Electro-Jarocho by Sistema Bomb
Released: Apr 2012
Label: Sistema Bomb
Every so often, you encounter an album that just sweats cool, and Sistema Bomb's debut has just that sheen to it. A "trans-border" project created by American DJs collaborating with artists playing traditional music, Electro-Jarocho does what it says: maps the Afro-Mexican folk style son jarocho (the basis for "La Bamba," among others) onto a spacey, shimmery electro-landscape. Working with fellow border-transgressors like Ozomatli ("El Cascabel"), la Sistema balances hip beats (dub, funked-up cumbia) with a clear respect for their musical history. Don't miss "Butaquito"'s trippy folklorico.
