Dos Santos Anti-Beat Orquesta rocks the sounds of pan-Latin American cumbia. Their gritty, grassroots approach captures the “golden age” of streamlined, tight-knit ensembles that shook sweatbox dance floors with raw and fierce energy throughout Latin America in the 1970s—honest dance music with no frills and no fear, anchored by piercing guitars, garage organs, and straight-ahead percussive might.
Cumba Mela is an international music collective that explores the boundless world of global bass. Blending a colorful array of international genres and music traditions such as: nueva cumbia, kuduro, samba, afro-latin bass, dubstep, electro, baile funk, balkan-brass, and more.
Atropolis = 100% original material from a city who has pioneered the tropical/global bass/world music 2.0 sound with Dutty Artz Brooklyn party series, where they showed the world that the crazy mash of cultures in NYC had evolved a counterpart for the cosmopolitan dancefloor, where the crowd was as mixed-up as the music.
