Scattermusic delivers its 13th official release, a super tight debut EP from Melbourne outfit Cumbia Cosmonauts. Emerging from somewhere in the distant reaches of the space/time continuum, the Cumbia Cosmonauts come with their signature blend of super heavy Afro-Colombian rhythms, bugged out accordion and sci-fi sweeps. This EP is a tribute to the world’s lesser-known space programs, where large budgets may be lacking but are more than compensated for with raw originality, courage and enthusiasm. Originally written whilst on a 16-date tour of Europe last summer, the Cumbia Cosmonauts production duo Soup and Saca La Mois DJ!! have tirelessly refined these tunes to deliver this EP of intergalactic proportions. Whether you call it Digital Cumbia or simply Tropical Bass, this is undoubtedly futurist folk music, perfect for not just your headphones, but also a packed club at 1am.
