ZZK NEWS JUNE 2013

Where to begin?  Let's rewind for a moment. ZZK just celebrated it's 5th year. 5 years, woah. What started with a compilation of tracks coming out of a weekly dance party in Buenos Aires has developed into something beyond our wildest dreams.  And we're just getting warmed up!

Some notable happenings in ZZK-landia.

ZZK NEWS JUNE 2013

1. La Yegros, debut album is coming out worldwide on June 17!

After years of development and preparation at the hands of King Coya & Daniel Martin, the moment has arrived.   And we're putting it out in France with a major label, EMI France!   We couldn't have predicted the success of her first single, Viene de Mi, from the Future Sounds of Buenos Aires album.  But when a good song hits, it takes on a life of it's own.  La Yegros recent European tour (which we recorded every moment for ZZKTV and a tour documentary!) was beyond expectations.  Mulheim, Utrecht, Istanbul & Paris were special shows, seeds were planted, watch them grow!  The show in Paris was the crowning moment, the crowd at Les Nuits Zebree, Radio Nova's (who broke the song in France) night at Le Bataclan was absolute magic.  It's been a long time coming for La Yegros, it's her moment, and we couldn't be happier to accompany her on the ride.  Her debut music video just dropped too, and it's insane!

2. New albums, new albums, new albums!

Who would have thought that we went from a dance party compilation to scoring a documentary about the gritty side of boxing in Buenos Aires?  El Remolon did, and we have the pleasure of releasing his soundtrack to Boxeo Constitucion.  The music accompanies the struggles of it’s protagonists and conjours up images of their daily challenges and triumphs, of their passions and travails.

In the studio currently are Chancha Via Circuito, Mati Zundel, El Remolon & Super Guachin are all working on new LP's.

3. ZZK Sound Vol. 3 is coming out on July 1!

Featuring exclusive tracks from a slew of new producers, as well as some of the stable crew, we are very excited to unleash this moment in Latintronica to the world.  Curated by DJ Nim, there’s a darker, last hour of the club feel to it, everybody sweaty and grooving to deep bassy cumbia infested tracks. Go download the first single from Friktailers here.  There's some amazing bonus tracks coming too, stay tuned!

CHANCHA VIA CIRCUITO CONTRIBUTES SONG TO SUB POP 1000 Add to Facebook link Add to Twitter link

CHANCHA VIA CIRCUITO CONTRIBUTES SONG TO SUB POP 1000

 

Chancha Via Circuito Contributes Song to Sub Pop 1000; Prepares next ZZK/Waxploitation Album

In the middle of his tour, Chancha Via Circuito has been putting the finishing touches on songs for the follow up to his 2011 release “Rio Arriba”. The new album, entitled "Para el Mundo Nuevo" is slated for a late 2013/early 2014 release.

In addition, Sub Pop has tapped Chancha Via Circuito for an exclusive song for Sub Pop 1000, the highly anticipated compilation from the legendary label.

Chancha is contributing the song “Lacandona” to the album, which comes in a strictly limited edition vinyl pressing of 5,000 with a fat booklet and cover art by Nathan Fox and an exclusive image by Paula Duro.

Chancha sits alongside other cult artists such as Peaking Lights, Protomartyr, and His Electro Blue Voice on the album, to be released on Record Store Day.

Chancha Via Circuito’s music is a unique blend of old school South American beats and 21st-century electronics. Trance-like, but intensely rhythmic, his sound has been likened to a cumbia version of Burial, in that (in Pitchfork’s words) it’s “informed by dance music more than it actually functions as dance music”.

 

Tracklist:
1. His Electro Blue Voice - "Kidult"
2. Chancha Via Circuito - "Lacandona"
3. Protomartyr - "French Poet"
4. Lori Goldston - "Tangled North"
5. Iron Lung - "A Victory For Polio"
6. Soldiers Of Fortune - "Money"
7. Peaking Lights - "Subterranean Brainblow"
8. Ed Schrader's Music Beat - "Radio Eyes"
9. My Disco - "Guided"
10. Starred - "Doomed"

FRIKSTAILERS - EN SON DE PAZ

ARGENTINIAN DUO RELEASE OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD DEBUT ALBUM

Frikstailers are set to release their debut LP En Son De Paz on ZZK Records (Kartel) on February 25th, 2013.

Frikstailers (pronounced freak-stylers) rose from the eclectic Buenos Aires cumbia scene, turning the genre on its head with their unique style that saw Fader magazine describe them as “cumbia circuit-bent through neon dance tunes that interpret the most electric side of South America.”

Bringing their inimitable brand of South American rhythm to London in December, they headlined the taste-making Boiler Room and played a hyper-animated show at the New Empowering Church.

The duo of Rafa Caivano and Lisandro Sona recorded En Son De Paz in Mexico City where they now reside.

Their first release, the Bicho de Luz EP garnered critical acclaim, with Resident Advisor describing them as having taken  “a sound as old and ‘Western’ as hip-hop and fleshed it out brilliantly with regional touches.”

Notching up further plaudits via their inclusion on Modeselektor’s recent Modeselektion Vol.2 and the just-released Future Sounds of Buenos Aires compilation, the Frikstailers are primed for the inter-planetary big time.
