Chilean andean-techno-shamans Matanza arrive on European shores for the first time next month playing a handful of shows and festivals. To coincide with their arrival the group have released Apolinar, a six track EP available for free download here through fresh faced Amsterdam based label Antartek.
Matanza – Apolinar (Daniel Klauser Remix)
Despite being only the third release from Antartek (the first two releases came from fellow Chilean tropicalist Daniel Klaüser), the label states that its mission is to “find the hidden talents of southern countries and expose them to the north”. Once more graphic design is also an integral part of the label with an emphasis on the interaction between graphic artists, video artists and the music. Going on the music and the graphic aesthetics, Antartek seems like a welcome addition to the increasingly crowded “international-tropical bass” scene.
