There are lots more I have heard. The Latin America – Europe musical alliance can also been seen with dudes like Ricardo Villalobos, Gui Boratto, Monoblock, Matías Aguayo, and Alexi Delano. All very excellent minimalist artists whom I encourage you to check out.
Obviously this is on top of the whole cumbia fascination (I will refer you to Optimo’s cumbia mix for Beats in Space).
