A man after my own heart, mixed live in a one-take fashion, he presents to us his mix,“TRASH IN THE BASSMENT” VOL 5, of his critically acclaimed series and here’s what he says:
“Paying particular tribute to DJ Umb and Vince the Prince’s fantastic blog Generation Bass, I’ve put together a special global edition of dutty sounds from below the belt, highlighting nascent Latin American genre Cumbia. Raising the Cumbia flag are artists/DJ’s such as DJ/Rupture (Cumbia feature via The Fader), Toy Selectah, Sonido Del Principe, El Hijo De La Cumbia, Uproot Andy, Dutty Artz crew, DJ Vamanos, Ghislain Poirier, Schlactofbronx, and many more……………..The mix is done using 2 Technics 1210 MKII’s, a Pioneer DJM-400, and Traktor Scratch”.

I’ve had a lot of questions, mainly by girls, how to dance to CUMBIA. Well, first of all, just let your heart guide your hips and get hypnotised by the rhythm. But if that won’t give you any results, check out these great videos. Not only great music, but smooth dancing as well!
mmm, and the silly dress-up like in that last one? mmm… dont.

This tune is so utterly catchy, it has been stuck in my head for almost 2 weeks now… the only way to exorcise that shit is just CUMBIAFIYING it! Check out my dub of last year (well, actually the year BEFORE that even..) biggest club dub banger…

This is one of the best blogs that I’ve stumbled across got tipped by the awesome WAYNE & WAX via TWITTER in recent history. Loads of cumbia and CHICHA gems from way back when. We are talking true record collector stuff here. You need to go to this blog, bookmark it and take a close listen to all the really great music that’s on it. It’s called SUPER SONIDO!
check out this GEM right here man: CHICKEN Y SUS COMANDOS – CUMBIA SAMPUESANA
In the words of the man himslef: SONIDO FRANKO:
“For the last 10 years or so I have had this chronic addiction/sickness called “record collecting”. This disease rapidly progressed into djing, partying, having a crew, owning a very small record label, and having a fucking fun time. Common symptoms included breaking hearts, getting my heart broken, damaging my liver, hanging out with awesome people, hanging out with losers, hanging out until 5 am, djing to a full house, djing to an empty house, getting on planes, letting my day job go down the toilet, and buying shit piles of Latin records & 45’s to point where I was completely overwhelmed. It got to the point where I had so many records, I didn’t know a thing about the musicians that made all these songs.
Maybe an audio blog is a like a 12 step program for this behavior, maybe it is a way to clarify. Or maybe it seems like the next logical step of this ailment. I don’t know? But what I do know is that I have an extensive collection of Latin American music that I love, a collection which would be my pleasure to share with you, and an outlet to focus on my writing. Yet I have to be totally honest with you though, in the last 2 to 3 years the Latin genre of music has been totally hot stuff. So sometimes I question why I am creating this audio blog. Is it to fill some sort of void? Is it to jump on a bandwagon? Is it the right time to do this or not? Or am I just being lame? I have no diagnosis for those questions, i’ll just let the words and music speak for themselves…”
