My long lost friend Greg Ryan just suggested that I take a listen to Matanza. Matanza are from Santiago de Chile and are producing some amazing house music with a taste of Andean and Tropical sounds. I love house music that incorporates local folk sounds and this is one of the best examples of this style of music. Two thirds of Matanza, Vicente and Spec, are former hip hop turntablists who fell for house music, while the other member, Rodrigo, brought the “Andean Flow”. Their aim was to produce music “that would make even the dead dance”. This stuff is certified hot dope!
Check out the label that Matanza are on, Antartek Records, for some more great sounds!
