Guest Mix: Almondos – Cumbia and Other Tales

Armondos Cumbia

We’ve recently been concerned that 500MH hasn’t really been delivering on the Tropical side of our musical manifesto…particularly the current digital styles.

Well, those concerns can now be swept aside, in the form of a short-but-perfectly-formed mix from Almondos taking in digital cumbia, balkan beats, gypsy sounds and digital dub.

Currently laid low with a broken leg (from which we wish him a speedy recovery), Almodos kindly put together this 38 minute blast of Tropical heat, just for us/you…

1. John Henry (Thornato Remix) – Harry Belafonte
2. El Ritmo (feat Deuce Eclipse & Caipo of Bang Data) – J Boogie’s Dubtronic Science
3. Bogle – Mungo’s Hi Fi
4. K Le Pasa (So Shifty Remix) – El Dusty
5. Cumbia Salvaje (J Boogie Instrumental) – Empressarios
6. 2 Sips & Magic (feat. The New York Gypsy Allstars) – Nickodemus
7. Move It – Balkan Beat Box
8. Dem Can’t Stop We From Talk feat. Jahdan (Bleepolar Remix) – Anthony B
9. Hold Me (Quincey Jointz Remix) – jazz.K.lipa feat. Soom T

Almondos sent the mix over via Soundcloud, so rather than waste time re-uploading elsewhere, we decided to share it from there (in the unlikely event you haven’t done this before, just press the downward-pointing arrow to download):

One the many nice things about the Almondos approach is that links are always supplied to buy the tracks…so this is where you need to go to get your Tropical fix:
