I’ve been friends with the Pakapi Records
label based in Argentina, and with the great guys running it since 2014. It was instant experimental love! The VA I came across La Psicotropia,
changed my focus on new South American artists.
Now, they strike back with a fresh tape “Industrial Tropical
” and the title has all intentions stated in it!Joining forces with Was Ist Das
? label once again we are bound to listen to industrial music with a tropical flavor. Now this is quite a superb cocktail. Compiled by Juan Jose Calarco.
Whilst “La Psicotropia” took a psychedelic approach to modern electronic
cumbia music, “Industria Tropical” takes the classic early industrial
sound to South America. Think early Cabaret Voltaire, Front 242 and
Throbbing Gristle set to a tropical beat. The sunny beats of cumbia
& reggaeton soaking up the dark moods of European urban decay. It’s a
perfect culture clash…

ps. I really need to get to the bottom of every artist if I have time and make another massive Pakapi love post.
