Super Guachin + The Echocentrics

So I premiered some new music on the latest edition of One World!

When it comes to digital cumbia, ZZK Records based out of Buenos Aires, Argentina is at the forefront of this sound. Super Gauchin, the latest duo signed to the label with their first release, uses modified video game consoles to uniquely structure their own take on traditonally-rooted cumbia rhythms.

The iconic Southern California-based label, Ubiquity, released a wondrous new EP from cross-cultural instrumental group, the Echocentrics, entitled Echoland: A Tribute to Timbaland. As the title itself dictates, Echocentrics’ front-man Adrian Quesada (also involved with acts such as Ocote Soul Sounds, Grupo Fantasma and Brownout) covers classic hip-hop producer Timbaland productions, particularly using the melt-worthy Brazil-based vocalist Tita Lima in his reinterpretation of the late R&B singer Aaliyah’s timeless song “We Need a Resolution”. RIP babygirl!
