El Dusty released his newest single “LaChusa” featuring Toy Selectah and Mexican Institute of Sound.
The newest single from the electro-cumbia pioneer came about from hours of digging through samples sent to El Dusty by Discos Fuentes. The Colombia based label opened up the vault of popular cumbia tracks from the 60’s and 70’s, which gave way to the single.
The sample talks about a bird chilling on a mountain singing a song. It reminded me of LaChusa an old Texas story about an owl with the face of an old lady and she sits on top of your house!
El Dusty has further cemented his place in both Latin music and electronic dance music. With the nomination of “Cumbia Anthem,” the Latin GRAMMYS has set a precedent by recognizing Latino Electronica, EDM, Trap and more Bass and Deep Urban styles; and this is just the beginning.
