O BRUXO

Here’s a little memo from our dear amigo Sam Humans…

“OK kids, it’s time for the O Bruxo debut show, this Sat at Langano Lounge! ..O Bruxo is my new project with long-time collaborators JMunny Johnson of Gulls and Evolutionary Jass Band and Papi Fimbres ofpaper/upper/cuts. Throw low-end time keeper Scott Blais into the mix with our twin guitar/twin drum, trumpet,flute, organ attack, and we’ve learned to bring the psychedlic cumbia sonic fury to new heights. You might even dance. Jesse’s trusty boombox dropped by a practice session a few months ago and recorded a sample, which you can find at myspace.com/obruxopdx.”

Ive been infected with the digital cumbia bug sice hearing the Bersa Discos DJ’s while on tour in SF in 2007.. Since then ive scoured the web far and wide for these new dubby tropical sounds. And hands down the grittiest, bangingest most memorable productions come from the hand of the man–>> EL HIJO DE LA CUMBIA. gracias para la musica!

“Boomarmin” – BOOMARM SUPER MIX-vol1 by BoomArmNation
WHAT IS IT??— For the jump off celebration of this exploration in blogging as a form of sonic community building. We looked to a local crew of PDX sonic pushers. dropped a folder of cumbia and dancehall flavored loops into there inboxes. And challenged them to make a 40-60 second mix/version inspired or drawn from the loops. The 15 mixes received were spun by myself (JMJ Gigante / Gulls) into a tropical flavored PDX mix. Its a 12 and a half minute ride of serious grooves , bass drops, glitch, and heavy sonic spaces… Mad thanks and props to the participant PDX boomarm family!

THE LOOPS– To give you some context.. here are the loops that each artist recieved as a base for there constructions.

The frist is a loop taken from the song “La Samaria” by Colombia’s Orquestra Nunez- From the fantastic SoundWays compilation
“COLOMBIA! THE GOLDEN AGE OF DISCO FUENTES
.

BOOM CLICK>> CUMBIA LOOP

The second is a Dancehall/Grime inspired riddem from Gigante’s sampler…..

BOOM CLICK>> RIDDIM LOOP

I just want to put it out there that BOOMARMnation is gaining momentum!

This is the first of many many audio posts to come!!

—- “BOOMARM family TELETHON!” - a mash up banger release exclusive to this site of 12 portland musicians remixng and reinventing a blend of cumbia and heavy dancehall bass! yes. its fire!
…….the deets :.. I sent out a package of loops to my closest audio twisting friends, complied of a classic cumbia columbiana riff, and a bass heavy dancehall beat. each musican is asked to use the loops as fuel for re-mixl fuel. And creates a short 40second track. once the tracks are compiled they will be sewn toghether to create a seemless rollercoaster of a mix. …suitable for wylin out, mowwin the grass, or cooking up some steaks to.

stay tooned. –JMJ
