Dansbare mix van cumbia, techno, champeta, hip hop en rock op dit album (2xLP) van Systema Solar uit Medellin, Colombia. 2014 release.
The success of Systema Solar’s self-titled debut album first launched them from local celebrity to international acclaim. After being brought together by a serendipitous encounter in Medellín, the group members combined their backgrounds in cumbia, techno, champeta, hip hop, and rock to form an energetic sound that simultaneously embraces their Colombian heritage and charges forward into contemporary electronica. With audiences growing abroad, the group set off on a string of tours, dazzling fans throughout Europe and the Americas with their amalgamation of music and live video mixing, all performed while clothed in some truly celestial costumes.
The group’s version of La Esquina Del Movimiento, originally sung by legendary, Barranquillero vocalist Nelson Piñedo and Cuban super-group La Sonora Matancera, is a nod to the musician whose international success made him an ambassador for Colombian music around the world. Perhaps alluding to Piñedo’s days as a radio announcer himself, the song starts with the hollow sound of an announcer speaking over salsa brass that seems to emanate from an old-school radio. The tune celebrates guanguancó and the Cuban son which Piñedo sang. The modern mix of electronic sound creates a lively and seamless connection between the old and the new.

Systema Solar is undoubtedly one of Colombia’s new musical scene most creative band. La Revancha Del Burro is their 2014 release. LP only.
Some have pointlessly tried to define the genre of there music, sometimes has “World”, “Tropical”, “Global Bass”, or simply “Cumbia” but the band truly developed their own style: the “Berbenautika”, fusioning colombian folklore such as porro, cumbia and champeta with elements of electronics, breakbeat, hip-hop, reggae, salsa, calypso and so on, along with a strong visual identity inspired by the african heritage of the “pico” culture from the Caribbean Coast
They recorded nearly half of this new album live from two different studios located in Bogotá and in Santa Marta, on the Colombian Caribbean Coast, to recreate the same feeling and energy they deliver on stage.
One of the most delightful surprise is undoubtedly the featuring of Debbie Harry from Blondie in soulful “Artificial”.
Catchy melodies in “Maria Casquito” and “Artificial”, disco funk in “Nite Nine”, atmospheric cumbia in “Antena”, hip-hop beats in “Tukupakata” and “Eso Ke Es”, electronics in “Indio Guerrero” and “Machete” , salsa vibes in “Esquina”, dance floor hits “el Boton Del Pantalon”, “La Rana” and “Yo Voy Ganao”, come together to build a solid and mature piece, that is not only the continuity of what everyone always liked about the band, but also a brilliant and conscious album, turned towards the future, about recycling, connecting with nature, criticizing our consumer society, and preserving caribbean and colombian culture.
Groove, fusion, energy, spontaneity, consciousness and awareness; this is La Revancha Del Burro, this is Systema Solar!
