Chris Read – Disco Cumbia / Ritmos Colombianos: Fat City Record of the Week!

I’m pleased to announce that my new single ‘Disco Cumbia’ / ‘Ritmos Colombianos’ is now available and has already been picked up by Fat City as their Record of the Week. Info and audio previews appear below. You can purchase this single via mail order from Fat City here.

Side A: Disco Cumbia

From the Breakin’ Bread Press Release:

‘Disco Cumbia’ is disco tempo cut of Latin flavour to get the crowd going. Effortlessly fusing funky hard hitting disco drums with Cumbia rhythms and a touch of Batacuda, the track delivers the atmosphere of the street party with a distinctly traditional vibe. A captivating bass groove, catchy vocal hooks, attention grabbing horns and the underlying sound of the carnival spirit make this a well rounded fusion of traditional and modern Latin styles.


Side B: Ritmos Colombianos

From the Breakin’ Bread Press Release:

Neatly complimenting its A Side counterpart, ‘Ritmos Colombianos’ takes a similar Cumbia backdrop and applies it to a loose drum heavy mid-tempo B-Boy rhythm that is no less effective on the dancefloor. Again utilising the bass groove as its driving force, carnival whistles, funky brush drums and horn stabs all make an appearance in the mix. A regular appearance in Chris’s DJ sets for the last year, this track has tried and tested dancefloor credentials.
