After 2 years. Caballo is back with a whole new album which he decided to go back to his cumbia bass roots and get them to the new bass level.
The actual concept of the album makes it looks spontaneous. However, the album has been crafted to be perceived differently depending on who is listening to it.
If you are European, African, Asian or North American, you will listen to it differently than a Latino will do; however a Colombian will understand it differently as well.
And of course, I know everyone is different.
But what I mean here is the craft in details, they have been put in a way that is open to recognize elements, in a way, many songs will sound extremely close to you as a listener, or totally bass music, depending on where you are from, or how strong your connection with an identity is.
At the same time, songs will be kinda unorthodox, or will be cohesive depending on how many bass genres you listen to.
The album goes for: FREE DOWNLOAD
A way to contextualize this, might be the opening track CULO E VACILE
The album challenges what Cumbia and latin roots are in terms of sounds, but it also has explicit lyrics and organic sounds that complement the sampling process, a lot of the songs you are about to hear, have real drums.
Champeta, Moombahton, Zouk Bass, Dubstep, and Cumbia Bass are the most common genres that will blend into each other.
Chong X and Caballo get together to give a more cumbia-bass, moombahton mashing up Major Lazer & Chupacabras
This is a champeta collab with Molo Diaz, Kinky Electric Noise and Piper Street Band of Sol Okarina’s contacto, which was one of the best indie songs of last year for the Latino spectrum.
Lyrics and Music are really important, so there are tracks that have been designed to be cohesive with the #absurdus manifesto.
There are 3 songs for all the rebels out there: Belief which is a dubstep, This is now the time which is a Dub- Drum n bass and this epic Collab with Colombian Master PERNETT
But for DJS and/or dancefloor appeal there are few tricks in the album as well.. like a dope edit of WOST’s face to face.
Even a cumbia bass direction in a collaboration between Neki Stranac, Caballo, Carnnibal and yes, the epic Ragga twins
The biggest new genre of 2013-4, Zouk Bass, gets a different approach as well in a JSTJR’s Cerveja
Without losing his political focused releases: Absurd is also trying to open the discussion on 3 main elements that unite people from all over the world.
The gap between rich & poor, the tactics politicians do to remain in power, what media filters to manipulate opinion.
All of this, is absurd. It does not have any logic, and still, we are comfortable in this chaos.
And as you can see; it comes with an amazing art made by CUANTIKA STUDIO
that gives you the option of choosing which cover you want, in case you want to print and burn a CD
