"World Circuit's reputation zoops up to another level as they loving re-compile their original Cumbia compendiums and present them on discerningly weighted 180g vinyl and a gorgeous gatefold sleeve. Perfect summer time fodder, or indeed any time of year when you want to feel some warmth inside, this 30-strong concoction of red-blooded Latin rhythm is the ideal entry point into Columbian music. From the epic vibrancy of Los Immortales'  to the more sentimental sounds of Los Corraleros De Majagual's "Llora Acordeon" to the absolute chaos of Los Guacharacos's "Baila Rosita" is a beautiful balance of education and entertainment."

" Record One charts the label from 1960 until 1988 and features many of the period’s best-known cumbia songs by the likes of Gabriel Romero, Rodolfo y Su Tipica, and La Sonora Dinamita. These artists were at the forefront of the cumbia wave that swept Latin American dancefloors in the mid-20th century, as the music’s vibrant grooves sparked a surge in its popularity. With tunes as infectious as “La Piragua”, “La Subienda” and “Cumbia Cienaguera”, the music’s mass appeal is easily appreciated. Covering almost forty years, the record offers a range of styles, with the more traditional coastal afro-cumbia merging into the sounds of smoke-filled early-sixties music halls and then into the slicker production of the 1980s. Yet the cumbia rhythm remains ever present, in the percussive click-clack that never lets up and drives the distinguishing beat that is a key trait of the music.

Record Two delves further back into the Discos Fuentes annals, with a selection of songs from the fifties and sixties. Again the cumbia sound is realized in distinct forms that emphasise the scope of the music, through songs that echo the popular big band sound of the period, such as the stylish swagger of La Sonora del Caribe’s “Noche de Estrellas”, or those that are heavily rooted in cumbia’s African heritage, as is the case with “Tabaco Mascao” from Combo Los Galleros or Los Guacharacos’ “Baila Rosita”. Regardless of the individual direction of each track, the record maintains a permanent state of animated excitement that manifests itself through frenetic melodies delivered on accordion, trumpet or clarinet and the relentless high-tempo of the beat."
