New South American Bass Label ‘Frente Bolivarista’ Release Debut Compilation| 28 January, 2015
Last week we knew nothing about Frente Bolivarista. This week, well we still don’t know very much, except for the fact they’ve just put out a killer album of tropical bass, digital cumbia and Andean electronica featuring some of our favourite producers.
There’s the heavy baile of Rio’s Leo Justi, Romperayo’s insistent Colombian grooves, blissful beats from Argentina’s SidiRum, electronic ramblings from Psilosamples (from Pouso Alegre, Brazil), fragmented tribal funk from Mexico’s Borchi, as well as the Andean folktronica of El Búho. It’s always great to see a compilation that shows no boundaries between the Portuguese and Spanish-speaking countries of South America and that’s one thing that Frente Bolivarista Vol. 1 gets right (as well as picking a killer selection of tracks too, obviously!)
You can buy/listen to Frente Bolivarista Vol. 1 below. Find out more about Frente Bolivarista at frentebolivarista.bandcamp.com
