You can sound Caribbean and simultaneously distant at the same time.
It is difficult to find that fine line of a hypothetical planetary tavern in which to find Latin sounds but it seems that Lagartijeando has its own spaceship among the table sounds to visit them and bring back the experience.
Argentina's Lagartijeando is releasing his new single "Sideral Cumbia," which is out now. It is the first release from his upcoming album due out in October on Wonderwheel Recordings.
The new song takes the listener to celestial levels, taking traditional cumbia vibes to the far reaches of space. The ethereal soundscape of "Sideral Cumbia" is accompanied by minimalist drums, a bouncing bass line, synth echoes and echoes, staccato guitar and even some mbira before momentarily returning to earth with a swelling horn section.
A triumphant return for Lagartijeando, known for pushing the boundaries of Latin, folk and electronic music.
Lagartijeando is the name of producer, musician and DJ Mati Zundel. Heavily influenced by his travels through Latin America, Mati's signature psychedelic dance tracks cling to everything from the traditional folk sounds of the Bolivian landscapes to the jungle rhythms of Brazil.
Mati hypnotically fuses his traditional influences (with an emphasis on shaman chanting and charango loops) with contemporary electronic beats, creating a sound that once left audiences speechless.
