Zizek

Nightlife — By

One of the top parties in the city, Zizek gave light to what is know globally known as Cumbia digital.  It started as a small weekly clubnight, and in a short amount of time became one of the best week night events in Buenos Aires.   That’s no small feat considering the plethora of party options available in Argentina´s capital.  Nevertheless, the success of Zizek had only just begun. The weekly parties led to CD releases, tours around the country, and finally, tours around the world, including a performance at one of the globe’s biggest festivals – Roskilde.

Buenos Aires is where cumbia digital started, and if you are in BA now, don’t miss a chance to see it where it all began.   ZIzek nights feature electronic music that can best be described as a mash up of cumbia with reggaeton, dancehall, hip-hop and any possible variation you can think of.    Think lots of hip-hop/reggaton samples, with that signature rolling cumbia rythm.  Nevertheless, as Cumbia Digital becomes more popular, more and more DJs are popping up around the world, which is leading to the mixing of new and different sounds and the evolution of a genre.   Zizek continues to push the boundaries of the music they started, and the style is now more of a mashup of traditional/indigenous music and rythms with electronic overlays and hip hop samples.
