The Cumbia Cosmonauts continue to push ahead as leading innovators of the global cumbia digital and tropical bass scenes. The production aesthetic of Melbourne-based Moses Iten (aka Saca La Mois DJ!!) – producing in collaboration with Thomas ‘Soup’ Campbell – is a combination of the infectious Caribbean offbeat rhythm with warm dub bass lines, sweeping synthesizers and driving beats. Cumbia Cosmonauts live is an explosive experience whether solo or as a band, and features characteristic Mexican style MCing, digital percussion and improvised solos.

    Cumbia Cosmonauts will open the closing night at Max Watts on Saturday 14 November with Ngaiire, Ella Thompson, Latinaotearoa + DJ’s.
