Electropical, Pt. 3

A 4 track tropicalia ep (20m 53s) — released July 12th 2019 on Imagenes

The Afro-Latin connections of Venezuela's coastal region meet London based producers Juan Laya & Jorge Montiel, for the 3rd edition of their latest musical venture: Electropical.

Jorge travels to Bolivar Film Studios - Caracas / Venezuela for a 2 days musical experimentation & recordings, accompanied by some of the heaviest players in town, including no other than Mr Spiteri himself, J Pulia Liendo (Ex Pianist of Dimension Latina), and the emblematic Afro-Latin Drum ensemble: Grupo Madera, (between others) for the making of the tunes: "San Juan & Electropical".

As a perfect complement for the A side of this record, the studio work gets continued back in London at Imagenes Recordings batcave, for the making of the Afro-Funky-Jazz conveyor of: "Spacial Paradise" plus an updated mix of their classic rework "Sexmachina".
