Free Download: Frikstailers "Foonkie Boogie" (from "Zizek Urban Beats")


Time for something a little different.

Zizek Urban Beats Club is considered one of the hottest clubs nights in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Every Wednesday night, hundreds of urban hipsters, nightlife mavens and other mainstream outcasts gather at Niceto Club in the city's trendy Palermo district to enjoy some of the best underground beats the country has to offer.

Zizek Urban Beats Club is the home of a modernized version of cumbia, a Latin American sound that originates in Columbia and has long been looked down on as dance music for the lower classes in Argentina (much like baile funk in Brazil). Zizek's modern-day version of cumbia is a peppy blend of electronica, dancehall, hip hop and authentic Argentinean tango influences with violins, doublebass and authentic bandoneons. Suffice to say that it is unlike anything you've heard before.

The popular club night plays host to live shows performed by local MCs, producers, composers and DJs and is bringing it's collective to Austin, TX this week to play at South by Southwest. Download a few guilt-free MP3s from an upcoming Zikek Urban Beats Club compilation to get a taste from Buenos Aires' hip and happening underground. (MP3s posted with permission.)
