Arriba Y Lejos

Arriba Y Lejos by Raul Y Mexia
Released: Feb 2013
Label: Nacional Records
Don't know much about what's happening in Latin music today? Start here: Pop, hip-hop, regional, reggaeton and electronic music get mashed up and smashed up into a stew this brother duo calls "cumbia campechana" (a mixed-seafood cocktail). Oh, and it's produced by Toy Selectah (Control Machete pioneer turned 3Ball MTY beat-maker). It's very hip and post-cultural, but, even more importantly, it's extremely listenable. NorteƱo-hop jams like "Solo Para Ti" bounce along lighter than air, and the cumbia-cut reggaeton sounds organic and exciting. It all comes together on "Mis Dias Sin Ti."
