hola chico’s and chica’s!
coming Thursday we host a special MAXIMA cumbia night at the OT301, oye que super!!!
with very special guest straight outta Argentina:
El Hijo de la Cumbia (The Son of Cumbia)
Just 24 years of age, this talented producer comes to Amsterdam for the first time ever!
El Hijo de la Cumbia aka Emilliano Gomez hails from the San Martin area of Buenos Aires and started his musical career in 1996. From that moment on, he took part in several Argentine Cumbia music bands. In 2000, he started listening to other musical genres originating in ghettos from all across the world, such as Reggae, Dancehall, Hip Hop, Jazz, Dub, etc. Very much influenced by Colombian Cumbia music, he then decided to experiment by mixing Colombian rhythms with African ones and new styles. Known as a Sonidero producer for Mexican and American bands, he has worked in the most important Mexican and US music scenes. There, he made his remixes which were quite peculiar back in the day, with a clear inclination towards dub. El Hijo de la Cumbia aims at showing that all African rhythms can be respectfully mixed, that music overcomes all language barriers, and that music is not there for us to simply dance and listen to, but also for us to let our imagination fly and feel free.
DJ Saxixa (Paises Bajos, Worm)
fresh from the porteno city of Rotterdam and the creative force behind WORM. He will spice up the night with his special record collection from allover South America. Expect old & new cumbia’s from Paraguay, Argentinia, Colombia, Peru and beyond….
Rebel Up! DJ’s (FR/BE)
during the night our faithfull global duo crew will add greasy and spicy sounds for a mishmash of cumbia and dubby latino spheres.
VJ Normal Con Alas (AR)
