CHBP Recap

A recap of sorts.. we have some more recaps coming this week, so stay tuned to the blog. I posted what I could off of Flickr. For photo credits and tons tons more photographs CLICK HERE!









It was by far an amazing weekend. Being able to play on mainstage with Mad Rad was breathtaking and one of my most joyous moments. Playing with Fresh Espresso at Neumos to close the weekend was an epic show! I never felt like Neumos could feel like a house party. I was also blessed to rock with Katie Kate at Members Only and Head Like A Kite, I am blessed to be surrounded by such talented people. I LOVE MY FRIENDS!

SPIN magazine, among tons of other press, had great things to say ("Seattle's Best Kept Secret") about us HERE.

MIA

I think she has a new album out? I don't know and I don't really care. But she's the talk of the world lately, and everyone seems to be having a listening party for her new CD. I also don't care for that. But this video is epic and should be watched if you haven't already.

ZZK Kickstarter - Help a Label Out from ZZK Records on Vimeo.



Now, they are calling on the internet once again, this time upping the ante and taking along a film crew to document their latest tour in hopes of putting the footage up on their newest idea, ZZK TV.

To make this happen ZZK is raising funds for the project. They have enlisted Kickstarter, a great Brooklyn based website for funding creative projects to donating as easy as buying on Amazon.com And, they are giving away rewards. Click here to be a part.

If you haven’t heard much about the record label, start here. ZZK has played an important contemporary role in the revitalization of South American culture for new global audiences, we invite you to listen to Chancha Via Circuito’s newest album which bridges music across generations, borders and time.

Chancha Via Circuito - Rio Arriba 2010 by zzkrecords

MEET THE ARTISTS


Tremor

Tremor is hands down one of the most exciting bands in all South America. There is a reason there is only one live band on the ZZK label, and seeing Tremor perform you will quickly understand why. Tremor is Leonardo Martinelli, a multi-instrumentalist and composer with ten years of experience scoring film and theater in Argentina. Together with Camilo Carabajal and Gerardo Farez, Tremor deftly combines IDM with the sound of Northern Argentina where guitars, drums and other instruments breathe to the beat of computer bleeps. Tremor performs live with native Argentine instruments like the charango guitar, the bombo legüero drum, keyboards and synthesizers. It might be easy to pass off Tremor’s sound as “cumbia digital,” but after one listen to his style and influence of native instruments and folklore – you will quickly realize he’s forging his own sub-genre – “digital folklorico.”


Chancha Via Circuito

Chancha Via Circuito is ZZK’s secret gem. As talented as producers come, Chancha Via Circuito is carving out his niche as a genre bending musical talent on the highest levels. When Diplo rolled through to play Zizek 3 years ago, it was Chancha’s CD that struck him first. Chancha Via Circuito explores the minimal side of digital cumbia with inspiration from afro-dance, murgas (marching bands), minimal dub, IDM, and down tempo. Computer bleeps share sonic space with folkloric chant. Candombe drums are accompanied by the sample of a machete splicing the air and a vocal line of indigenous bebop is layered over hints of dub.


El Remolón

If there were ever to be a superstar DJ in the digital-cumbia scene, it is El Remolón. El Remolón brings a global dance sensibility to digital cumbia, dubstep and electro-reggaeton cuts. With hypnotic beats influenced by everything from Colombian cumbia, cumbia villera (cumbia from the slums of Buenos Aires), and reggaeton to dubstep, dub, IDM, and minimal techno, El Remolón cuts his own vision of electronica for global dance floors. His sound is laid-back but heavy-hitting with a European dance floor sensibility. Listen to El Remolón's new EP Pangeatico Here


El G

EL G is the DJ name of Grant C. Dull, label manager of ZZK Records, co-founder of Zizek Club and a 6-year adopted citizen & cultural ambassador of Buenos Aires. DJ sets of El G are powerful showcases of ZZK music: past, present and future. B-Sides, mashups, bootlegs, official and unofficial releases plus the newest music from the ZZK label is tested on audiences during his fiery, eclectic and intensely fun DJ sets. El G has commandeered ZZK Records as a global movement, both behind the scenes and on the turntables at festivals like Coachella, Roskilde & Summer Stage in Central Park, NYC. El G also runs WhatsUpBuenosAires.com & FeatBA.com

Support a movement, be a part of a record label and get some new music and merch while you’re at it!

For the sake of good music, show these boys some love!

Treasure Fingers @ Say OK 7/14

Photobucket
For the past two years, the DJ and producer born Ashley Jones has been making it rain in the disco with innovative remixes and original tracks. Jones is far from a new jack, having racked up over a decade of international club experience and studio chops as part of the beloved drum & bass group, Evol Intent. Yet as Treasure Fingers, he’s found a way to merge his diverse influences and deep history into a signature sound, packed with intricate basslines, chopped-up, gritty synth melodies, and party-ready drum breaks. He'll be making a stop at Say OK next Wednesday & its gonna be some sexy nu disco sleez. Boom!
