If you're yet to pick up what the label Soundway Records is throwing down, you're seriously missing out. They're musical adventurers; coming the globe for lost nuggets of afrobeat, champeta, and cumbia. This outfit leaves no stone unturned.

Their latest batch of tracks comes in the form of Palenque Palenque: A snapshot of Afro Columbian music's development from the '70s to the '90s. This collection is loaded with otherworldly grooves, and spiced with some essential melodies.

Stream two tracks from this new compilation below, and let me know what you think. How do you feel about this type of music? Does it "get the job done"? Is this something you would blast loudly in your car whilst driving down the road?
