Waxploitation Artists and ZZK Records present the launch of their latest brainchild, Future Sounds of Buenos Aires.
A few years ago you would have thought it impossible to hear a Norwegian say “I love cumbia” or watch a New Yorker dance chacarera. But now thanks to ZZK Records and their global bass counterparts worldwide, South American cumbia beats and Argentine folklore are major players on the urban music map across the globe.
ZZK Records is independent record label based in Buenos Aires that has been expanding the borders of Argentine music for the past 4 years. FSOBA is an album compiling the key players in the Argentine electronic scene that are famous for revolutionizing traditional music from the roots of South America by updating it to the digital world of 2012 in which we live.
FSOBA is a project that draws on an international and multi-media digital arts platform, including the hottest tracks from the Buenos Aires urban underground to cross-continental collaborations, remixes, videoclips, international concerts in Buenos Aires, and a variety of encounters between artists from all over the world interacting with and getting involved in the electronic scene in Buenos Aires in Argentina and from abroad.
The album contains tracks from all star producers and bands including Chancha via Circuito, Mati Zundel, Frikstailers, Super Guachin, Fauna, La Yegros, Tremor, El Remolón featuring Lido Pimienta, King Coya, The Peronists, El Trip Selector and Daleduro. FSOBA is an official presentation of the Buenos Aires electronic underground to the world through a wild dance party of twelve hard hitting tracks from past, present and future.
