Sin título

Behind MEXA’s recent success is the dual roles played by the label owners, Louie Fresco and Alexx Rubio. For the label’s latest outing, it’s Rubio himself who takes the reins, as he teams up with Mr.Fresco for a release that’s typical of the label: different, intriguing, eclectic and stunning from the first beat to the last.

It’s the majestic title-track that opens the EP, with its varied synths and its washy pads stirring up a track that joins the dots between home and club listening with distinction. A real tightrope walker, its straddles the genres but keeps our attention firmly intact thanks to its many unlikely tones – with even an electric guitar finding favour.

The first of three remixes arrives thanks to German producer Marc Poppcke. Poppcke opts for a different approach, with an intense range of percussion and a muffled, almost convoluted bassline among its prime moments. Daring but effective - it’s indicative of Poppcke at his most devastating.

Maher Daniel (another producer who’s really come to prominence of late), lets the drums do the talking on his off-kilter remix, before Nicola Cruz leads us on a late-night journey down the rabbit hole that’s filled with hypnotic melodies, whirling melodies and a multilayered vocal that breathes a tangible human edge into the track. It’s gorgeous stuff – and a fitting finale to a truly spectacular effort.

Va - Compilado LOCAL # 02

El objetivo de Local MX fue claro desde el comienzo: construir canales por medio de los cuales generar mayor repercusión para la nueva escena mexicana de música house y estilos aledaños.
Paso un año desde la publicación de “Compilado LOCAL # 01”, y realmente el rebote que tuvo ese disco en el público nos sorprendió. La edición en CD se nos escapó de entre las manos. Esos discos se distribuyeron de forma gratuita en eventos en distintos puntos del país con una velocidad que dio vértigo. La edición online ha tenido mas de 26000 escuchas y 6500 descargas.
Sabemos que Local MX es una partecita de un gran organismo que en poco tiempo ha demostrado buena salud, ya que varios de los artistas que formaron parte de ese primer intento hoy están completamente en otra situación, con participación crucial en sellos, clubes y festivales de distintas partes del mundo. Y eso tiene que ver con un avance claro en lo compositivo / sonoro. Con la evolución de su talento.
Estos músicos han crecido, manejan al 100% su propio lenguaje, y ahora van por más.
Por eso, el lanzamiento de “Compilado LOCAL # 02” es algo lógico y más que justificado. Es una segunda vuelta que busca reflejar y dejar plasmado en una imagen sonora el momento que transita la escena a nivel nacional.
