Sabo & Cassady "Kuff Kumbia"
From Sol Selectas label head and NYC Latin-beat enthusiast Sabo, "Kuff Kumbia," created with the help of friend Cassady, finds the DJ/producer trading his usual house-friendly musical styles for more of a dancehall-meets-cumbia sound. The release from which this track is pulled, Bersa Discos #6, contains more remixes and re-edits of upbeat grooves from the worlds of cumbia, Colombian folk music, and merengue, and is Sabo's first release on the burgeoning West Coast label. (For more on Bersa Discos, check out our recent Labels We Love feature.) Thankfully, his switched-up style sounds as natural and well-worn as the indigenous music the producer culls his inspiration from. Release parties for Bersa Discos #6 are happening on both coasts—this Saturday in San Francisco and next Thursday in New York. Check out all the details here.
