About the video
Banzé is the vision of Leopold Nunan, together with Emmy Nominee Billy Clift they developed a visual masterpiece that touches on the subject of what’s going on right now in Brazil, with the current right wing political takeover. It is inspired on a real Los Angeles character ‘Morena Santos’ a political activist who uses her talent as a samba dancer to empower women from all over the world.
The music video takes place in two countries USA and Brazil. We chose to use Copacabana beach and the famous sinuous black and white stoned boardwalk as the setting in Brazil, and in the United States we chose to use “East Jesus” located in Slab City or “The Slabs” which is known as the lay free place in the US as the backdrop to give the feeling that we are lost in this lawless land filled with sculptures, abandoned cars, old military plane, all in an open yard gallery.
In this music video Leo pays homage to the native americans of Brazil, also honored to announce the presence of Inuia Kamaiura Amaru from Xingu, a Brazilian native tribe member from Mato Grosso. He is the focus of the video with the flute sounds symbolising unity!
We want to raise awareness about the oppression going on with this minority group of natives, so that their voice can be heard, the Brazilian native people are suffering a lot under the current right wing Brazilian president.
Art for Leopold is a platform where he can express himself, it is an escape for him, it is his way to scream, it is his outlet to bring joy to all.

Rec Sonidera & El Satánico Doctor Trvza- Repite y Reproduce (Rinse & Repeat)
Epic Digital Cumbia release brought you via Cassette Blog (plus more)
Andean Bass, neo-folklore, shamanic bass, and a heavy load of ethnic jargon to describe electronic fusion with the old school sounds has been an alternative since the inception of the digital era.
This sentiment as brought an epic result of just do the opposite.
Make something soooo old school cumbia yet relevant for an electronic crowd that to apply a moniker different than Digital Cumbia to describe it would be a dishonor.
This is a 100% cumbia release. Visionary indeed, still truly loyal to the Mexican Cumbia rebajada appeal.
BY THE WAY.. if you want to know the LATEST and MOST TRENDY acts in Cumbia right now, Cassette also made a well researched, and highly awarded compilation featuring the best Cumbia acts from SXSW 2019
Caballo- Recycled Revolution
Brand new Album from Caballo. 14 tracks, 14 different genres. FREE DL
To celebrate a decade in front of Latino Resiste, Caballo releases a new album exploring the current Urban Latino fronts, whether it is new approach like the opening track Souvenir, or exploring lesser known genres like Mode up (From San Andres Island) on the second track (Te quiero Para Mi) or even adding a bit of ska to the Urban Latino track (SANSON) Caballo wants this album to be a testimony of what the label and his own trip ahead of it has accomplished on these first 10 years.
As usual on any Caballo album, heavy collaborations conjoint lesser known names with equally leveled creative skills. Mixing party intended lyrics as well as political and social tracks.
A massive addition is the Dancehall track IMMIGRATION LAW with legendary Buju Banton, highlighting eternal struggle of immigrants trying to follow the nomadic path of reaching a better life in a new place faces global and social pressures by not only the actual travel’s dangers but also facing the systematic discrimination imposed by those who are afraid of interact with the newcomers.
Another great collaboration is done with Canadian Rap legend RELIC on Nothing to Spare (and later on another track SOCIALITE)
Global Bass pioneer Feral, and Russian basshead Chuck Upbeat are also present on a newer take on Tweet retweet, while Venezuelan bangeristas MEDINA and ALPIRE are present in the album as well, one by producing PUM PUM and the former co-producing Old-school Moombahton Mueve la Patica.
Dave Nada Hermanito’s own RANDIZZLE features Caballo on DURO HP.. a heavy dembow track that becomes a simply a laser bass slayer.
Caballo focuses on bass with the collab with Mr Shammi, and later decides to explore dubstep’s own RIDDIM on Sangre Mestiza, making this the first RIDDIM track exploring Latin-indigenous issues.
The amazing art was done by talented American Artist Hugh D’Andrade responsible for the art of the Anarchist Bookfair.
