WE ARE CROWDFUNDING THE LABEL GET INVOLVED!

Desperate times call for creative measures. And ladies and gents, here at ZZK Records, we’re not giving up.

Our predicament:  We’ve built an amazing platform to showcase some of the most innovative and incredible music coming out of Latin America today.  But we aren’t making ends meet financially.


In our now 7 years of existence we’ve helped some very special, talented, and relatively unknown artists, achieve what every artist needs: A platform on which to showcase their talents. From day one at ZZK we’ve aimed as high as possible. Ambitious much? Naaa, life is too short to not shoot for the stars.

Check it out here & here.

ZZK FILMS AVANT PREMIERE - A MUSICAL JOURNEY

About 5 days before La Yegros 1st European tour started, El G, riding on a double decker bus in London between tours, got an email.  It was movie director and friend Pablo Mensi who wrote: I got the funding!  I’ll meet you in Paris next week and we’re doing the documentary!

 

ZZK FILMS AVANT PREMIERE - A MUSICAL JOURNEY

El G (who says yes to everything if the energy is right) met up with Pablo the night before the tour started, drove to Frankfurt to pick up La Yegros and Pupa (who came on board as a cameraman) and the tour and documentary got underway. Everything happened very fast, La Yegros shows were beyond expectations for her 1st time in Europe, 3 weeks and hundreds of hours of footage happened, and we wrapped in Istanbul dancing to a Gilles Peterson DJ set under the Turkish night.

We are proud to announce the avant premiere of A Musical Journey is happening tomorrow at Cine Tonala in Mexico City, prior to La Yegros debut show in Mexico!

And just like that, ZZK Films was born.

8 YEARS ALREADY?  FEELS LIKE YESTERDAY

Zizek Club is about to turn 8 years old.  EIGHT! The party, which quickly turned into a "laboratory of dance", where the digital influences of cumbia, hip hop, dubstep or folklore were the dance music of that era, where musical and cultural prejudice were left at the door and where a ton of artists showed up to test their new ideas for dance, always dance.

8 years of adventures: from the first parties in San Telmo, to the intense nights at Niceto Club, the creation of ZZK Records, releasing original music from artists who nobody else thought to release, tours around the world, the artists and albums kept getting more and more interesting.

From a weekly party in Buenos Aires, ZZK expanded throughout the universe, its artists playing over 150 cities around the world, from Coachella to recent Boiler Room presentations.

Let’s celebrate one more time.  Saturday December 6, 2014. 8 years.

Click here for all the deets.

Go check out a gallery of Zizek Club flyers and swim in the nostalgia here!
