In mid 2009 Frente Cumbiero invited the legendary Dub producer Mad Professor to Bogota, as part of the British Council's Incubator project, with the aim of making a sonic encounter between Cumbia and Dub. For three days, under the guidance of Mad Professor and his son Joe Ariwa, were recorded in studies of the Faculty of Arts at the Universidad Javeriana several issues to be addressed under the aesthetic of Dub.
Besides recording original Frente compositions, part of the project sought to bring together key players in the Bogota scene to improvise and create together in studio. Of those improvisations came three collective compositions, in addition to 4 Frente originals for a total of 7 songs that were remixed with Dub techniques by Mad Professor in his London Ariwa studio. The result of the album, as well as becoming one of the first tangible encounters between Cumbia and Dub, brings a new sound to the powerful Colombian cumbia movement.
