Cluster Mix Series 001: Atropolis

Today, Atropolis brings us an exclusive mix that is rife with electric fire-starters from all across the Americas and beyond. From kuduro, to soukous, to nueva cumbia, to 3ball, to dancehall, to baile funk, to just straight up New York house– it is clear that the man can’t stand still. On this one, no crossfade doesn’t also cross borders of geography, culture, tradition, or language, but what of it?  There’s a distinct continuity to it all–the ever-present hum of a synthesizer, or the distinctive thump of an 808 kick–the “nueva” that reminds us that sound travels much farther than it used to, and that perhaps what we’re hearing is a kind of inclusive language we can all speak.
