Some of you might have heard today’s WNYC article Argentinian Club Music Hits New York. It’s about Zizek, the Buenos Aires club party that’s touring the US right now. The music is all based around taking traditional cumbia sounds and mixing them with modern genres like hip-hop, electro, glitch, trance, and whatever else they can cook up. The sound is pretty nice, and you can download a free tour sampler of mp3s (zipped) from the Whats Up Buenos Aires website.
