Afrobeta Appears in New Calle 13 Video for "Electromovimiento"
Everything's cyclical. It's the reason for a resurgence of skinny jeans and Keds -- the 1980s were due for a comeback that started early in the New Millennium and steadily gained steam. And that trend wasn't lost on Latin rock groups. Outfits like Belanova, The Pinker Tones, and Babasonicos began cranking out synth-laden tunes like it was the second coming of Axel Foley, though they never lost their rock edge.
As time has passed, the Eighties mania has left more and more of us clamoring for good old-fashioned freestyle. Now, Calle 13 has got you covered with a track on its third album, Los de Atras Vienen Conmigo. The duo collaborated with Miami favorites Afrobeta for a retro-flavored track called "Electromovimiento."
And the fun didn't stop in the studio. Afrobeta's Cuci Amador and Tony Smurphio (the hardest working 'fro in show business) found their way onto the set of the video shoot too. The video premiered recently on MySpace; follow the jump to watch it.
