Future Sounds of Buenos Aires is one of the first collaborations between US label Waxploitation and Argentina’s ZZK Collective. It represents emerging styles and sounds, primarily focused on Nu-Cumbia, which mixes the classic genre with electronica. ZZK has an interesting story, having grown out of the Buenos Aires club scene in 2006 to being one of the great exporters of contemporary Latin music. Of all the tracks, the one that stands out the most for me is from Mariana Yegros aka La Yegros. La Yegros’ track here lacks some of the more “future” elements of artists like El Remolon or King Coya, but with her distinctive vocals and the fantastic mid-tempo cumbia beat, it’s a perfect sound for the summer. There should be a full-length release from La Yegros later in the year, so don’t worry not only is the more to come, but you will definitely hear it here on Melting Pot.
