Cabeza Netlabel has been releasing some of the dopiest digital cumbia artists for a long time now. Actually Cabeza was one of if not the first digital cumbia label I got into when I first started exploring the “genre” (I put quotes because of the strong minded cumbieros have different opinions about this matter).
Cherman is the leader of the label and a good producer and web designer as well. The nu cumbia community is fortunate to have someone like him pushing out these great releases. One in particular I will called Qechuaboi I will post about now.
Upon discussion with Cherman I found that Qechuaboi programs beats on his Korg Electribe sampler which in my opinion is the best Korg sampler out there. He mixes in his digital cumbia with the beats making a unique sound. Living in Barcelona and Peru I can hear the different influences that make up his sound but I’m not saying his sound is limited to those regions. It has no limits as in my opinion no music does.
Here are some of his older tracks released on Cabeza Netlabel.
Here is his newer production featuring the Korg Electribe mixed with chicha roots music.
Leaving the chicha these next ones go more futuristic while still keeping old school with the rhythms.
Now on to the newest for last a collaboration with Cherman.
UPDATE: Cherman and Qechuaboi released this new one after this post went out. But here it is now.
