"As the Zizek cumbiatrain rolls on, it's appropriate that the second release for this Argentine label is from an artist named after a train. The train in question is 'La Chancha' (the pig) and the line that Pedro Canale takes to his hometown, 30 miles out of Buenos Aires, is the 'Circuito' (circle). Chancha explores the minimal side of cumbia digital, influenced through images caught in his head, snapped from train windows. Sparse beats are interspersed with female vocals and there's the signature cry of 'cumbia' that rings out in many of his tracks. Computer bleeps share sonic space with folkloric chant. Candombe drums are accompanied by the sample of a machete splicing the air and a vocal line of indigenous bebop over hints of drum&bass. Chancha is popping off all over the web, you can find mixes, remixes, and blog entries galore (check his 2 tracks on the new Jahdan Blakkamoore CD on Dutty Artz), you can even check him live on tour in the States while you wait for his CD to come out. There's also an EP of instrumentals and mash-ups that relate to the CD release going into production as we speak."
