Matias Aguayo – Support Alien Invasion
1 in stock (backorders allowed)
The ever-surprising and adventurous Matias Aguayo takes another step into unknown territories with this new solo album. The most immediately striking aspect of Support Alien Invasion is the dual nature of the music: the tracks overflow with dance action via hypermodern grooves, while exuding an impression of quasi-abstract sonic architecture. The danceable dimension is stunningly original, as Matias has been striving to create heavy, sound system-friendly beats which incorporate non-Eurocentric, non-4/4 rhythm programming.
The result often sounds like some kind of irresistible, futuristic Maloya or carnival music, which induces new ways of dancing. At the same time, when approached in a more intimate setting (headphones, living room, inner sanctum), the album turns out to provide a unique listening experience: one can easily get lost in it’s buzzing soundscapes, huge spaces, clinking tones, and other sonic inventions which bring Support Alien Invasion strangely close to some elegant, conceptual electroacoustic piece of work. Forward-thinking, eclectic music lovers will be happy to learn that Crammed Discs and Cómeme (Matias and Avril Ceballos’ internationalist electronic music imprint) have joined forces to release this album.
