    latin music

    Post by undo on Sat Jan 21, 2017 3:11 am

    Walked by this car that was playing something really loud, it had this really simple, slow and repetitive reggae bassline and I don't know if that was really "supposed" to be so loud or if this was just how the guy's stereo system was making it sound.

    It had the typical melody that would be played by a melodica, especially in a dub reggae style song, but it was definitely being played by an accordion in the style of music played in taco shops. That is a terrible description but it is the best I can do.

    If there's some kind of electronic/bass music that features traditional instruments like this, I might want to know about it.

    This is #1 on the REGIONAL MEXICAN SONGS chart and has 86 million views.




    I have no context for this, but the part at 3:00 in sounds really weird to my ears.

    undo, just check out your local Mexican FM station. I think you'd be surprised by a lot of the music. If you are in range listen to Vocolo radio 9.11 FM on Sunday's and you'll hear all kinds of interesting Latin music.

    I wish I was, and it irritates me to hear them constantly plugging it on WBEZ and getting emails about all their shows when it just doesn't come in out here it all.

    I also like Helado Negro but I think I'm looking for stuff that hasn't been covered by Pitchfork.

    from my limited understanding, this is what some reggaeton/dancehall fusion is nowadays but i have the same issue of never being able to figure out what the good tracks i should be listening to are.

    Same.  It's awful.  I've taken to going to up to people (or employees in restaurants, when applicable), when I can, and just asking them what song is playing.  As a result, I've been able to track down some real gems.  But there's little as disappointing as finding out that you don't share a common language with someone in one of these situations.  That's happened to me more than a few times, too.

    This station is endlessly teased and hyped on WBEZ but I'm 21 miles west of Chicago and we don't even get a trace of the FM signal for it. I have not tried tuning in digitally but don't even know what I'd use to do so.
