DJ/Rupture’s Cumbia Cumbia Mix| 19 March, 2014
This mix is what DJ/Rupture calls “cumbia cumbia, not nueva cumbia” and dates back to last year, when it was exclusively released in the Tacos Zaragoza Mexican restaurant in New York’s East Village. DJ/Rupture – a hugely influential NY-based producer and DJ affiliated with the Dutty Artz crew – has finally made the mix available online, and it has certainly made our day, especially as it offers a different take on the cumbia mixtape.
Here’s Rupture to explain what the mix is all about:
I used all cumbias purchased in Brooklyn , so it skews heavily towards cumbias poblanas, mexican cumbias, tunes made in the States. Shoutouts include: Queens, Brooklyn, the Bronx, New Jersey, Virginia, Baltimore, Las Carolinas, Ellay… kinda functions as a map of where Mexicans are strong in the US! There’s no tracklist but that’s OK because everyone is always shouting out their name anyhow…
