Destination Mexico via Argentina, Lithuania, France, Columbia… we return with another international groove showcase on our forever on-point V/A collection.
Now three editions deep, the eclectic wide-armed vibe is fast becoming a ‘Muy Duro’ signature as each of the five tracks – courtesy of new and old friends – takes us deep into different corners of the dancefloor.
Calypso co-founder Thomass Jackson and good friend Cornelius Doctor light the fire with 'Alcachofas'. The title translates to artichokes but the music translates to something much tastier. Imagine Blancmange produced by Black Strobe and you’re at the right banquet table. Elsewhere Lithuanian Roe Deer returns to the ‘Muy Duro’ series for a second time with the stalking, switchy, stripped back naked hip-wriggler ‘June’, while Mexicans Concret & Iñigo Vontier roll out a deliciously paranoid tech piece that can hunch backs at 20 paces and Martin Noise and Marzian get majestic with the super-creeper ‘Azucar Umbanda’… What begins as a dark creeper suddenly flips into a tribal monster when you least expect it.
Last but not least in this cosmic endurance race is Colombian Kabinett. Brand new to Duro, brand new to releases, this is his debut. And the second those human rhythmic elements and synth blasts hit you, you’ll understand why he’s been given the honour of closing this epic EP.
‘Muy Duro’, muy gusto, muy grande…
