Bersa Discos #4

Dec 18 2008

Bersa Discos got a new release out since last week, “Bersa Discos #4”. The have gone in somewhat of a different direction for this one, for a label focusing on cumbia and other tropical sounds, and got tracks from Brooklyn DJ/producer Uproot Andy and Dutch producer Sonido del Principe.

They gave us a mp3 from the release called “La Vida Vale La Pena” and it’s by Uproot Andy. You might know him from his recent Guacharaca Migration mixtape. He’s also an unofficial cohort of DJ Rupture’s Dutty Artz collective. He got three tracks for “Bersa #4”, all of which sample classic Afro-Colombian tunes. This one samples a track from Petrona Martinez.

Go buy the record over at Turntable Lab.

If you are in San Francisco tomorrow be sure to visit their 1-Year Anniversary of their monthly Tormenta Tropical party. They got Heatwave coming out from London and Paul Devro from Mad Decent. It should be an amazing party.
