Cumbia Tech: the evolution of Cumbia according to El Dusty – or if you prefer his formal name – DJ Dus. This electronic mastermind is a member of Texas’ Peligrosa, which is a collective of DJs, producers, VJs, and photographers, who are redefining the sound of parties nationwide. Blending elements of Latin, Electronic, Indie, Soul, and HipHop, El Dusty and his crew consistently explore combinations of rhythms and sounds that have been largely untouched to date.
DJ Dus’ single “K Le Pasa” has taken the Cumbia sound of older generations and decked it out with the new-school electronic production of the Latin millennial. The result is magnificent; from the drunken-sound of a staggering accordion to the wall-vibrating fervor of an all-out electro-cumbia rave, the only moment of clarity is when the merengue band stops by approximately two minutes into the song. This track extends an invitation to everybody, so grab your headphones and have a listen!
