argenis brito and los updates. two of the most left -field exponents of chilean dance music armada get together on vinyl. argenis, born in venezuela, was given a chilean club passport by luciano, pier bucci and villalobos a long time ago due to his outstanding services as a producer, singer and overall party raiser. he met los updatess boss jorge gonzalez in new york in 1994, while attending a wu tang clan show. on this brand new release they offer >valparaiso< and >don t take candy from strangers<, you can smell the delicious scent of an instant classic emanating from the deeply grooved wax
