Waxploitation Artists has announced they’ll be releasing a new project this Summer entitled Future Sounds of Buenos Aires. FSOBA is a collaboration featuring some of the most compelling artists emerging from Buenos Aires’ electronic underground.
Featuring contributions from Chancha Via Circuito, Mati Zundel, Frikstailers, Super Guachin, La Yegros, Tremor, El Remolon, King Coya, The Peronists, El Trip Selector, and Daleduro all coming together to create one entity called Future Sounds of Buenos Aires. The end result is a chronicle of the burgeoning experimental music scene in Buenos Aires. Pioneered by the visionary Latin American label ZZK, Buenos Aires’ music fuses classic rural South-American-style with electronic futurism, creating a style that’s wholly unique.
"ZZK is the first label to push the sound of Argentina from the villa (ghettos) to the uptown”, says Diplo, “ZZK is a big part in bringing this to the attention of the people.”
Much like what Detroit was to techno and Kingston was to dub and reggae, Buenos Aires is quickly becoming the focal point for this Latin American cultural movement. Future Sounds of Buenos Aires is the defining work of the new movement.
All of the artists are influenced by the combination of rural, traditional cumbia and folkloric roots mixed with a contemporary street-inspired sounds. The results offer twelve different interpretations of the past blended with the future.
