DJ: Copia Doble Systema
MIXTAPE: Peligrosa Radio #4
Copia Doble Systema have been around for a while now– they were pioneering ñu-cumbia in Scandinavia back when most DJ’s in the northern hemisphere didn’t know what cumbia was, and they still play it now after the fad has passed for most trend-followers, now with only the reals left standing in the arena.
Of course, they grew and evolved since their early days and incorporated a vast array of tropical third world rhythms to their formula, processing them through their distinctive filter. In this 30-minute-long mixtape they recently put together for our friends at Peligrosa, you’ll find some baile funk beats, tribal guarachero, and kuduro, plus some other alien shit that defies labeling. This is how they do it in the land of the Vikings.
