Electronic | Tune In Crew – Cumbia pour la Sixième République

Posted by on June 28, 2013

Tune In Crew

Our favorite politically minded French producers are back with some funky cumbia for your ears — just in time for summer heatwaves and the Fourth of July. This track has an undeniable throwbacky quality, along the lines of something that might be playing during the opening credits of a Quentin Tarantino movie. I blame the guitar riffs. And who ever thought those Latin drums would marry together so well with French? While the sample in “Cumbia pour la Sixième République” is technically advocating for change in France’s democratic institutions, you’ve got to love revolutionary overtones when Independence Day is on the horizon. (Refer to the description on Soundcloud — Google translate if you’re like me and working off of rusty college French.) Vive la République!

Attention iPhone users, come this Independence Day, you guys might be a little salty. According to Samsung, they will be giving the brand spanking new album from Sean Carter (Jay-Z) himself to the owners of the Galaxy smartphone for free. You read that correctly. I’m not sure which one is bigger news, the egregious marketing attempt by Samsung, or the album itself. Anywho, it definitely has my cosign…and I’m an iPhone user! Check back soon cause I’m sure some of the singles will be releasing soon. Big things from Hov and the Roc comin soon.
