Epic Champeta! Pernett Drops New Single from Forthcoming Album
It’s no secret that we are big fans of Pernett, the craftsman DJ and producer with a keen ability to re-work traditional styles of Colombian music for a new generation. Which is why we are excited (and you should be too) about his forthcoming album The Caribbean Computer. Today Pernett dropped a new single from the record called “Al Caribe Volvere” and described it as “epic champeta.” To us, the track which features the Sukiyaki Steel Orchestra from Japan sounds like champeta filtered through some ‘80s new-wave and a 8-bit NES system. Which is pretty epic. Also, where else will you hear Japan-Colombian steel drum champeta? And what's up with that cover?!
