias, y el desgobierno.

Aunque mis padres, son urbanos, y mis abuelos ya no viven. Este recuerdo siempre estara en mi como algo importante en mi formacion intelectual, donde campesino JAMAS es sinonimo de pobre, ni falto de inteligencia, ni educacion.

Este proyecto papa con yuca me conecta con esa raiz de la cual siento orgullo.

Papaconyuca significa para mi, (talvez mucho mas de lo que significa para algunos de los participantes) una perfecta excusa de mostrar la verdadera cara del Gobierno. No este en particualr. SINO TODOS LOS GOBIERNOS que han destruido a Colombia.

Tuve la grata experiencia de trabajar en el remix oficial

Asi mismo como en un track con el maestro Pernett

Y me uni a los chilenos del sello Konn, y Mauro “Subversivo” Araya quien es un verdadero guerrero que ha recorrido latinoamerica y sus selvas en sus miticos viajes en la busqueda de sonidos que conecten lo indigena con lo contemporaneo, y por ahi sacamos Tierra Malsana:

Rebelsounds & Latino Resiste present CUERO DIGITAL

The wait is over..
This one brings two active and quiet players to hit a knock out nobody expected!

CUERO DIGITAL, a compilation made by the global activists Rebelsounds and Colombia/Canada Latino Resiste label. which gathers some of the most exciting cumbia players since the digital game started!!
And even better it is set as a FREE DOWNLOAD

Cuero Digital is selection of the most innovative Cumbia producers and some banging tracks from pioneers and new players.

The process, of selection, was very simple as there are not any doubts of the legacy from some of the producers in the compilation.

The opening track, brings Global Bass well known, Maga Bo and Cumbia Queen Petrona Martinez.

Present is also Pernett, whose music has influenced pretty much every cumbiahead in the digital era and even been featured in the grammy award Cumbia de los aburridos by Calle 13, he also has been labeled as one of the most significant additions to Colombia’s neo folklore in the last decade.

Alguacil from dub killer combo is also inside, and he is known for being the guy behind the music of Sargento Garcias’ CUMBIAMUFFIN ALL STARS, alongside Jacobo Velez from La Mojarra Electrica.

Dragao, now going solo, is also featured here, and as a world premiere of his new upcoming album, he drops his track “La luz del sol” as well.; The guy is mostly known for being the composer of Papaya Republik’s music and also Cumbia Rockers All Stars.

One of the most innovative producers is Gux Swadharma, for Cuero Digital he reworks Stereo Mcs hit “Connected” and makes it a dancefloor banger, and the tune features the young cantaora Ailin Calderon, who many people say, can be the next Bomba Estereo, with their project, Candela Machine.

Mexican producer Javier Estrada is also present in the compilation, with his sampuesana-step. Sonido Satanas, show how impressive Mexican Cumbia can be in terms of reaching a radio-wise level while keeping a perfect balance between underground, roots and dancefloor intented composition.

Miami’s Kinky Electric Noise, and Germany’s and TropicalBass very own Andres Digital are widely known for being the best cumbia mashupers in the globe.


KEN

And some of the new players like Panela Sound, Dr Guzman, Territorio Comanche, Makina Kandela, or Nahuatl Sound system prove why cumbia is always expanding towards new territories.


Last but not least the ever-shaping Caballo, whose work in pushing cumbia, with cumbia bass beats andsome other cumbia projects landed his Sancocho e’ Tigre release on the hands of Lee Perry’s, Emch, Dubblestandar.. Subatomic Sound System, being the first Digital Cumbia release picked by the iconic Dub, reggae, post dancehall Label.
