¡Ay dios mío! Our besties over at Colombia’s Polen Records just compiled a pretty hefty and spectacular 10-track compilation for us. So behold the indie soundscape of Polen Records, the label who houses Bomba Estéreo, Sidestepper, Cero39, Mucho Indio, Radio cumbia, and other Colombian musical gems. Here is where electropical and Caribbean fusions thrive to the max, and make the perfect soundtrack to your “end of summer” on this part of the continent.
As most of you await the hotly anticipated album of Bomba Estéreo, we’ll tell you know to not tap your feet to fast in anticipation. We have the first single off the record to give you exclusively. Cero39, the electropidub wonderkind who graced us at this year’s LAMC, gives us a hypnotic ditty off his newest release too. So, keep your eyes pealed for this guy as he’s surely going places. Add into the roster the whispery and magnificent tracks by Los Extramuros and Ella Fuksbrauner, and certainly no less Mitú, Bajotierra, Glasford Howard and Radio Cumbia, you got a pretty damn awesome compilation.
So enter the audioscapes of Polen Records’ sultry, tropical, electro-cumbia, and acoustic world —Remezcla‘s Indie Label of the Month! Yes, download this End Of Summer mix, all for FREE!
