Recorded in both Bogota and the Caribbean island of Old Providence, Ondatrópica are ready to announce their second record ‘Baile Bucanero’. Fuelled by bushy rum, the sessions, often including up to 35 musicians, captured the dialogues between Calypso and Gaita, Accordion and Lapsteel, Clave and Mandolin, even synthesizer and a horse’s jaw bone.

Standard CD version comes with 20 page booklet and download code featuring bonus tracks.Conceived by Colombian musician Mario Galeano, the force behind the band Frente Cumbiero, and English producer Will ‘Quantic’ Holland, Ondatrópica brings together an all-star cast representing both the classic and modern styles of la musica Colombiana. Over 3 weeks in January 2012 at the famous Discos Fuentes studios in Medellín legendary figures from Colombian music joined a group of younger Colombian musicians that included members of both Mario’s band Frente Cumbeiro and Quantic’s Combo Barbaro. The plan; “to re-interpret the tropical musical heritage of Colombia with new approaches in composition, arrangement and production in a classic and mythical setting.”For the recording Will and Mario were joined by Colombian legends including big-hitting saxophonist Michi Sarmiento, multi-instrumentalist Fruko and accordion-playing don and singer Anibal Velasquez as well as a new wave of Colombian and South American musicians such as Chilean MC Ana Tijoux and El Chongo, a young percussionist and beatboxer from the city of Cartagena on the Caribbean coast.A mixture of well known and classic Colombian styles such as cumbia, porro, gaita and champeta clash head-on with boogaloo, ska, beat-box, hip hop, dub and funk on the record. The tracks range from straight-up timeless pieces with one foot in the 1960s and 70s to progressive and forward-looking recordings firmly rooted in the 21st century. Mario and Will also adopted a 100% analogue recording approach in tribute to a sound and feel that the studio had been lacking for some years now.Soundway’s exploration into Colombian music began in 2007 with it’s much acclaimed compilation ‘Colombia! The Golden Age of Discos Fuentes The Powerhouse of Colombian Music 1960-76’. That compilation features many original works from the above-mentioned artists as well as some of the main session men of the day that also played on this new record. It’s fitting then that Ondatrópica came together in the legendary Discos Fuentes studios in Medellín.

The first single from Frente Cumbeiro's Mario Galeano and Will 'Quantic' Holland's new all-star Colombian band Ondatrópica gets served up here as a DJ friendly 7” ahead of the worldwide album release on 16th July. Ondatrópica brings together an all-star cast representing both the classic and modern styles of la musica Colombiana and features legendary figures (Fruko, Anibal Velasquez, Wilson Viveros, Michi Sarmiento to name a few) from Colombia’s rich musical past alongside younger Colombian musicians including members of both Mario’s band Frente Cumbeiro and Quantic’s Combo Barbaro as well as some specially invited guests.'Punkero Sonidero' is a raw, instrumental tune and with its analog synth bass and four-to-the-floor feel is the band's salute to the cumbia diaspora worldwide. It was one of the first tracks that the group recorded after they entered the famous Discos Fuentes studios in Medellín and so it seems fitting that it should be the first track to get cut to vinyl.'I Ron Man' is on the flip-side, a drunken take on Black Sabbath's classic 'Iron Man' with a tongue-in-cheek title - 'Ron' being 'Rum' in Spanish. The track features Michi Sarmiento, the big-hitting saxophonist of the golden age of Colombian music who, along with Will 'Quantic’ Holland and Mario Galeano, takes a toast of rum (ron) and whisky to celebrate the world’s common interest of inebriation.
