FIRE AND REASON-
“SO ELECTRIC (R.O.A.R. REMIX)”
In the mood to get up and dance off your weight in sweat? Look no further than Brazilian Bella Saona and Ecuadorian Steve Narvaez, also known as The Fire and Reason! With their sexy, dirty electro-pop sounds, it’s impossible to resist tearing up the dance floor. Relatively new in the industry, this duo already show signs of strong anchors in their genre.
For newbies, you want to check out their other stuff, but you’ll know exactly what we’re talking about when you listen to “So Electric,” remixed by Steve , himself! If you like the remix, you might want to look up other songs remixed by Steve under the name, The R.O.A.R., his alias.
RODRIGO Y GABRIELA-
It’s been three years but it has made the wait worth it! With the release of their highly anticipated album, 11:11, Rodrigo y Gabriela are back, full of strong and heart-pounding guitar skills. Our favorite guitar-dynamic-duo have always paid homage to their metal and hard rock heroes, and on 11:11, they give thanks to specific artists that have influenced their work along the way: Carlos Santana, Michel Camino, Jimi Hendrix, and more.
With the launch of their new album, los mexicanos will be taking their irreplaceable lively show to several venues across the country.
“ZUZUKA PODEROSA LOVES RIVERSIDE(TOPIKILL MIXTAPE)”
Zuzuka Poderosa is a breath of fresh air in the international music scene. With her unapologetic and hot Portuguese lyrics, Brazilian-bred and Brooklyn-based Zuzuka will give you your daily dose of head-boppin’ and booty shakin’! Having DJ experience under the name of DJ Babyfresh, Zuzuka definitely knows what she’s talking about. Don’t be surprised to find her packing NY’s nightclubs with her latest mix and spinning rare vinyl records. Think M.I.A mixed with funk, electronic and some good ol’ traditional Brazilian percussion. Sound too good to be true? Check out this underground Brazilian powerhouse artist for yourself and listen to “Zuzuka Loves Riverside!”
“MEJOR (COPACABANA MIX)”
Talented graphic artist and musician, Argentinian one-man band, Cineplexx has been on the music scene for a while now. Writer, Vocalist, guitarist, bassist, percussionist and keyboardist, Sebastian Litmanovich also controls the secuences, synthezizers, sampler and even the tambourine! His latest album, Nuevahola, was released earlier in the spring which is good news for longtime fans and new listeners alike. With influences from the Velvet Underground and Abba, this particular album, Nuevahola, is in a way Cineplexx’s “second coming,” infused with new sounds and new collaborations such as Duglas Stewart (BMX Bandits) & Norman Blake (Teenage Fanclub), Federico Aubele, Natalia Clavier, Stuart Kidd (St. Deluxe), y otros amigos.
Our download feature this week, “Mejor (Copacabana Mix)” is the first single featuring Federico & Natalia. It’s very care-free sounding but the Copacabana Mix gives it that Latino-tropical kick to it. It’s definitely a song you want to listen to first to get a taste of the album and get lost into wonderful Latino-indie bliss.
Nothing for now in the U.S. but if you’re traveling to Barcelona, where Sebastian lives– you might want to check out miscelänea.
