Lata is one of those artists that I always have to keep tabs on. I never know what he’s up to next. Recently he told me he was focusing more on live performance with emphasis on live instrumentation, which excites me to know.

In ten days time his new musical efforts will be released by Caballito  called MAO!

I was fortunate thanks to Caballo, to preview the whole album. The music I witnessed is really very different than what we’re used to in the Tropical Bass scene. To label it Tropical Bass is a bit difficult with certain songs, you’ll have to make up your own mind when you finally listen to it. The album is dope though and really shows why Lata is such a unique artist.

To hold us over he has however given us a couple of teasers, which I can share with you now. First is as usual Lata tradition, a cryptic teaser video that gives absolutely nothing away except dates and URL’s.

And here is something a little more fair, a single from the album titled Never Ask Why feat. Trini Doherty, whose vocals by the way are quite lovely for the soul.

Look for MAO! out on July 25th.
