AFRO (PINK LP)
coloured 12" UK
afro was our first international release, and our first attempt to bring afro-peruvian music up to date in the same way as nicomedes santa cruz and others did decades ago when the fragile existence of this music was fading. we were very satisfied with the result, which is raw and acoustic but at the same time electronic. dark but soulful. deep and haunting at times. we are joined on this album by some of the finest afro-peruvian musicians on cajon, guitar and vocals giving every song a live feel and the album includes additional production on all tracks by nitin sawhney s and da lata s studio wizard toni economides.
12" lp UK
recorded in novalima s home studio in lima, their album “karimba” (hot iron used to mark the cattle, as well as the slaves) takes novalima music into new levels, introducing both new sounds and traditional rhythms like the panalivio, zamacueca, ingá and tondero, while maintaining their distinctive afro and dub sound. their reputation at home allowed them to work with two of the top traditional musicians in the city in what would be their last recorded performance: vocalists pepe vasquez, rosita guzman, and sofia buitron as well as guitarists roberto arguedas and felix casaverde (former guitarist of chabuca granda), in addition to members of the live band.
12" lp UK
as dancefloor-friendly as it is mystical, bienaventuranza is as chancha as it gets- with elements from cumbia to dancehall to andean folk to global house, crystal clear production, and collaborations that are evidently natural and genuine, the record holds true to the sound that canale has played such a huge part in creating. from a new generation of producers to more listeners in unassuming parts of the globe, pedro has been humbled to see the sound develop- and proves with this album that he s grown swiftly alongside it.
5 STAR MOTEL (LP)
12" lp UK
on “5 star motel”, that younger gitkin (henceforth referred to simply as gitkin) has sought to expand the philosophy he encountered on that tape. the guitar is common thread, the raft to navigate a sun-dappled stream of ideas. it’s an embrace of cultures where folkloric stringed instruments still rule, or where they ve led to a more recent embrace of the electric guitar. he traces the loose, meandering paths which join them together.
GRAND STREET FEAST (7 INCH)
new 7inch from the mysterious gitkin, who crisscrossed the us in the late 70s selling knockoff gibson guitars to the diverse & disparate groups of immigrants from all four corners of the globe who were coming to the us during the 2nd great migration. recycling and filtering the sounds he encountered through his own psychdelic lens, he created a sound rooted in other, but deeply his own. this single is taken from his forthcoming album, 5 star motel and features two tracks from the album grand street feast which charts a sand dusted, melodic funk misadventure, while cancion del rey has the sound of the peruvian chicha steady-moving, alluring, and lyrical winding its way through gitkins fuzz-filtered licks, and the rhythm underpinning.
12" lp UK
wonderwheel recordings is proud to present the first full-length album from producer robin perkins, aka el buho. balance represents a meeting of different currents that make up buho s music: a fascination with the natural world, and its protection, a fascination with the rhythms, traditions and sounds of latin america and a fascination with modern electronic music and production aesthetics. the album is peppered with cumbia, son jarocho, andean instrumentation & afro- colombian rhythms. mixed with this, robin integrates this idea of -nature music- - putting the sound of a misty forest, the songs of birds, of crunching leaves under foot or the rhythmic tapping of rain alongside synthesized sounds, electronic clicks or claps, deep basses. trying at once to give them their own space but in a new, surprising perspective - it draws electronic music into something more soft, natural, different and appealing. balance is also an album that celebrates community and collaboration, showcasing collaborations with ten different artists form latin america and beyond, both producers, instrumentalists and singers. including more of a lyrical presence than his previous eps, perkins solicited the participation of talented singers like dina al wedidi from cairo, luzmila carpio from bolivia and the incredible decimas of mexican poet citlaly malpica. the album also features the likes of harpist veronica valerio, argentine multi-instrumentalist rumo tumba, jarana player pablo emiliano from mexican son jarocho group semilla and members of the shika shika

EL GRAN PODER
lagartijeando is the name of producer, musician and dj mati zundel. born, raised and currently living in a small town on the outskirts of buenos aires called dolores. from a very early age, he was musically curious- experimenting with percussion, charango, guitar, bass, voice, and beyond. strongly influenced by his travels through latin america, mati s signature psychedelic dance tracks latch onto everything from traditional folk sounds from the bolivian altiplano to the jungle beats of brazil. mati hypnotically fuses his traditional influences (with an emphasis on shaman chant and charango loops) with contemporary electronic beats, creating a sound that once left npr speechless.
