We’ve written a lot about the Portuguese bass underground as well as the Mexican avant-garde, two movements that are becoming ever more influential in shaping the music of tomorrow. Now they are coming together in the form of a collab between some of our absolute favourite ever producers: Siete Catorce and Bison & Squareffekt!
The idea for this track was born when Siete messaged Squareffekt that he was interested in a collab fusing African and prehispahic flavours. Bison and Squareffekt, already fans of Siete’s deep-dark 3ball, where immediately enthusiastic.
The track was built layer by layer from a midtempo afrobeat pattern and moves from dreamy synth pads to dark, apocalyptic ambient scapes, culminating in industrial distortion.
In the interview with THUMP Mexico, Squareffekt compares the idea behind the track to OnlyNow’s EP: a new wave of cyberpunk, in a global context, which shows that many of the dystopian-futuristic visions have already become a reality today.
