New Summer Heat - "Cumbiotica Riddim"

NEW SUMMER HEAT FROM WE CHIEF - “CUMBIOTICA RIDDIM”

Brooklyn, NY:  We Chief crew sets the tone for summer with “Cumbiotica Riddim,” an addictive dancefloor-ready tune that seamlessly fuses elements of Cumbia, Reggae/Dancehall and Electronica. The “Riddim” features versions from Jahdan Blakkamoore (Major Lazer/Snoop Dogg) called “Party Right Here” and “One Man” from dancehall legend Anthony B. Producers Geoffrey Rand and John Bourke (aka Gosteffects), created a jam that will be bumping on beachside boomboxes and in nightclubs all summer long.

Our friends over at Large Up premiered the mix on their "Mixtape Mondays" along with some vibes from Lion Twin and a must-listen to Federation Sound and Chronixx's Roots and Chalice mixtape. Check out the Large Up feature here.

Who needs winter vibes? Certainly not We Chief and crew, breaking off a massive remix from bredren Bad Royale to melt away the cold snap and get you to the tropics, sipping on that "Fresh Lemonade."

Following a World Premiere on Red Bull Panamerika 90.7 Ibero FM (Mexico City) and major radio play in Jamaica, We Chief enlisted the help of Buygore and Mad Decent affiliates and breakout bass champions Bad Royale to turn the dembow-driven original with Captain Planet and Jahdan Blakkamoore into a full-on festival-ready stomper. Boasting a drop that will have you shaking booty from the jump, this one is a must-have for fans of Major Lazer, Sazon Booya/Fight Clvb, and all things dancehall.


This is only the latest in We Chief's ongoing world takeover. This summer saw their tune "Time Fi Legalize" selected as the theme for Complex's series "Motor City High," along with widespread success of "Fresh Lemonade." Many more projects are in the works -- including a forthcoming original series and LOTS more music. Stay tuned!
