Zach Bezold’s Creatividad Verano Mix 2012

By 29 June, 2012

Here’s a great new mixtape focusing on melodies and rhythms from all over South America, with a few African selections included too. Creatividad (Verano Mix 2012) was put together by Zach Bezold, who also happens to be a contributor for Sounds and Colours, but rest assured we’re showing no bias here. This is a great mixtape for the summer featuring quality tracks from the likes of Criolo, Batida, Los Wembler’s de Iquitos, Quantic, Chico Trujillo and many more.

Here’s Zach explaining the mix: “Summer is here! Enjoy it with some mellow world grooves. On the beach, in a park, at the state fair, get outside and play kids! Sweet rhythms for a sexy summer afternoon!” So, all that’s left to do is listen. Check it out:
