Los Miticos Del Ritmo - out on Soundway Records

After the Hip Hop En Cumbia EP of covers released last summer on Tru Thoughts Recordings and the Original Sound of Cumbia compilation released last december on Soundway, Will 'Quantic' Holland keeps on surprising his worldwide fans with a 60s sounding Cumbia album that's not to be missed if your ears don't have any problem with the sound of the accordion. The Queen cover Another One Bites The Dust is the minor disappointment here, sounding like a copy of Weird Al Yankovic's Another Rides The Bus from the early 80s. But the three other covers will please all novelty music lovers: The Abyssinians' Satta Massagana dressed into Satta Massa Cumbia is marvelous dub-cumbia, Michael Jackson's Don't Stop Til You Get enough should put a smile on all listening faces, and the lesser-known Gildardo Montoya's Fabiola should fill all global dancefloors instantly, as would the utterly groovy originals Willy's Merengue and Cumbia De Mochilla. One thing's for sure, Soundway Records know how to release incredibly-designed record sleeves. One look at their newest release, Los Miticos Del Ritmo (meaning 'The Mythics of Rhythm'), should indeed intrigue most music lovers. A Chinese dragon, an Indian snake, two firebirds, two accordions, two scorpions, a speaker and a latin band name: if you've managed to guessed that this is analog neo-retro Cumbia from Quantic and a studio band of Colombian musicans living in Cali, then you're a medium!
