El Dusty To Release LaChusa on November 11th

 El Dusty  LaChusa On the heels of his Latin GRAMMY nomination this year for “Cumbia Anthem,” El Dusty is set to release his newest single “LaChusa” featuring Toy Selectah and Mexican Institute of Sound, out November 11, 2016 on AFTERCLUV. The newest single from the electro-cumbia pioneer came about from hours of digging through samples sent to El Dusty by Discos Fuentes. The Colombia based label opened up the vault of popular cumbia tracks from the 60’s and 70’s, which gave way to the single. For El Dusty, “The sample talks about a bird chilling on a mountain singing a song. It reminded me of LaChusa an old Texas story about an owl with the face of an old lady and she sits on top of your house!”
Collaborators on the track include Toy Selectah and Mexican Institute of Sound’s Camilo Lara. The warm vibe from the track is due to Mariano Herrera who played bajo sexto, bass and guitar. El Dusty explains, “I did the beat in Corpus and sent it to Camilo to record his vocals in Mexico City. After what I thought was done I took it to Toy Selectah in Austin. He chopped it all up, did his magic on it and the song took a sort of banda from Balkan turn. I brought it back to Corpus and added the live elements with Mariano. Camilo gives it a dope eerie vibe to an awkward cumbia beat. It reminds me of some 90’s house tunes I used to rock as a kid.” LaChusa video will be released later this fall. The video was produced and animated by LA based Chicano Art artist EL OMS. His recent credits include the video for The Arc’s single, “Put A Flower In Your Pocket”
