Musical labels are funny things sometimes. A case in point is Cumbia, the ever-familiar tropical rhythm from Latin America and the Reggaeton beat found in the Caribbean. Both have more in common than they might like to believe. Here Xikano presents the sixth instalment in his series that aims to highlight the similarities between the two. There are eight jams to get into here, with highlights including the hypnotic loops and gunshot samples of "Cumbia Bun It", the Afrobeat/carnival fusion of "Priceless Cumbia (Tempo Riddim)" and the accordion sampling sunny dancehall vibes of "Tempo Riddim 2017 (Cumbia version)".
