Xochiquetzal Baila is a collection of four playful tracks that bring together some of that Mexican Kitsch into your ears through deep bass, tight electronic percussion and trippy melodies, ready for dancefloors in outer space and beyond! Mixing a bit of everything between 80s electro, funk, soukous, grunge and cumbia, this is a journey into cosmic fusion and otherworldliness for hot summer nights and rainy days alike.
Xochiquetzal Baila and Perdidos are transatlantic collaborations respectively with Buenos Aires producer Don Plok, from the formidable Guateque crew in Zona Sur, and Aranemi, from Latin Bass Records Mexico in Aguascalientes. Both tracks are filled with magic, humour and alien tech wizardry.
Chiquita Brutal is a naughty little number full of grumbly bass and analogue twitches at every turn.
The Black Hole Sun interpretation is made in memory of all those sulky teenage afternoons spent living with the voice of Chris Cornell, may he rest in tropical heaven. All made with global love, for you!
The album was mastered by our brother in arms and super talented Tribilin Sound in Peru, and the awesome psychedelic image depicting the myth of Xochiquetzal was made by Spanish-born, Bristol-based, wonderful illustrator Marta Zu (www.facebook.com/martazubieta)
