New Weird Latin America

My mind is currently being blown by these tribal, bassy house tracks by Mama Testa feat. Paul Marmota and Zut Zut. They both can be found on the Mulata/Haina EP released earlier this month. South America has been impressing me lately; Nicholas Jaar is based out of Chile, and Adrián Méndez (who is Mama Testa) is Franco-Mexican. Dig!

Cloud Boat

Sounds like Burial but less dark and with live instruments- these guys are touring with James Blake right now.

Sorry for the lack of updates, albeit, I swear I have a completely benign excuse! I have been travelling a bit to New York City, Portland, The Redwood Forest, Big Sur, San Francisco, L.A. and then to the almighty BLACK ROCK CITY. To finish things off I had an odd 24 hour decompression in Las Vegas before returning safe and sound to Toronto.

The Playa treated me like a bar of gold this year. Saturn, our reliable vessel, transported some absolutely wonderful companions (some old, some new) and myself on a fabulous journey full of discovery, adventure, challenge and constant soul searching. Special thanks to Alla, Jaca, Treymor, Wolf, Air, Rocky, Lamb Cunt and Rye Toast.

We were here. We were there. We will be again.
