Argentina-based DJ collective Zizek Urban Beats Club wowed North American audiences last month when the crew traveled North and delivered an aural education on the finer details of the cumbia sound.
Further lessons on the group’s trademark musical style are soon to follow, namely, in the form of Zizek’s second release, ZZK Sound Vol. 2.
Nacional will release the record on June 23, and if Vol. 1, which dropped in 2008, was all about showcasing cumbia outside Argentina’s borders, Vol. 2 brings the music home and focuses on what’s happening within that country, with tracks from both natives and relocated ex-pats. Remixes by the likes of Ghislain Poirier, El Remolon, and Douster complete the release.
