DJ El Dusty coming to The Siren in Morro Bay this month
The Siren will be the first stop of the tour
–Producer, DJ and nu-cumbia pioneer El Dusty announces his upcoming Cumbia Para Todo El Mundo tour and the release of his summer anthem “Cámara Lenta.” The tour kicks off on August 19 as he heads to the west coast. From the North Bay’s Morro Bay he hits up the Rasta at Shasta music festival before heading to Southern California. He ventures back to Texas for a Dia de los Muertos hometown show and back up to the pacific northwest.
A Latin Grammy-nominated composer, arranger and ringmaster, Dusty is considered by some to be the inventor of cumbia electronica. He has been feeding cumbia into his sound processor and synthesizer before the turn of the millennium as he translates the Southern Texas border experience into new anthems where the MPC2000 sampler and chopped clips of Latin and reggae music history collide.
Embodying elements of cumbia, electronic, and trap, the new release “Cámara Lenta” proves to be another textbook banger from El Dusty. The track features an elite cast group of artists all who stand alone with critical accolades and fan cult followings led by the ringmaster himself, El Dusty. To date, Adan Cruz has amassed almost 700,000 monthly listeners on Spotify. Serko Fu has been hailed as one of the best storytellers of rap en español with his breakout song “Margarito”. And Morenito de Fuego’s video for his hit single “Maldición Gitana” has received around 1 million views.
“We’re excited to be releasing music with friends. This is the first of a load of tunes coming!” Dusty said.
Dusty’s live performances are filled with high energy and dance floor beats. He’s accompanied by The Homies, an assortment of live performers including celebrated percussionists, vocalists and at times dancers. Dusty has graced the stages at premier festivals including Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) Las Vegas, EDC Mexico, Puerto Rico’s Ciudad Sonido Festival, Corpus Christi’s Fiesta de la Flor, Universal’s Latin GRAMMY Showcase, Brisk Bodega Tour, the Mad Decent Block Party, South by Southwest and more.
