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.

FRIKTAILERS GUACHA EP AND RAPIDO EUROPEAN TOUR

This is happening.

Frikstailers are about to drop their 2nd ZZK EP, Guacha. With some fiery remixes by Los Reyes de la Milanga, Uproot Andy & Thornato.  For the occasion we've organized a quick stop over in Europe for some shows.  1st one up, the dopest internet party around, Boiler Room.  Internet phenomenon, force to be reckoned with, lineups that make you dance while cradling your laptop at home by yourself or with friends, rocking out to the beats.  Well, you get the point.

Next up is their real debut London show, cuz we can't guarantee you'll be able to get into the 1st one.  But this one is a proper warehouse party with Soundway Record's Batida and the queen of Carioca Bass from Zuzuka Poderosa.  After they finish with London, they're heading over to squat it out with the crew from Kako Da Ne in Utrecht.  Oh and then they're bouncing, like back to life, back to reality.  Just a quick little jaunt over the Atlantic to show some select crowds what 2013 has in store:  THEIR FIRST FULL LENGTH ALBUM - EN SON DE PAZ!

Bonus track!  Check out the XLR8R post where you can pick up a free remix by the titan Maga Bo!

FUTURE SOUNDS OF BUENOS AIRES IS HERE!

We are thrilled to launch Future Sounds of Buenos Aires this month as our first official European release! The compilation comes out on 5th November in Europe and November 20th in the US, and on double vinyl as well.

Already called by the LA Times as “A wildly inventive collection of Argentine music that's as funky and of-the-moment as any instrumental electronic dance music being made right now,” Future Sounds of Buenos Aires is a scene defining collection of rural South-American-styles fused with electronic futurism. The compilation is a snapshot of the burgeoning experimental electronic scene that has emerged in Buenos Aires over recent years, that we are excited to share with the world.

We teamed up a powerful duo of artists from both the US and Argentina for the album artwork and poster to represent the unique mix of South American and Western cultures represented in the project. Check out our new site with an interactive musical map of Argentina and bios of all of the artists! With your purchase of the CD, you also get a fold out copy of the map as a poster!
