From the sweltering tropical depths of Cali, Colombia, Will "Quantic" Holland's studio band Los Miticos Del Ritmo (trans. "The Mythics Of Rhythm") return with an album of hip-shaking, dancefloor-quaking instrumental cumbias. Assembled using vallenato and cumbia musicians living in Cali, Los Miticos Del Ritmo are a 7-piece studio band put together by British musician, producer and now Colombian resident Will "Quantic" Holland. Covers of Queen's "Another One Bites The Dust," Michael Jackson's "Don't Stop" and Gildardo Montoya's "Fabiola" (as featured on Soundway's The Original Sound Of Cumbia) sit alongside original cumbias on this feel-good, house party cumbia album. Recorded in Will's home studio in Cali, his approach was to produce an album with the aesthetics of 1960s tropical recordings made in Colombia and the Caribbean. Careful attention was made to preserve the analog quality of the recording at every stage. "The idea of the record was to record something that sounded like a lost cumbia classic," said Will in a recent interview with Soundway, "like something dug out of a Barranquilla basement after decades of humidity and dust." The LP version is 100% analog and comes with an original screen-printed front cover designed by the London-based artist Lewis Heriz.
