Above : more proof that Space Is The Place…. at least when it comes to Mexi-Australian tropical bass genres.
That’s the fruits of a few quick projection and filming sessions with the Cumbia Cosmonauts, featuring custom graphics made by the CC VJ – Martin Hadley (I especially liked his spaceship control deck!). I’d like to think if there’s ever a Mexi-Australian space program, that it looks something like this… ie has that Ed Wood in space vibe about it, maybe with styling by Lee Scratch Perry & Sun Ra.
The Cumbia Cosmonauts are a Melbourne band who are celebrated around the world with their take on Mexico’s cumbia music, and so fittingly, they release their new album, Tropical Bass Station, on the Berlin label, Chusma records, on Nov 23, 2012. The track ‘Our Journey To The Moon (And Back)’ comes from that album.
