Freestyle De Ritmos by El Hijo De La Cumbia
Released: Sep 2008
Label: Soot
This Argentinean DJ is at the forefront of the digital cumbia movement, but El Hijo's style stands out among his peers. Though equally influenced by hard-edged cumbia villera and more experimental electronica (as well as dub and hip-hop), El Hijo strikes the middle path, keeping things sonically interesting but nearly always danceable. The balancing act makes for an incredibly enjoyable release. He manages a neat trick: making Mexico's favorite feel-good music palatable to urban hipsters who secretly crave it.
