Taking Campanera by Aniceto Molina, a Colombian cumbia artist who spent the last 30 years of his life in San Antonio, Texas, El Dusty teamed up with 3Ball MTY producer and tribal guarachero innovator Erick Rincn to create a track thats production process was as digital as its sound. Since El Dusty and Erick were never able to meet for a real-time studio session, they worked on the track by sending versions back and forth to each other online, ultimately creating a dramatic 3ball crunk track that highlights the irresistible cumbia sample and 808 drum patterns to ground the sound in the Southern hip-hop tradition.Trapanera EP is primed for the peak times of a tropical bass DJ set.
