Pocz & Pacheko – ‘Muévelo’ / ‘Changa Letal’ EP out 26th Nov on Enchufada(Free Download & Video)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 15, 2012 by J.D.

Long gone are the days when the periphery sat down, eagerly waiting for the Western tastemakers to let them in on what’s the cool new rhythm to dance to. Bands like Buraka Som Sistema have proven with great success how the infectious rhythms from the ghettos of Luanda have taken over the global stage, setting the tone for a new breed of producers to incorporate kuduro and world rhythms in their ever-widening spectrum of infuences, thus paving the way for the emergence of the Global Bass phenomenon. But of course you already know all about that, so we’d like to tell you about something new.
All the way from Caracas comes a new high-octane bass-heavy genre called Tuki, born and bred in the slums of the Venezuelan capital. Just like the people who created it, it is energetic, larger than life and 100% focused on the dance foor. After growing for a decade inside the impoverished neighborhoods of Caracas, producers like Pocz & Pacheko are fnally bringingTuki to European dance foors and ‘Changa Letal‘ proves it’s here to stay.
On their quest to spread the Tuki virus worldwide, Pocz & Pacheko teamed up with one of the pioneers of the genre, DJ Yirvin, on the single Muévelo. This fery new track will serve as the lead single of their brand-new Enchufada record ‘Changa Letal‘, which will be released on November 5th along with a brand new video. Muévelo will also be available for free download.
Tracks like Aguas CalientesExcalibur or the Cardopusher collaboration Los Rompediscotecas also serve as a feverish introduction to the hard-hitting rhythms of Tuki, by showcasing the 90s techno infuence that permeates the style, as well as the modern infuences of the Dutch bubbling and fdget scenes. All these styles are sped up and spiced with a wild South-American favor, making them ideal for any thrill-seeking globalized dance foor.
On the collaboration front, the pair also teamed up with the kuduro ambassadors Buraka Som Sistema, who were probably the frst outsiders to recognize the importance of the Venezuelan phenomenon, and couldn’t help but wanting to get in on the action in the hypnotizing Perrenke. Last but not least, the Venezuelan dynamic duo enlisted the remixing skills of Barcelona residents Disco Duro, whose appetite for dance foor destruction is bound to become common knowledge very soon.
Like Buraka Som Sistema and kuduro, or Bonde do Rolê and baile funk, we’re witnessing a sonic revolution that’s bound to rock the foundations of the Global Bass scene. Artists like Addison GrooveBrenmar and Toy Selectah were quick to show their support, so come meet us and Pocz & Pacheko on the front lines.

Introducing OMBLIGO, new label debuts album from dubstep and electronica artist Guajira+free download

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 7, 2010 by J.D.

OMBLIGO proudly presents…Guajira – Aguardiente LP
A powerhouse of dubstep, rock, and Latin music

ARTIST: Guajira
TITLE: Aguardiente LP
LABEL: Ombligo
RELEASE DATE: October, 18th 2010

Formed last Christmas after an impromptu studio jam, Guajira kicks off the newly formed Ombligo imprint with a debut album that defies comparisons. The core of the band includes the best of the Mexico City techno scene – Signal Deluxe’s Jerga and Valeria as well as Monopolar and Razz of Pantamuzik. Together they’ve concocted a hybrid of electronica, Latin music, and guitar psychedelia that combines the forward thinking elements of techno music with the grittiness of an alternative rock band. According to Monopolar, the main idea [was] to deliver an honest album from Latin-American musicians that love USA/European electronic music. We want to be really rooted on what we are, to show that we come from a musically rich part of the world, to reflect the music we hear everyday in our everyday life. But at the same time we reject all kind of clichés associated with the “latino” rhythmic thing. So basically our compositions try to show that balance. We invited singers and lyricists that belong to very authentic underground scenes in Peru and Mexico, so the lyrics also speak about identity, fears and hopes of our society.” The result is an album that stretches beyond national boundaries and taps into the timeless universal that is music’s greatest gift and still manages to grab listeners by the rump and shake it.

“Guajira is something really blended. Mexico and Argentina are (along with Chile) the least African-influenced countries in América, so it’s natural that Signal and Razz have no black elements in their compositions and playing. What I brought to the Guajira’s sound as a Peruvian is the syncopated use of cajón and its very recognizable wooden sound on the tracks “Colibrí “and “Perla” and the “reggaeton/cumbia” pattern on “Atiza”, “Guajira”, and “Isadora”, heavily processed through the electronic sensibility of Jerga and Valeria [SIGNAL DELUXE]. Besides that, a lot of elements from Peruvian music show up along the record (the voices and the lyrics, the use of charango, a little Andean guitar on “Colibrí” and “Tamarindo”). “Tierra Roja” samples a Brazilian Amazonic Indian speaking about deforestation and “Atiza” and “Macondo” both sample Zapatista leaders. In the end, Guajira is really a tight mix of many, many elements that reflect actually how different we are among Latin Americans from different countries and how Mexico can become a sort of melting pot.” – Humberto Polar

GUAJIRA is an electronic band hailing from Mexico City featuring Humberto Polar (Monopolar) (guitar), Jerga (Signal Deluxe) (bass), Valeria (Signal Deluxe) (keyboards and electronics), and Pablo Orsolini (Razz) (percussion). GUAJIRA is a word that can be understood anywhere in Latin America, even though its meaning can change from country to country. GUAJIRA is also the name of a new project in which four talented musicians from three different countries join their skills.

Rita Indiana(Debut EP on Dutty Artz July 6th prod.Rupture & Shadetek)(Official Video+MP3)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 2, 2010 by J.D.

Dutty Artz is very pleased to announce the debut official release from Dominican underground superstar Rita Indiana.  For those unfamiliar with Rita’s vibe download her La Hora De Volver here, courtesy of Remezcla.  

The main reference points for this single, No Ta Llevando El Diablo / Los Poderes (The Devil’s Takin’ Us Away / Powers) are merengue, mambo de la calle, punk rock, and tropical club pioneered by Dutty Artz. “No Ta Llevando” clocks in at a breakneck 185 beats-per-minute. It’s a ferociously catchy punk-mambo where güira scrapes and eerie synths compete with overdriven guitars as Rita Indiana’s imagistic lyrics paint a picture of social decay. Grannies living in trash, kids smoking rock: her dark scenes get transformed into a hearty lust for life in true santeria/voodoo fashion. Recorded with Los Misterios in the DR and produced by Rupture & Shadetek in Brooklyn.

The release will be available July 6th in all fine digital retailers including iTunes, Juno, Amazon and Boomkat.  In the meantime, soak your eyes in these:

Produced, remixed, mashed-up, meshed, filtered & bastardized! This is how El Remolón’s mixtape emerges onto the scene, gathering all the insane ideas that stir up the dance floor at Zizek Club in Buenos Aires & that will tour across the world during June through August amidst a frenzy of dancing.

El Remolón has us dancing to his trademark slow cumbias, later guiding us along new electro reggaetons that defy the forces of gravity & finally leading us to his new dubsteps & latin kuduros with mega bass…all without losing his hypnotic & groovy essence.

This is just a taste of what’s to come on his next album & EP, both of which will be released by ZZK Records later this year.

A quick glance at the playlist is enough to show that variety’s where all the fun is…very ZIZEK!
The Fader Mag says:
“forging new paths for tropical music and helping to ensure the longevity of an important Latin cultural art.”

ZZK Records (Buenos Aires) Releases Fauna & Lagartijeando EPs

Posted in Promotions with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 31, 2010 by J.D.

ZZK Records is pleased to announce the digital releases of two EPs that push the ZZK Sound into new sonic territories.

1st up is Fauna’s EP La Manita de Fauna with 4 exclusive instrumentals and 2 remixes by heavyweights and ZZK fam Poirier & Douster.

Turntable Lab had this to say about La Manita de Fauna EP:

“Fauna is a crew of producers and MCs hailing from Mendoza, Argentina. At the forefront of the digital cumbia scene, Fauna describe their style as “Cumbia from the Jungle” and is characterized by the heavy bass sounds you’d normally associate with Baile Funk or even fidget house. This EP opens with a remix by the ever-versatile Ghislain Porier(1). His remix of “Gauchito Gil” is an immediate banger, low bpms never sounded so fierce. Flip to the b-side for three instrumental originals(2,3,4) and you really get a sense of how original this music really is (Sounds like if you dropped a shipment of 90s era drum machines and synths in a gypsy colony and came back 10 years later to hear the results). Also includes a remix by Douster(5).”

Now available digitally everywhere!
Incl. Juno,iTunes..

Next up is Lagartijeando’s debut EP – Neobailongo.

Lagartijeando pushes the label into new territories, using Cumbia as a starting point but meshing more roots and obscure sounds with South American rhythms like chacareras, huaynos, and vidalas, mixed with heavy bass and “hyper-active synth melodies” (SF Weekly)

Boomkat said of Neobailongo:

Heavyweight plate of Nueva Cumbia Argentina and mutant Reggaeton styles from Lagartijeando on the awesome ZZK label. If you haven’t checked this label yet you really need to pay them some close attention. Their drops from Chancha Via Circuito, Fauna and Poirier are among some of the wildest dancefloor fusions we’ve heard in years and these six tracks from Lagartijeando commendably uphold that tradition. The low-flying club missile ‘Neobailongo En El Club Sarmiento’ skims battys with darkside rave synths and tumbling carnival percussion at 100bpm, while the pacy ‘Zindud’ jacks mad accordians over ghetto-house beats ‘n bass and his remix of Doña Maria’s ‘El Pescador’ tears it up in extreme slo-motion. Anyone with a taste for raw, modern pan-global ghetto musics should be on this immediately!

Listen to the EP & look out for it’s official release on April 6th.

Pre-order this heat at Juno!

This weekend’s Zizek bash features a new genre : 8-bit Cumbia Dubstep (or Cumbiastep as it’s being called)
