Ghetto Kumbe Clubbing Remixes (New 2LP)Ghetto Kumbe
Label: ZZK Records
ZZK Records Presents 'Ghetto Kumbé Clubbing Remixes'.
There’s no denying the power of the drum. It’s primal, it cuts across borders and most importantly, it makes you want to move.
Ghetto Kumbé don’t just understand that—they celebrate it, and it’s why the tambor was at the heart of the Bogotá-based trio’s 2020 self-titled debut album. Rooted in mysticism and the Afro-Caribbean rhythms they’d grown up with all their lives, the critically acclaimed LP thrillingly updated the traditional Latin template, folding in elements of modern hip-hop, house and bass music while also delivering a transportive Afro-futurist vision.
On Clubbing Remixes, that vision has been further amplified, as Ghetto Kumbé—who were already one of Colombia’s most prominent alternative acts—have now gone fully global; enlisting an all-star roster of artists from four different continents, they’ve put together a fresh version of their debut album that’s been specifically geared to the world’s diverse slate of dancefloors.
