One of the most sincerely esteemed artists on the ZZK label roster, Argentina’s Chancha Via Circuito filters folkloric rhythms through modern production and future-leaning sensibilities. His sophomore album, 2011′s psychedelic Rio Arriba, soothed the soul and sparked the imagination with its smooth mix of organic and electronic sounds. Also, it got a lot of people talking about the young producer, known to some as Pedro Canale.
So, get amped, if you aren’t already, for Chancha’s next offering … because it’s here! Literally. We’re premiering it. Available now as a free download straight from ZZK, the five tracks on his Semillas EP make you feel like it’s Saturday night and you are unwinding in the hippest neighborhood in the rainforest. “Vaina” is already our jam for at least the rest of the year. Stream the whole thing now and listen for samples from Michael Jackson and The Zombies:
