This section is the complete archive (work in progress) of all the tracks from my Generation Bass -Sexxy Saturday Cumbia blog.
The first day on the job! I wanted to make a big splash. I was actually quite nervous.
The second post is always a big test.
Especially considering my first post went over quite well
I remember I was in Vegas the week before
this post and I saw Stephen Marley in concert. I
wanted to bring to the blog the similarities of cumbia
and reggae and how well they flowed together.
To show my strong support of my many friends
in Mexico involved with Fiestas Pirata, I dedicated
my first exclusive topic post to their hard work.
This came to me after an incredibly painful week
when I had a migraine that lasted for 4 or 5 consecutive
days. I remember writing this within 2 hours of my deadline.
This post was based around artists, DJ’s and producers
that I felt deserved more recognition for their talents.
I was excited to be able to promote Oscilador’s newest
album. He’s a good friend and very creative producer.
This one was my most poorly received post. I have to admit
it did bother me that I received a bit of poor reviews due
to there not being a lot of chicha on it. I made the mistake
of not approaching this post properly and made it misleading.
The part 1 was more psychedelic while part 2 was more chicha.
The follow up post however redeemed myself as it explained
the lack of chicha in the 1st part. Though mind you the tracks
on both parts are all excellent.
WEPA! I interviewed Will Eede about the guys in the
great white north and they’re unique contributions
to nu cumbia. These guys are brilliant!
I was surprised when I stumbled upon Abel (Digital) Torres.
His music, his art and his social projects are all top notch.
This was also my most shared post of all time.
I got to quote my favorite comedian Louis CK on this one.
I was pointing out to simply be bored in this universe, this
planet even is absurd.
I was expressing my contempt for mainstream top 40
and pointing out great underground talent I get to write
about. I also stumbled upon a brilliant live nu cumbia band
Fishing for a way to involve my tremendous obsession
with economics, I first brought the global crisis in on this one.
My first El Grito Dia de la Independencia with
Generation Bass. This was also the week when
I was fired from my night club job.
Asagi Saundo’s tracks were the inspiration behind this post.
He takes a very sci-fi approach to his nu cumbia productions.
This was one of those annoying weeks where I struggled to find
a topic to write about. Fortunately it was around the autumn equinox.
The season gave me a sliver of an idea.
Oh man this was based upon my realization that I was no
longer required to subject myself to horrible top 40 music.
I was pleased to have an outlet to pay my respects for Steve Jobs.
Steve Jobs plays a major role in most of Generation Bass’
reader’s and talent’s lives.
Another major privilege of mine is to be able to review
not only up and coming acts but also rather big acts.
Fauna and several others on ZZK’s label are quite huge.
This one is definitely heavier into economic theory if you will.
I am a supporter of Ludwig Von Mises Austrian Economics.
When I can connect strong theories and views into the nu cumbia
genre one can count on me to do so.
A writer from the U.S. must produce a piece for Halloween.
You also can certainly count on it next year.
I have very strong views on immigration and human rights.
Paying respect to my predecessor Canalh was an honor.
My first appearance of my usual holiday anxiety is evident.
Ah the frustrations of developing a cool underground music night
here in Phoenix.
Depression and stress was a big factor during this post. It was a great
opportunity for me to pay respect to the sad brilliance of one of
my heroes Lenny Bruce.
Showing my love and affinity for down tempo.
Testing my limits for content from my editors at Generation Bass,
I went strong with this one about government spending on foolish
nonsense under the guise of “defense.”
Ah yes of course the holiday one.
Synthetic opioid influence combined with the Taoist philosophy
creates an excellent new years resolution.
A strong account of my revelation of being a privileged writer
of cumbia, a style of music unpopular by most people of my
race, dominates this theme.
I found it considerably quite difficult to focus on anything but
my recent (at the moment of writing this post) diagnoses of
stage two hypertension. I was and still am very appreciative
of all those that comforted me with their support.
Stopping SOPA and PIPA showed the power and influence
of a government for the people by the people in action. I
used the governments behavior during the beginning of
the industrial revolution to aid in our opposition.
Once again I brought Canalh back to Generation Bass in
celebration of his re-edit of his incredibly popular mixtape.
Finally with much pleasure I posted about the legendary
Original Batichica. Also I recounted my GOP convention adventure.
I pointed out how the definite longevity of nu cumbia makes it
of the ruling class in the underground music scene.
Civil rebellion in Greece, the future of the EU, the warning for
the rest of us, and the bull behind ADD were the elements
combined for the theme of this post.
Talked about my wisdom teeth removal as well as this actual site.
Hipster Irony, True Cool, Hall and Oates
