LONG OVERDUE YET PERFECTLY ON TIME

There’s no one funkier nor more lively than the greatly beloved Captain Cumbia! He brings the party and he plays a variety of instruments extremely well. Here he is with his combo performing “Que Calor” in a very vibrant and lively performance. They sound excellent.

✍ OCT 31 2014 – GLOBAL BASS ACCUEILLE CAPTAIN CUMBIA
@ MARSEILLE

Pour leur dixième Global Bass, les teams marseillais Baja Frequencia et Mungo’s Park invite Captain Cumbia. Si le blaze de ce parisien laisse deviner un penchant marqué pour les beats sud-americains au premier rang desquels figure la cumbia sous toutes ses formes et déclinaisons, ce DJ musicien et producteur voit large, mâtinant ses mixes de beats hip-hop, de puissants riddims ragamuffin ou de tourneries balkaniques afin de foudroyer son public sur le dancefloor.

SAME AS IT EVER WAS

The free internet also helps me in my job. My job involves finding dope tracks like this one from Captain Cumbia. Over in Paris this dude is mixing cumbia with Balkan flavors which is a growing style I’ve happily been witnessing. This is a perfect marriage of this approach http://generationbass.com/2012/01/21/sexxy-saturday-cumbia-same-as-it-ever-was

ATTACK OF THE BATICHICA

The last thing I’m going to leave you with is a new Captain Cumbia edit. Normally I would normally be a little reluctant with posting a remix of Clint Eastwood (because it’s played out to me) but Captain Cumbia reignited my love for it. This is a really deep and cool remix and edit. It’s full of nice surprises. You’ve got to listen to it!

ST PATRICK’S DAY

Could it be done? A St. Patrick’s Day cumbia? Well of course that’s what Nu Cumbia Experience is all about. Anything is possible in the world of nu cumbia. That said I never imagined or even thought of remixing the St. Patrick’s Day holiday however someone did. None other than the great captain Captain Cumbia ! I was about to jump right into the spring season but I must hold back. Not only is my fair city cooling way down (upper 50 degrees Fahrenheit which is a great deal for us) but the intense drinking holiday is upon us. St. Patrick’s Day is odd over here due to the weather transition when I’m in constant battle with my central heating system in my home (turn it on, turn it off, adjust the temp, cold at night, hot in the day). This is the time of transition when all are beginning to pick up the slack in their local gyms trying to fight off the extra pounds for the coming summer months. Let us take a moment now to drink to our hearts content (or until we pass out) with the new Captain Cumbia remix. The remix is also relevant to the transitioning season. It’s Irish Cumbia Dancehall !

CUMBIA MASHUP POR EL DERECHO A SER FELICES

El maestrísimo Captain Cumbia, del cual ya habíamos hablado en alguna ocasión en nuestro bloque cumbiero, desde París nos cuenta más clarito quien es y en que proyectos anda: “Captain Cumbia es Dj, músico y productor. El Tropikal Desperados de Paris. Es un especialista de la Cumbia bajo todas sus formas. En su laboratorio cumbiero se divierte mezclando, remezclando y mashupeando estilos como la chicha peruana, la cumbia colombiana, mexicana, villera (de Argentina) con otros estilos, como la música klezmer, balkanica, ethio groove, hip hop, ragga, etc. En vivo, propone un Dj set a medio camino a el “live”, acompañado de su micrófono, su melódica y su güiro y la selecta de sus remixes, creaciones originales y tracks tradicionales de la cumbia mundial. Actualmente se encuentra trabajando en el estudio de grabación, preparando el que será su nuevo álbum con su Eastern Orkestra (teclado, clarinete, guitarra, bajo y batería).
Aquí debajo de la imagen gráfica de Captain Cumbia les compartimos un .zip con varios de sus tracks, y algunas piezas en soundcloud para que puedan escuchar desde ya. http://www.cassetteblog.com/2012/01/cumbia-mashup-por-ser-felices
