about

El Remolón y Chamigo Hugkleson presentan su último experimento electrónico en el que mezclan la ingeniería clásica de los sonidos house y techno al servicio de la energía latina.
Una maquina de ritmos 808 + un secuenciador de bajos 303 + 1 procesador de voces + synthes analógicos conforman un set de acid house tropical en vivo que fusiona ritmos cumbieros, el cuarteto argentino y dancehall generando un clima de puro baile y energía desenfrenada.
La particularidad del proyecto es que todo está producido en vivo, realizando loops en tiempo real, jugando con los clichés del acid house, de la cultura rave y de lo tropical.
Con su primer EP, “We Are”, Tropikal Ravers presentan distintas versiones del single “We Are Tropikal Ravers”. Junto con la original lanzan otras versiones que abarcan el espectro que va desde la instrumental con ritmo más cumbiero electrónico hasta una con sonido de house enérgico (“Manija Version”). Jugando con el inglés y el castellano, los TR fusionan culturas y estilos (lo rave electrónico con lo tropical latino).
Se destaca el tema “Manija”, el cual cobra energía mientras se desarrolla. La letra describe la palabra “manija”, utilizada actualmente en la jerga de argentina (originalmente de la cumbia villera) para decir que uno tiene muchas ganas de algo, así como también para denominar a alguien que tiene mucha energía y ganas de bailar. Así, el tema hace alusión a los estados frenéticos del baile asociado a la cultura rave.



El Remolón & Chamigo Hugkleson present their last electronic experiment in which they mix the classical sounds of House and Techno with the energy of Latin rhythms.
The live set is played with various hardware that emulate the sound of TR-808 and TR-909 drum machine and a TB-303 baseline sequencer; it also includes a voice processor and various analogue synths. The result is Tropical Acid House infused with Cumbia rhythms, the dynamics of Argentinian Cuarteto, and the Dembow of Dancehall. A music that creates a space of pure dance and uncontrolled energy.
The particularity of this project is that everything is generated live, creating loops in real time and playing with the clichés from Acid House, Rave culture and the “tropical”.
With their first EP, “We Are”, Tropikal Ravers presents different versions of their single “We Are Tropikal Ravers”. Together with the original version, they release other ones that cover the spectrum from an instrumental one with an electronic Cumbia rhythm to another one with energetic House sounds (“Manija Version”). Playing with two languages, Spanish and English, Tropikal Ravers fuses cultures and styles; the electronic “raver” with the Latin tropical.
A highlight of this album is the track “Manija”, which picks up momentum as it unfolds. The lyrics, in English and Spanish, describe the word’s usage in contemporary Argentinian slang (originally from the Cumbia Villera scene). It refers to an eagerness for something, but is also used to refer to somebody with a lot of energy and desire to dance. In this way the track makes allusion to the frenetic modes of dance associated to Rave culture, blending it with the tropical one.
