DJ Orion "Ritmo de Juventud (Orion Edit)"
Texas has long been a hotbed for DJs and producers messing about with cumbia and other Latin rhythms, and DJ Orion has carved himself a niche right in the thick of it. The former Yo Majesty tour DJ and leader of the Austin-based Peligrosa blog/party just unveiled Carajo Colombia, a collection of his own remixes and edits of classic cumbias and other Latin jams. "Ritmo de Juventud" finds Orion slicing up accordion riffs and slapping them down over a fiesty B-more beat—Carajo Colombia is loaded with these kinds of heaters, and the whole thing is available for free download. New Yorkers should also take note that Orion has left the warm confines of Austin this week, as he'll be spinning at the always-banging Que Bajo?! party with Uproot Andy on Thursday night at Santos Party House.
