Raúl Monsalve y los Forajidos – Bichos remixes
Olindo Records proudly presents two fresh takes on songs from Raúl Monsalve y los Forajidos critically acclaimed ‘Bichos’ album by a pair of up and coming Venezuelan artists.
First up, Mexico-based drummer and producer Orestes Gomez revisits the album’s lead single, Bocón featuring Luzmira Zerpa, by passing it through a neo-soul and contemporary jazz lens alongside a cast of exciting sidemen, including bassist Daniel Briceño (La Vida Boheme) and flautist Eric Chacón (Tony Succar / Miguel Siso).
On the B-Side, Miami-based Venezonix aka Andres Ponce, fresh off fusing Afro Venezuelan instruments and rhythms with electronic music on his debut EP for Nacional Records, takes the Chimurenga-inspired “La Pulga” on a futuristic trip by adding a pulsating drum machine beat and synths. The instrumental version is included in the digital release.
