Latest news »Totó La Momposina New Remixes Released
DJ, musician and remixer, Rob Smith (RSD), best known for making and playing breakbeat, drum & bass and dubstep, and as half of the duo Smith & Mighty (with Ray Mighty) provides the Bristol connection with his remixes.
Bogotá-based Richard Blair - from the band Sidestepper - retains the earthy Colombian sound of the traditional African-influenced drums and adds his own dub twist.
"I love the energy and 'upfulness' of the original track and wanted to retain the percussive dynamics in the first remix while adding a 'dub' feel even though it's not a reggae track," explains Rob Smith (RSD).
Adios Fulana is taken from Tambolero. Released in June 2015, the album is a recreation of La Candela Viva, a classic record from 1993, and Totó's most successful album worldwide that introduced many, including Colombians, to this music for the first time.
