It took a minute, but the most bad-ass & influential young cumbia producer is out & loose in Europe for the next 2 months.
El Hijo de la Cumbia got his start producing for big Mexican sonidero groups; I still find CDs out here in Brooklyn with his beats on them.
He’s since gone solo and when we played together in Mexico City is was pretty amazing, insane remixes and edits of his own bombs, plus all sort of deep-reach cumbia jams that had us kumbia nerds in jawdrop mode.
