Quantic y Los Miticos del Ritmo - Hotline Cumbia

“Hotline Bling” / “Doombia” is the much anticipated follow-up single from
renowned NY-based producer and musician Will “Quantic” Holland’s Los
Miticos del Ritmo accordion band. On this latest offering, a sonidero special
of Drake’s “Hotline Bling” is paired with original footwork hybrid “Doombia”. 

Heading up the A-Side, the catchy pop lines in Drake’s “Hotline Bling” lend
themselves perfectly to the cumbia percussion and rhythms of Quantic’s
phenomenal instrumental cover, to create something magnetic and
unforgettable. Elevating the traditional use of instruments like the accordion,
alegre and guacharaca, Holland hits with a Mexican Rebajada (slowed down
or screwed) beat, tuning his accordion by hand, in the tuning style of Calixto
Ochoa. “Hotline Bling” was first played by Holland in his DJ set for Boiler Room
in Los Angeles last year, he elaborates:

“The show was in a historic discoteca in LA, a city with a big appreciation for
Colombian diasporic music and the influences of Mexican sonideros.”

Cut to dub specially for the performance, the track won a remarkable reaction
from the eager dancefloor and initiated a flurry of worldwide interest online
(200K YouTube views). The B-Side brings an unheard accordion cut in the
form of “Doombia” - a manifestation of modern instrumentation and frenetic
beats. “The B- Side is an original, bringing accordion from the Colombian Atlantic
closer to the digital footwork/house dance of Chicago. The flute plays an Andean
melody with 808 snare keeping the double time rhythm” Holland explains.
