Nueva música: Mexican Dubwiser lanza hoy en EEUU su tercer album Border Frequency

 

Desde que Mexican Dubwiser se trasladó a Los Angeles, CA de Monterrey, México en el 2001, El grupo ha desarrollado y evolucionado constantmente su propio sonido post futurista, una fusión de electrónica, dance music con ritmos tradicionales de Latino America y el Caribe, con hip hop, funk, rock y soul. El duo, conformado por Marcelo Tijerina y Ulises Lozano (KINKY) está ahora de regreso con su tercer álbum, el más ambicioso y sólido de todos hasta el momento, bajo el título "Border Frequency", llevando su propio concepto musical a otro nivel.

 

Desde la apertura del álbum con un track apto para discotecas y primer sencillo titualdo "Lecture Me" con la participación de Tito Fuentes (Molotov) y MC Self Provoked; hasta el último de los temas "Walk To The Future", una mezcla inspirada de hip hop y R&B, "Border Frequency" representa el siguiente paso del viaje sónico futurista de la banda, que cruza constantemente las fronteras entre géneros musicales contemporáneos y tradicionales.

 

Este es el primer álbum de Mexican Dubwiser lanzado en EEUU conjuntamente entre Kin Kon Records y The Music Joint y el primero que incluye temas principalmente en inglés. Producido por ambos, Ulises y Marcelo, y con notables colaboraciones de artistas de alto calibre tanto de México y los EEUU que incluye entre otros además de Tito y Self Provoked, a Randy Ebright de Molotov, Money Mark (productor y colaborador musical de los Beastie Boys y Beck), los cantantes de soul Katrina Blackstone y Myron Glasper y MC Natty Speaks.

 

Mexican Dubwiser estará celebrando el lanzamiento de "Border Frequency" con la banda completa y músicos invitados en dos conciertos importantes. El primero será el domingo 19 de marzo en el Festival Vive Latino, uno de los más grandes e importantes festivales de Latinoamerica; y el segundo en el Havana World Music Festival el sábado 25 de marzo.

 

Los primeros dos álbums de Mexican Dubwiser "Revolution Radio" y "Electric City", encendieron discotecas e invadieron estaciones de radio no solo en México sino también en Latino America, EEUU y algunos países de Europa, que lo llevaron a presentarse en grandes e importantes festivales internacionales como el Glastonbury Festival (England), Vive Latino (Mexico City), Circulart (Colombia), Sunset Junction Music Festival (Los Angeles), RMX (Guadalajara), Pal Norte Music Festival (Monterrey), y Machaca Fest (Monterrey) entre otros; además de compartir el escenario con grandes figuras internacionales.

 

Con "Border Frequency", Mexican Dubwiser sigue esculpiendo su propio nicho en el mundo de la música electronic-dance y empujando los límites del género hacia nuevas fronteras.

THE ANNUAL SKANKING REGGAE FEST ANNOUNCES THE REPLACEMENT OF PANTEON ROCOCO & ANTIDOPING IN THEIR LINE UP DUE TO SERIOUS DIFFICULTIES IN RENEWING THEIR VISAS

THE ANNUAL SKANKING REGGAE FEST ANNOUNCES THE REPLACEMENT OF PANTEON ROCOCO & ANTIDOPING IN THEIR LINE UP DUE TO SERIOUS DIFFICULTIES IN RENEWING THEIR VISAS

Despite the circumstances, the show must go on. We owe it to the fans who attend the Skanking Reggae Fest every year," says Adrian Gonzalez of iHomi, the promoter and founder of the festival who officially announced with Goldenvoice that the bands MASKATESTA and RASKAHUELE will take the place of Panteón Rococó and Antidoping this Saturday, March 11 at the Shrine Expo Hall.

 

For the first time in the last 20 years of the Mexican bands career and uninterrupted USA tours, the renewal of work visas to enter US as a Mexican artist has taken more time than usual. This will be the groups first time that they fail to perform due to visa reasons. This is also Antidopings case, who began the process of the artist visa renewal since signing the festivals contract 5 months ago and who continue to wait for the pending approval.

Dr. Shenka de Panteón Rococó & Pedro and Diego de Antidoping shared this video message talking about the reasons for their absence at the festival

 

MASKATESTA, one of the most popular ska bands in Mexico was added to the line up to perform at the Festival along with ska group Raskahuele, who was included among the 10 most talented bands in California today, according to the publication Al Borde, and who are currently recording what will be the bands highly anticipated new album.

 

Moving on from the unfortunate news, the Festival will continue with the rest of the bands previously announced from South America, Japan and USA which includes Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra, Dread Mar I, Los Caligaris, The Slackers, Jackie Mendez and La Banda Skalavera, who have a set appointment at the historic Shrine Expo Hall in Los Angeles.

 

The growing and successful festival that began 7 years ago with the idea of solidifying the Latino ska scene in this country, has shown that it is more alive than ever by reflecting the same diversity that genre and its mergers have. Throughout the previous 6 editions, dozens of ska-punk-reggae groups from different countries, not just Latin America, have performed at this popular festival that gathered nearly 5,000 attendees last year.

 

GA tickets for the festival are now at $50,00 on sale via AXS.com, at the Shrine Auditorium Expo Hall box office and at the Bolochos store in Los Angeles (303 W. 8th St. Los Angeles Ca. 90014 -Tel. 213 595-5977). Tickets for the Skallywood VIP Experience package will be available at $100.00.

Singer, songwriter and musician NEA AGOSTINI to perform 2 official showcases in SXSW

Singer, songwriter and musician NEA AGOSTINI to perform 2 official showcases in SXSW

 

The talented singer, composer, and guitarist Nea Agostini has been busy promoting his third EP Te Disuelves since its release in 2016. The new production has come to redefine the sound and artistic identity of Nea and his brother, Ale Agostini, who co-writes and plays drums and percussion. After recent promotional tours in Colombia and Mexico, the Italian-Chileans return to the United States for two important official showcases at the Music Festival and Conference SXSW in Austin, Texas. The first showcase will take place on March 15 at Tenoak and the second show presented by BMI will take place at The Thownsend.

 

Te Disuelves is an album that has forever changed the Agostini Brothers, not just due to the unique opportunity to collaborate with superstar producer Sebastian Krys (Gloria Estefan, Shakira, Carlos Vives, Alejandro Sanz) but also because of the talented musicians who contributed to the tracking, including Paul Bushnell on bass (Elton John, Phil Collins and Shakira), Roger Manning Junior on keyboards (Jellyfish, Beck, Imperial Drag, Blink 182), Sean Billings on brass (U2, The Brian Setzer Orchestra, Pitbull), Brian Lang on woodwinds (Christian Pagán, Trevor Hall, Ricardo Arjona), and his brother Ale Agostini on drums and percussion (Muddy Waters all Star Band, Michael Burks, Nate James).

 

The album, which was recorded, mixed, and mastered at East West and The Big Top Studios in Los Angeles, CA, also features co-authored songs by two talented songwriters from South America - Ximena Muñoz (Colombia) and Francisca Valenzuela (Chile).

 

Despite Neas short career, Te Disuelves showcases the maturity of his writing style and distinct voice. "Nea has a rather unusual voice and thats one of the hardest things to find: someone who does not sound like anyone else. He, in particular, grew a lot as a singer with this album." - Sebastian Krys

 

Andres Agostini Cecchi (Nea) has studied at several renowned musical institutions in the world, including the Modern School of Music (Santiago), the Accademia Del Suono (Milano) and Berklee College of Music in Boston. He released his first EP, Stay The Same, in 2015, which was followed up by his debut album entitled Nos Movemos. From this first album came the single "Estamos Juntos", which has now reached over one million plays on Spotify.

 

While the Agostini brothers prepare for their promotional tour in the U.S., which begins in Austin, continues through New York (March 20-24) where they will be presenting their third album to the press, and ends in Miami, Nea Agostini continues to shine as one of the most talented, emerging international artists of today.

 

Ecuadorean singer and musician ELJURI announces Mexico tour dates

Ecuadorean singer and musician ELJURI announces Mexico tour dates

 

Eljuris music breaks conventions with clear firm social messages. On her album La Lucha she weaves rock, pop, world, reggae and Latin rhythms with her powerful voice and stellar guitar work into eleven compelling songs.

 

Her stance on womens rights is clear and has been consistent throughout her solo career. On January 21, 2017, she was one of the leader organizers of the Womens March on New York. This ideology is reflected on La Lucha, as Eljuri connects with the traditions of the social struggles for civil rights and against guns, violence and social injustices in the United States and beyond.

 

Eljuri has just launched a live performance video La Lucha LIVE:

Using her voice and the stages offered to her Eljuri, joined by Coca Cortes on bass and Javo Sosa on drums, will make clear to their Mexican audiences that La Lucha (The Fight) is an act of courage that we must exercise everyday.

Going to SXSW next week?. - Don t miss the long-awaited debut of PANTEON ROCOCO at the International Music Festival in Austin, with 2 major performances

 

With a musical journey that spans over 20 years, Panteón Rococó, the iconic Latin Ska band and currently one of the biggest drawing acts from Mexico, are ready for the long-awaited debut at the international music festival and conference SXSW in Austin, with two major performances.

 

This band that began their journey in 1995 in the midst of the Zapatista movement in Mexico, with a social commitment and an activist outlook, is starting this year by accepting an invitation to SXSW where they will hold 2 concerts and participate in several promotional activities in Austin, Texas. Panteón Rococós first performance will take place on the SXSW Outdoor Stage at Lady Bird Lake, The All Latino Resist Concert Presented by Voto Latino, a free event that is open to the public, together with Residente (Calle 13) and L.A. band Ozomatli, on Thursday, March 16.

 

The second show will be presented by Kichink On at the Half Step (75 1/2 Rainey St), on Friday, March 17.

 

2016 has been a significant year for Panteón Rococó on many levels, a year in which they devoted their time to keep celebrating two decades of musical career mostly throughout Mexico, with major performances at fairs, sports arenas and festivals. It was the year their eighth album was released, a CD/DVD (Sony Music) recorded live at the CDMX Arena in mid-2015 during their 20th anniversary concert, with an audience of over 23,000 people, a venue at full capacity. A few weeks after this release they earned a Gold Record for sales of said album.

 

During that same year the group toured Canada for the first time and returned to Europe, where they are very popular in many countries, in order to participate in Fusion FEST, one of the biggest and most popular festivals on the old continent. They finished the year with a show in the Mexican capital on December 3, at Palacio de los Deportes with a sold-out attendance of 25,000, a concert that ended an important stage for Panteón Rococó with great energy, dance and resistance, confirming again the groups current drawing power.

 

The group is currently in the process of writing the songs for their new studio-recorded album and their U.S. tour has been confirmed for the second half of the year.

It was the year they released their 8th album "XX Years", a CD/DVD (Sony Music) recorded live at the sold out 20th Anniversary Concert at the CDMX Arena in front of more than 23,000 attendees. Within weeks of its launch the album achieved Gold status for its sales in Mexico.
