The battle royale has finally reached it’s zenith. Starting 12 rounds ago the eccentric cumbia master of the French party scene Captain Cumbia called out the equally masterful colleague in crime of his Pedrolito to battle in a soundclash cumbia contest.
During the grueling 12 rounds we’ve seen Captain Cumbia release some of his most exciting work in attempt to shoot Pedrolito down. Pedrolito answered in turn with a brilliant onslaught of his own mixtapes. This article, this post, this literary “masterpiece” Radioglobal.org dangerously decided to become an official war journal archiving all the battles that ensued.
Here it is dear fearless readers. The end?
Pedrolito struck first on the last round with his mix of some greats like Spike Devil Disco, Dragao Style, Cumbia Tokeson, Snow Balderas, DJ Negro Dub, Daniel Fridell, Systema Solar and La Delio Valdez all whom I’ve posted individually about either here or on Sexxy Saturday Cumbia.
Captain Cumbia’s riposte was a surprising mashup dopeness of Tupac’s California Love with the rico sounds of cumbia.
As I teased with my ‘?’ above this most definitely cannot possibly be the end. Could it be? Rest assured there are more exciting contests to come, contests where they will reach out to fellow cumbiamberos for participation. And yes Radioglobal.org will be here to archive it all as it happens.
Peace and soundclash
