Chico Sonido "Cumbia Del Licenciado"
- Words: Chris Kokiousis
- Label: Latin Lover
Born in Mexico and based in Los Angeles, DJ/producer Chico Sonido has long been a fixture of the SoCal underground, spreading his Latin-infused bass music as a resident of local party/collective Freak City. With "Cumbia Del Licenciado"—taken from his forthcoming Nalga Bass LP for Latin Lover (out on October 15)—Chico explores cumbia's main-stage club potential, filtering Mexican melodies through gleaming synth presets that demand the listener's attention. And once the illicit, call-and-response vocal samples drop into the mix, locked in step with the tight rhythmic cadence, the meaning of "nalga" should be obvious.
