Asimétrico. El Remolón
In Asimétrico, El Remolón presents its new sounds. Native acoustics in organic electronic spaces, successful collaborations, instrumental passages, meditative trance and invitation to movement.
After several years of introspection and studio silence, El Remolón is back with a premiere album. Searching within, in chance haphazard and error, the unfinished or simply imperfect sounds , El Remolón elaborates another sonic horizon that requires putting aside already rehearsed formulas, highlighted labels, closed categories. In this inquiry, the artist even abandons his own ways and closed shapes in Asimétrico. An album that maintains the contagious force of its danceable rhythms and at times delves into a more introspective universe, linked to contemplation.
With folkloric elements in minimalist mode and careful organic electronics, Asimétrico delivers ten crisp pieces that feature Andrés Oddone’s master touch in the mix. Simple uses of guitars, legüeros bass drums and charangos are interspersed in criollos ( southamerican folk) riffs that are reminiscent of Atahualpa and, when combined with electronic textures, they generate a restorative, meditative and techno atmosphere at the same time. Between the experimental native and the global downtempo, the album features several songs that follow one another as emotional passages. This is where Asimétrico is enriched with the collaborations of Luvi Torres / Klik & Frik, Pol Nada, Lauphan, Nuriah and the revelation of the urban coplero Brawlio. Meanwhile, the collaborations with San Ignacio, Leo Silcan and Cuervo Cuervo go deep into a more electronic and instrumental facet. The cover and photos are made by @ancherama.
El Remolón is the alter ego of Andrés Schteingart, an electronic music producer who experiments with Latin American folk rhythms. He was part of the beginnings of the Zizek collective and is one of the pioneers of the movement called Digital Cumbia . He currently directs the Fértil Discos label, a platform through which he publishes artists who explore Latin American electronics and organizes events with the imprint of the label. He has released 9 titles between albums and EPs and has made countless artistic collaborations. For 10 years he has traveled the West with his frequent tours, playing in clubs and festivals in more than 100 cities. It has been selected to participate in world fairs such as WOMEX, FIM in Guadalajara, SIM Sao Paulo or the SPOT Festival in Denmark. He collaborated with artists such as Pablo Lescano (Damas Gratis), Li Saumet (Bomba Estéreo), Ale Sergi (Miranda!), Gotan Project, Luzmila Carpio and even with the teenage Peruvian YouTube sensation Wendy Sulca.
