Playlist: Krak in Dub – In the Mighty Colombian “Jungle” (June 2021)

Kid-Amazonit_credits J. Pierredon3

If you never listened to him before (which sounds a bit odd considering his 60 vinyl-rich discography), you might raise an eyebrow knowing that one of the most original and sought-after dub and jungle producers is actually a Paris-based Argentinian. Still, Krak in Dub is continuing to demonstrate the fact that you don’t need to be born where a style originated to become one of its most inspired interpreters.

KiD’s latest work, titled Catleya and published by Galletas Calientes Records in mid-May, reinforces that “rule” even further. It is indeed a good-and-proper dub and jungle album but, at the same time, it’s fully soaked with with Colombian and Afro-Caribbean traditional vibes. 

This gives the 10 chapters composing the LP a very distinct and bright identity, emphasised by the “special guests” enriching them, like Afro-Colombian outfits La Perla and Absalon & Afropacifico, and Bermudian singer Troy Berkley.

To know more about the origins and inspiration behind Krak in Dub’s riveting sound, we asked the “roots reggae junglist” to put together a playlist with some of the tunes that shaped his latest album…

Los Gaiteros de San Jacinto - "Fuego de Cumbia (Cumbia Fire)" [Official Audio]

Listen to the official audio for Los Gaiteros de San Jacinto's "Fuego de Cumbia (Cumbia Fire)" from their 2006 release on Smithsonian Folkways, 'Un Fuego de Sangre Pura: Los Gaiteros de San Jacinto from Colombia.' This album is a 2007 Latin Grammy winner! 'Un Fuego de Sangre Pura: Los Gaiteros de San Jacinto from Colombia' available on CD and Digital. Stream/download/purchase: Smithsonian Folkways: https://folkways.si.edu/los-gaitero... Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/album/3WMh... With 'Un Fuego de Sangre Pura (A Fire of Pure Blood),' the roots of the cumbia thrive in the music of Los Gaiteros de San Jacinto from Colombia's violence-torn Caribbean hinterlands. The sounds of long-tubed gaita flutes, unique drums, and maraca stoke the fire of the cumbia and of other regional dances—the fast-paced puya and porro, the cadential gaita corrida, and the bullerengue. Los Gaiteros de San Jacinto, the senior statesmen of their tradition, are an animated emblem of Colombian nationhood and a resilient fountainhead for some of Latin America's favorite dance rhythms.

Los Destellos - Guajira Sicodélica

Enrique Delgado desde antes de ser músico del Conservatorio ya transitaba en grupos de música criolla, infantil, mexicana y cuanto hay para un jovencito inquieto, hasta que decidió incursionar en lo que le atraía más en ese momento: el rock. No sé por qué la cosa no funcionó, pero entre 1967 y 1968, junto con Tito Caycho en el bajo, Carlos Ramirez en la percusión y el gran Fernando Quiroz (un roquero que venía de Los Zanys) en la segunda guitarra, crearon un nuevo género, algo que yo no me atrevo a llamar cumbia, pero que de hecho es el brillante inicio de lo que ahora se llama cumbia peruana. Por su sonido sicodélico yo lo ubico entre los grupos de rock de los sesentas; no me importa lo que digan los especialistas. Ah, me olvidaba: Enrique Delgado es una de los pocas guitarras eléctricas que tengo en un altar.
