Nicola Cruz is releasing the remixed version of his critically acclaimed album 2015, Prender el Alma. It will be released on June 10th on ZZK Records, and features remixes by 12 artists including label-mates History of Colour (El Buho & Barrio Lindo), Chancha Via Circuito, and sister label-mate EVHA.
Inspired by electronic music techniques and local Andean music and culture, Cruz created the original sounds in Prender al Alma layer by layer, instrument by instrument, drum by drum. A cast of eclectic Latin American artists seamlessly pick up where Nicola left off, adding their unique flavor to each individual track. Since the release of the original album in October of 2015, Cruz has been crisscrossing the globe, touring relentlessly. His music has been frequently featured on KCRW, KEXP and FIP. Prender El Alma Remixed comes out just days before his debut set at Sonar Festival in Barcelona and ahead of his forthcoming North American tour.
