M.A.K.U SoundSystem – Contra Tambor

NAMES YOU CAN TRUST

£11.50

Perhaps their rawest and darkest recordings to date, this stripped down quartet is an ode to the creative source of their core members, lead singer & bassist Juan Ospina, drummer Andres Jimenez and guitarist Camilo Rodriguez. The A-side, “Culebra Coral” is a snakebitten taste ofla cumbia, played with an experience and restraint that only enhances the end result. It’s a free driven approach born from familiar experimentation, rather than modern day trends — a singular jam, refined from years of playing together. Part psych, part cumbia, total MAKU. The B-side, “Contra Tambor,” is emblematic of the group’s roots in the traditional sounds of thetambora, a drum-forward percussive arrangement that follows Jimenez and Cañate on a free-driven approach to the ritualistic movements of the drums, this time drowned with an antidote of analog FX, synthesized glitches and atmospheric coros.
