There is so much music in this world, its really a shame that we don’t get to hear more of it more often. Like foods and costumes, roots music defines its peoples, tells its stories and gives listeners an inside view to the pulse of the people. You listen to samba, and you can imagine what it would feel like to be at carnival, you hear African drums and you want to move to that beat.
Thankfully, I’m not the only person out there who thinks that the world needs more world music. DJ Umb and his partner Vincent Koreman chose the tracks which will be featured on the album. “By utilizing influences from Cumbia to Balkan- Chinese to Indian- Middle Eastern to Japanese- the songs on this unique collection represent the cutting edge vanguard of a whole new electronic sub-genre” said a representative of Generation Bass. Its a rare chance to see a clash of two cultures that ends peacefully, if not beautifully.
So if all you ever listen to is “robot noise” dubstep, or maybe you’re just looking for something a little different than what you get ever other day, check out the preview songs below, and get ready to purchase the album when it comes out tomorrow, and make sure you come out to the release party on Feb. 6th during DOWN @ Bar Black
