SONG OF THE DAY: El Bongo de Rule (rebajada)

This selection comes from one of Sonido Dueñez’s mixtapes he made back in the day of slowed down cumbia music sold in a Monterrey flea market. Dueñez was a pioneer of slowed down music, and after the internet rediscovered him, cumbias rebajadas became a bona fide genre with him as the legendary figure who helped create it. Dueñez suffered a stroke last week, and has been in the hospital recovering, and his family has set up a Go Fund Me to help support him. Now having had a slowed music radio show for half a year, I really put Dueñez alongside DJ Screw as the two true and original patron saints of slowed music. If you have the ability, throw a couple dollars the way of the Dueñez family.
