de Lacey’s Digital Cumbia Mixtape

By | 25 August, 2014

From cumbia’s modest beginnings in Colombia, its influence has now stretched across the majority of South America. The sound of “Digital Cumbia” is a relatively new beast, with the primary sites of production now being Lima, Peru and Buenos Aires, Argentina. Its combination of cumbia and chicha rhythms with Miami Bass/Moombahton synth work have set the clubs on fire, with acts such as Dengue Dengue Dengue! making huge steps in recent years. This mix encompasses music primarily from – but not exclusively – these bustling new scenes in Lima and Buenos Aires, and gives a snapshot of what you can expect to hear on the dance floor this summer.
