Los Macuanos, a buzz-heavy trio that brings together traditional Latin rhythms with modern electronic dance beats, have announced their debut album “El Origen” will be released November 19th on Nacional Records.
The group has already been featured at NPR, PRI/BBC’s The World, MTV Iggy and Vice, who described them as the “Mexican Kraftwerk.” They also recently had 2 songs featured in Indio Beer ads
Los Macuanos belong to a generation of producers that came of age in a violent and rapidly-changing political climate in Tijuana, Mexico. Like many of their contemporaries, their productions echo a once hedonistic lifestyle, taking cues from the rave styles of the era, with elements of minimal techno, dubstep and glitch. Their music has since evolved with a more nuanced, stylistic approach that incorporates live instrumentation and elements of cumbia and norteño.
Los Macuanos' “Ritmo de Amor” is used as the theme song to a cutting-edge show on Seattle tastemaker station KEXP.
