ZZK RECORDS UNITES CONTINENTS WITH LATEST EP – Poirier’s Las Americas V.1 drops on February 16 2010.


BUENOS AIRES, ARG. (Feb. 8, 2010) – “Las Americas V.1,” the latest EP from Buenos Aires-based record label ZZK RECORDS is set for digital release next Tuesday, February 16.

Produced by Poirier, a DJ/producer from Montreal, “Las Americas” features a reggaeton-inspired track with vocals by Boogat.

The album, which also includes remixes from Uproot Andy, El Remolon, Lagartijeando, and Douster, is sure to unite Montreal and Buenos Aires as hermanos in music.

The collaboration between ZZK and Poirier began as other ZZK artists were en route to Coachella during last year’s North American tour. At coffee one day, Poirier described his new track, called “Kalima Shop Titi,” about the priest from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom to El G, ZZK’s manager and resident DJ. “Las Americas V.1” was born.

Now, South America’s most futuristic record label is expanding its sound, vision, and synchronicity with like-minded producers from around the world, 2010 version. You’ve heard people talking about World Music 2.0, Nu Whirled Music, Global Gettotech and other terms describing where urban bass music is headed. “Las Americas V.1” is your chance to experience it in all its cross-cultural glory.

This EP will also have a special edition vinyl coming out in the following weeks.

Preview & share the release here.

Poirier is Ghislain Poirier, a Montreal-based producer and DJ signed to Ninja Tune who draws from dancehall, soca, and electro to result in raw dance floor frenzy.

Uproot Andy is Andy Gillis, a Brooklyn producer without regards for geographical limitations. He is quickly establishing himself as a big remixer with a seriously fresh sound.

El Remolon is Andres Schtiengart, one of ZZK’s most dance floor hard hitters. His remix gives that cumbia villera (cumbia from the slums) touch that has made his productions famous.

Lagartijeando is ZZK’s newest producer on the label. Combining the most obscure South American folklorico with heavy bass, he debuts his first track on this EP.

Douster is ZZK’s 2009 breakthrough artist you might have seen recently on Sound Pelligrino, Mad Decent or on the blogosphere blowing up remixes like King of Africa.

“Las Americas V.1” is available for preorder on Juno here.
