Wow. The past few days I was thinking of posting some cumbia and other songs that have been on my mind, and Alexis – your last video, Los Angeles Azules, was a perfect segue into what I want to post.

This is a dedication to Junkadelic, where I worked my last 3 months in Tokyo in ’09. As anyone who lives in Tokyo can attest, Junkadelic is the best spot for Mexican, for tequila, for margaritas, and – I was surprised – for random cumbia listening.

Visit their website here (it’s good) and visit them when in Tokyo. The guys who run it are awesome, and make frequent trips to Mexico for surfing, tequila (they bring back a ton in their suitcases and have one of Tokyo’s best selections), and – apparently – random cumbia and other Mexican and Latin mix CDs.

Junkadelic, Tokyo

Some of these songs are ridiculously good. These are the songs we used to work to. Imagine my shock, after almost 4 years of living in Japan, to all of a sudden be working to this soundtrack.

This post is dedicated to Junkadelic, and most of the songs I am posting below are from Junkadelic’s CD collection. So ありまさん and あべさん and everyone, this is for you!
