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.

Infinito Corazón presenta “Her”

Hace un año, quizá más, Adrián Méndez aka El Primis de alguna manera mágica consiguió que produjeramos videoclips para la disquera extranjera, BYRSLF Division. Desde entonces, la idea de realizar videos para productores foráneos y disqueras en otros continentes nos parece sublime. México para el mundo.
