Head over to RCRDLBL to get an exclusive tune from the new cumbia / cumbia digital compilation, put together by the deepest digger we know, Sonido Martines!

Los Destellos – Elsa (Sonido Martines remix feat Fefe)

the jam in question is Sonido himself remixing legendary Peruvian chicha cumbia band, Los Destellos de Enrique Delgado, with remix assistance by Fefe, a Brazilian firecracker on the mic. In one example of how Sonido Martines works, he tracked down Los Destellos, explained to them what was going on in the slippery world of ‘new cumbia’, and with their blessings got permission to flip this remix. Now-thing realness with respect for the foundational musicans!

the comp esta muy wapoSonido Martines presents: Nueva Cumbia Argentina! fresh heat from nu-skoolers like El Hijo de la Cumbia, Fauna, and Chancha Via Circuito, and visionary early material from DJ Taz and Damas Gratis, and more! 12″ and digital out now: iTunes / Amazon / Boomkat, etc. K VIVA LA KUMBIA!!

  1. Hi, I’ve just purchased the Sonido Martines compilation (on in .wav and it sounds absolutely terrible! The sound quality is really dodgy. I downloaded “Para Bailar” somewhere else for free in 192 kbps mp3 and sounds much better than the .wav from this website…There must be something wrong!

    I’d like to play these tunes out loud but that is impossible with this quality!

    I’d also like to buy that La Yegros release but I can’t really find it anywhere except websites that don’t allow orders from the Czech Republic.

    I’m kind of cumbia-frustrated.
    If there’s anyone who could help me, hit me up on
