‘Grial’ has been produced between Medellín and Barcelona, where Verraco currently resides.
The album itself is a vision of South American IDM, a squelchy combination of techno, wider ambient drones and perreo. Single ‘Tración (10mente mix)’ is filled with laser-like synths and jungle breakbeats, a staggering, clattering track to take you through until dawn.
The ambient space opened up by the album embodies the ‘Latin-Futurist message’ that the album’s press release proclaims. Verraco’s own Insurgentes label was set up as a platform for South American artists; they have released records from Argentinian techno producer Seph and Chilean Tomás Urquieta.Listen to ‘Tración (10mente mix)’ below, and preorder the LP here.
