El Dusty Announces Winter Tour Dates in Support of Tribal Seeds and Expanders
Producer, DJ, and nu-cumbia pioneer El Dusty is excited to be joining the Powwow Winter Tour alongside Tribal Seeds and Expanders. The crate-digging selecta will embark on a tour for eight shows kicking off in Boise, Idaho on February 12th!
While on the road, fans can expect to hear El Dusty reinterpret the principals of the 1970’s Jamaican sound systems while he mashes the grimey, electro bass sounds, together with a panoply of MC’s, Singers, musicians and other DJ’s. Adding an extraordinary must-see show to the already killer line-up.
With the launch of his imprint, Americano Label, El Dusty has been producing with some of the hottest emerging acts bridging cumbia and reggae including Soulfya, Jah Fabio, New Kingston; and dropped a mixtape remix of “World on Fire,” Stick Figure’s fan favorite, with featured verses from Common Kings. And now on tour with Tribal Seeds and Expanders, El Dusty has emerged into his place within the dub, Soundsystem scenes. What the Father of Dub, Lee Scratch Perry is to Reggae, El Dusty is to Cumbia.
The Latin Grammy-nominated composer, arranger and ringmaster, Dusty (AKA El Dusty) is considered by some to be the inventor of Cumbia Electronica. He has been feeding cumbia into his sound processor and synthesizer before the turn of the millennium as he translates the Southern Texas border experience into new anthems where the MPC2000 sampler and chopped clips of Latin and reggae music history collide.
