Download: Camileazy’s “Se Fue”

Camileazy curves a trifling lover with mutant merengue on upcoming album’s first single.

Camileazy has been making his mark on Chilean hip-hop for a minute now. As one half of the group Zonora Point, he and partner Jamez Manuel put out a series of hits, many focusing on la vida cotidiana – partying with friends and odes to the fairer sex, like 2010’s “Huachita Rica,” which Zonora collaborator Douster built with micro samples from Rob Base & DJ E-Z Rock’s “It Takes Two.”

The two have since started focusing on solo projects, though they link on the regular for appearances. They continue to deliver solid streams of the blend of hip-hop, trap, and reggaeton that have gotten them in trouble with purists.

Camileazy, for one, is untroubled about such criticism. “Being so strict [about musical genres] makes it difficult to move away from where you’re at,” he said in a 2015 interview with Noisey Mexico. “Music isn’t a dogma or anything like that, it’s an instrument to be able to distract yourself, have fun, play, dance.”

Santiago producer Eterdrink gives “Se Fue” a more upbeat feel than Prince of Persa 2, Camileazy’s trap-tinged release from earlier this year. A delicate, mutant merengue típico loop brings to mind a man dancing through the space left by a trifling lover. Camileazy even manages to drop some legendary bars for all the quisqueyanos out there: “Me como su toto como si fuera el pan.” The matter-of-fact, sing-song chorus was released with the help of power team of NWLA and trap label Fiebre41, who have been responsible for a host of new singles from the Chilean hip-hop hornet’s nest, including Young Cister’s moody breakup anthem “Donde Estás.”

“Se Fue” will appear on Camileazy’s upcoming album Alone, set to drop on NWLA.

Bienvenido Marmota

Uno de mis personajes favoritos del "Midnight in Mexico City" continuum es Paul Marmota. Claro, el guiño va a "Midnight in Paris", pues en ésta deambula una diversidad de personajes indelebles en nuestras vidas, y del mismo modo que Adriana de Burdeos, Hemingway, Dalí o Buñuel en el imaginario de Woody Allen, acá en el ghetto chilango, Paul Marmota, también surgió de la media noche sin precedentes...
