DOWNLOAD: Naked Geometry’s “The Missing 43 EP”

It hasn‘t been too long since Romeo C Alab, a.k.a. Naked Geometry, began sharing his particular breed of tracks with us. All the way from Ciudad Satélite in Mexico, we’ve listened closely to his mix of R&B samples, break beats, and hard-to-trace samples that create an electronic strain of tracks not often found within the Mexican music scene.

This time Naked Geometry presents a full EP honoring the 43 missing students from Ayotzinapa, featuring remixes from Paperworks, Cash Ride, Ninasonik, and Me & Myself. The Missing 43 EP includes two tracks, “Baby It‘s a Wild World“ and “Flirting,” both available for streaming here. The latter takes you through a smooth, chill mood, whereas the former brings you to an eerie, unsettling place.

Me & Myself manages to create a breakbeat-ish version of “Flirting” using those catchy arpeggios that can hold down almost any track. Ninasonik’s remix is not the first collaboration between these two producers, but the output differs from previous attempts by creating a more obscure version of “Baby It’s a Wildworld.” At some point during Cash Ride’s remix of “Baby It’s a Wildworld,” we can hear a sample of Omar García’s voice narrating his testimony of what happened on the day the disappearance happened.

The EP moves through lo-fi and–as Naked Geometry described them–future R&B sounds with bold social and political statements that make it difficult to stop listening once you’ve pressed play.

Mamicore: Coco

Conocí a Coco hace un par de años y platicamos vagamente sobre hacer una sesión de fotos pero entre la coordinación y la desidia no nos logramos juntar hasta una semana antes de que yo me mudara a DF. Nos citamos en un spot en el centro de la ciudad de Tijuana. Cuando nos vimos pasamos a una tienda a comprar cigarros y caminamos por los alrededores buscando un hotelito que funcionara para la sesión.

Saving Private Rafa

Encontrar el trabajo de Rafael Martínez, en realidad, no fue nada difícil. Ni siquiera una cuestión de suerte, sino de instinto. Sólo bastó seguir a Ewolivia y a Dani Shivers para luego descubrir la fotografía de este joven originario de Tijuana.
