Corpus Christi, Texas, has a well-guarded secret that is becoming more difficult to keep with every passing day. You might have heard this secret in passing, or perhaps you even saw him in concert when he was touring as DJ for Baby Bash and Frankie J. Since we’re known more for making noise than keeping secrets, go ahead and prepare your music player for the sounds of El Dusty, or DJ Dus if you prefer his formal name.
If there is one word you should associate with Señor Dusty, it is Cumbia-Tech. We first introduced you to this new phenomenon (which he pretty much invented) in our earlier post for the video “K Le Pasa,” where we described it as “the cumbia sound of older generations” mixed with the “new school electronic production of the Latin millennial.” Today’s exclusive download, courtesy of DJ Dus himself, is titled “Cumbioso” and comes from his unique album Soy Yo! DJ Dus: Turn Me Up Kid!, which can be purchased in full on his bandcamp page for a mere $5.
Why download this track? Well for one thing, it starts with an infectious beat that mixes the steady shuffle of cumbia with a bass-pounding techno kick, both paving the way for the entrance of the sounds of their respective genres. This track is evolution in the making, the best of the new and old schools. One moment you are humming along to the catchy Latin horn melody, only to suddenly find yourself dancing to the mix of hip-hop, cumbia, and techno rhythms. I argue that this song containts elements that will interest just about anybody, regardless of musical preference. Enjoy the free download and let us know your thoughts below. You can share your thanks with El Dusty on Facebook or Twitter.
