The nice thing about the internet is that the turnaround time is like .001 seconds on basically anything ever. When we got turned on to Shawn Reynaldo and Oro11's awesome upstart cumbia label Bersa Discos we asked dudes if they'd be down to make a mix of new and old cumbia for us, and now, like seven minutes later or something, we have the mix—for you, for us, for everyone. You can buy the first in a series of 12-inches from the label here.
If that is still not enough cumbia for you, Reynaldo and Oro11 are continuing their Tormenta Tropical parties with FADER pal DJ/Rupture, as well as Argentinian cumbia producers King Coya & El Trip Selector, Axel K Soundsystem, Tremor, Frikstailers and El Remolón, next Saturday, March 8th at Mezzanine (444 Jessie) in San Francisco.
