New music from El Remolon via the pioneering digi-cumbia label, ZZK, from Buenos Aires. Selva, marks El Remolon’s 5th release and features great collaborations with Lido Pimienta, Ali Gua Gua from the Kumbia Queers, Miss Bolivia, Iv Anna, Mariela Gerez, and more.
With the album, El Remolon seeks a place called Selva, where you connect with your inner self and forget about your problems in the presence of spiritual energy. The 11 tracks on the album give us a range of slow bouncing electro-cumbias mixed with layers of synths, live instrumentation, and plenty of genre bending to create the sound of Selva. Some of my favorites are the collaborations with guest vocalists, the Lido Pimienta led Vestido (stream/DL below) and the Ali Gua Gua fronted Salvia.

In addition, Remolon released a Selva mixtape (listen/DL here) with a grip of exclusive mixes, highly recommended! If you’re still on the fence, check ZZK’s video piece below which features El Remolon talking about his concept behind Selva.
