J//OAKYN

    On a summer day, you are sitting on the park waiting the minutes to pass, for the shadow to come and lay down your skate without bigger concerns. You lit a cigarrete and watch on the horizon some rappers. It’s logical…you know what they will do. Beyond there a group of students drinking some beers are evading legality. The homeless is dragging his midday collection. A dog comes to you and you think: “I have nothing to offer but a cigarette and my company. The dog stays. The buses, the people, your friends, the pilsen and one or another joint to liven up the afternoon. The street, your ecosystem. J//OAKYN portrays his beats on daily figures from the street life. We are talking of such daily portrays, like kicking the ground on your skate, talking about nothing with your friends or run to evade the “pacos”. Even though your mental and daily images connect with thing we are all capable to see, is in the abstraction of this young man from Concepción, that gives some maximized value, sounding nostalgic and so dense.

The Dagger Complex

There are places and sounds that are waiting for us. The routine of the cities pretend to generate a monotonous system that takes you and drags you. Something like a sea of noise, saturating our ears with unrecognizable sounds and many times, called silence. However, there is a bottle floating in this ocean, waiting to be found by those who are able to stop, watch and breathe. Then…you know what is established, you know what will happen and you know the “rules” of your routine. Maybe now is time to open that bottle and wonder with something new that has benn always waiting for you.

Linares Nro.9

Like a composition of random landscapes and a variety of sounds that surround you, letting you out and letting you in without even moving a foot. Going back home, in your room or riding your bike. Linares Nro. 9 will catch you like a Valparaíso labirynthical streets, where you don´t know what will be at the end, and it simply opens while you move forward in every song. Linares Nro. 9 borns when 2014 ends, with Antonio Duarte (Vocals, Guitar), Valentina Peña (Drums) and Cristián Pereira (Bass).

Los Bárbara Blade

Barbara Blade was a character in a terrible commercial deodorant. Something like a Lara Croft shaving her armpits with a knife. So, when you hear the name of the band you understand from the beginning that the thing is not going to go down a very traditional way. Then you start to listen to them and you do not know if you do not understand anything or start to understand the name a little more. You feel as if you’ve gotten a handful of beats and put them in a mixer to the max. With you inside. And with some or another pill, probably not Vitamin C, as they named one of their songs. Electronic, tribal rhythms, cumbia, ragamuffin, anyway, no matter how you listen to them in your house, you are going to want to be in a disc drowned in a sea of ​​bodies that shake, giving life. It’s difficult to cross the line of popular today. And it’s more difficult to go several more lines. But it is the only way to achieve a result as strange as unique. Exportable, importable, renewable and dance on the table. Bravo LBB, now I understand the world less but who […]

DUMO

If we go to the essence of Punk music (linked to HxC) we realize that everything is hate, attitude and truth. The most sincere music directed in missile mode to the sleeping arteries of your brain. Those that makes you to question everything, want to kick and jump from a second floor to a mass of people who are in the same line as you. When you listen to a Dumo no longer matters the integrity, the volume or the consequences that you can live after the Punk experience. Sebastian and Alejandro … Yes, it’s hard to believe it’s two people’s music. They create lysergic and heavy bass, driven by a battery that is difficult to define; Without a constant rhythm and that the transport by a heavy roller coaster that transits by a strange road and coherent at the same time. Watch out for voices that seem to come from another dimension and as souls on the road, accompany you throughout your journey. Detailedly composed and well done, launched in noisy fashion and with acid touches, is the proposal called Flamingo Rose. Second album that comes to confirm an id / entity called DUMO. Durmo is: Sebastian Jana: Bass […]

Abismo

Alternative Hip Hop from Valparaiso, how cool that sounds? Is Abismo, slicing his rhymes with no mercy. An interesting approach to a genre ready to take the next step. Making a stand where the streets and innovation can peaceful collide. Sorry, did I say peaceful? In this dimension maybe, cause Abismo’s rap is clearly coming from another parallel reality. Rap so intricate as the streets and hills that watch him born. In a collaboration between beatmakers like Fkrpr and Gumo, (that we are glad that happened), Abismo present us a collage of influences so mixed up that is hard to tell which one is there. Taking the underground to a dark parking lot, beat him the hell up of it and then sending it home with the best impression of that night. Valpo Estado Mental is his first album and we have only but good vibes to what comes next. And as anyone who has been on Valparaiso and has met its people, you know that is only a question of time when something notorious born from the port city.

Cholita Sound

It´s difficult to define Cholita Sound. Her music is a mixture of lyrics, rhythms, places, visual, aesthetic, that opens a wardrobe in your head to find it in the bottom of it a new world full of psychedelia and powerful rhythms. A place where your grid definition of music has no place and where you expect to find everything, because you can really find anything. A unique and free place. It is a mixture of latinpop, reggaeton, disco, tecnockish (if we try, unsuccessfully, to define it) is a kaleidoscope full of sensations. You feel like you’re on the altiplano, in a taxi, in a Bellavista discoteque, in Central America, in Miami, in the corner of the bar. It takes you into a chaos that you try to sort out and understand, but you can’t. All you have left is to get drunk with that hallucinogenic chaos, and lose yourself. And you enjoy it. Caterina Purdy a.k.a. Purdy Rocks is the real name of Cholita Sound. Visual artist. Singer. Producer. Creator of worlds. Reggaetonera. Teletransporter. Aesthetic adventurer. Rocker. Cumbiera. All together and nothing specific. And vice versa. Let’s get lost. Facebook • Soundcloud By: Sergio Negrier

Platillo Volador

[This is not a drill. I repeat. This is not a drill. I repeat, stop whatever the hell you were doing and evacuate your homes immediately].  [This is an emergency]. [Different sightings have been reported from all over the country]. [I repeat. This is an emergency] Flying saucers have arisen from Valparaiso, invading our soundcloud, youtube, bandcamp and media. The message? A record of nine songs remembering forever these events: En el cielo a las 20:00. It’s Platillo Volador, my dear terrestrial friends and they are coming to get you. Making Lo Orozco, album EP debut in 2014 and releasing new album in 2016 (“En el cielo a las 20:00”), Platillo Volador is getting their first recognition as one of the bands with projection in the country. But who cares about that? Music so off of this planet that expectations and recognitions simply doesn’t matter. It’s too terrestrial, man. And that’s why we love this kind sighting, in the middle of nowhere, with the darkest night upon you and the bright light of Platillo Volador leaving you blind and unconscious for three days. What happened in between? You’ll never know. Psychedelic ensemble, noisey aggrupation, lysergic tripulation, called them whatever you […]

MONOAZUL

Love has that moment where everything feels so good that no one can ruin your day. Not even the alarm clock in the morning or a warm beer, that gray bureucrat of always or the damn uncertainty of everything, It feels so good that you wish to hug that suited up executive, all bitter and packed up in the subway, and say to him, “i´ts okay man, everything’s gonna be alright. I’ts a matter of time”. The songs of MonoAzul speak escentially about love. And it feels exactly like that gold and shiny moment of love. Because their melodies are drops of lisergic acid, pulling you off that hole and putting a damn smile, wherever your are. Catchy tunes, simple-hearted lyrics and a teenage optimism. “Regalo”, their first EP is composed by four songs as four slaps to wake up and leave. Anywhere. Or as “Vacaciones” says: “Te hice un pan con mermelada / Te hice un jugo de manzana / Vamos a subir los cerros, que el día está bueno / Vamos a subir, estando juntos nada puede estar mal”. Well, that. Just music that hugs you and say; “i´ts okay, everything’s gonna be alright. I’ts just a matter […]

Zoológica

La Hierba Roja by Zoológica   Natural evolution. That’s the perfect concept to describe Zoológica and their last recorded work, La Hierba Roja. A fine example of how a band with a very  defined sound,  takes a leap away from their initial influences, and proceeds to create their own and attractive sound. A more mature approach to a more mature math rock. La Hierba Roja comes as one of the best surprises of the year. And yet, the seal of quality and dynamism in every track of the record remains the same over the years. Guitars dialoging between each other’s, restless drums, thunderous bass and eclectic voices are displayed in each of the four songs of the album.  Leaving always a sensation of wanting more from these caged animals. So, feel free to play Zoológica’s new gem and enjoy the shit out of their tunes. Zoológica are: Rodrigo Abarca on Vocals and Bass. Matías Ponce on Guitar. Andreas Schiefelbein on Vocals and Guitar. Luiz Zuñiga on Drums. Facebook / Bandcamp By  Francisco Cifuentes
