The third in a series of releases from the Names You Can Trust label that seeks to update cumbia for modern listeners - this time helmed by Argentinean producer Doctor Stereo. Keeping things rootsy and live-sounding, the good Doctor puts a Latin piano out front over an itchy modern take on that distinctive cumbia rhythm, done this time in a more sequenced, electroid way. Tahira's Afro-Cumbia mix makes greater use of that infectious rhythm, almost resembling a slowed-down techno beat with added funk guitars and bass floating through the mix. A great idea that's nicely rendered over these two tracks.
