Gilles Peterson’s Havana Cultura Band – The Rumba Experiment (Motor City Drum Ensemble)

Motor City Drum Ensemble - La Rumba Experimental

Brownswood Recordings are gearing up for the latest chapter in the long-standing relationship between Gilles Peterson and the music of Cuba. The new project sees him explore the roots of rumba through a project comprising three parts: a feature-length documentary, a collection of remixes and a free sample pack.

The album is set to drop on March 11th and the second taste from the album comes in the shape of Motor City Drum Ensemble‘s four-to-the-floor, hypnotic slow burning track titled The Rumba Experimental.

Listen to the Motor City Drum Ensemble’s remix below.

The release features other remixes from Tenderlonious, Al Dobson Jr, Reginald Omas Mamode IV, Mo Kolours, Pépé Braddock, débruit and more.

Gilles Peterson’s new project, Havana Club Rumba Sessions, drops on Friday, March 11th, on Brownswood Recordings.
