kebrada is releasing compilation Discos en 3/Cuartos on September 11, with preview track ‘Nick León – Luna Y Sol ft. Lila Tirando A Violeta’ premiering today on AQNB. Aimed at championing a new vanguard of Latin American musicians (including DJ Python, Siete Catorce, and DEBIT), the project invites artists to subvert conventional 4/4-time signatures.
Underscored by visceral moaning of Lila Tirando A Violeta, Nick Leóns ‘Luna Y Sol’ wanders through a topography of heavy drums and earthy samples. Voices and footsteps in the dirt puncture the percussion, evoking the funk of Lechuga Zafiro’s ‘Agua y Puerta’ or Elysia Crampton’s ‘Dummy Track’. The rhythms trail back and forth, pensively stirring about as if to withhold a sense of resolution.**
