Following the release of her album Maleducada, Dat García brings together a group of Argentine artists specializing in mixing folklore and electronica for the first volume of remixes that ZZK Records will be releasing on October 13, giving some of the songs a parallel life. This compilation brings together remixes by six musicians and producers of select tracks from the record, which already marries styles as diverse as chacarera and trip hop. Another twist of the screw for the outstanding musical universe that Dat builds, full of Latin American rhythms in the digital melting pot. With this display of musical expression, it isn’t strange to find in these remixes a vast display of ideas taking new sound atmospheres; from ritual-psychedelic (“Canción de bañar la luna”) by Buenos Aires newcomer Pato Smink to a slow-burning 7 minute dance floor scorcher (Maleducada) by digital cumbia stalwart El Remolon, to the most frenetic and irresistible dance beats (“Anfibio”) by the Frikstailers new project Klik & Frik. A true sign that the digital folklore movement in Argentina is showing no sign of slowing down.
