Vinyl LP pressing includes digital download featuring eight additional tracks. After the success of Vol. 1, French Colombia-based label Galletas Calientes Records is back on track with another Palenque Records Afrocolombia Remix series, inviting more talented producers from worldwide ‘global bass’ scene to revisit all time Afro-Colombian classic musical pieces. Palenque Records' original artists, such as Son Palenque, Batata y Su Rumba Palenquera, Colombiafrica The Mystic Orchestra.., living testimonies of how much Africa has influenced traditional music in Colombia, have developed a remarkable culture, collaborating with African musicians such as Diblo Dibala, Bopol Mansiamina, Dally Kimoko or Nyboma. Most of them are considered to be the precursors of Champeta, a unique musical genre setting its roots in the West African Soukous and folklore. This music is the origin of the very interesting Picó culture of the Caribbean coast of Colombia. In this volume, we´ll go deeper into modern Champeta, re-interpreting DJ's works of the like of Rata Piano, typically dropping some catchy soukous guitar samples and going mad on some cheap Casio sampler over heavy drum machines played live. Remixes and edits from Bosq (U.S.), The Busy Twist (UK), Umoja (NL), Bleepolar (CO), Dj Panko (ESP) and Frikstailers (AR) are featured on this second volume.
