Mendrix

It’s not often we get an insight into the electronic music of South America, so all hail the arrival of Calypso from Mexico’s Inigo Vontier and Argentina’s Thomass Jackson.

The tracks featured certainly strike a unique chord, with Mendrix weaving a seductive, noirish tale full of brooding guitar and slow ticking drums, while “Colossio” takes on a darkwave tone on the wonderfully creepy “Esta En Mi”. The label bosses tackle the B side, with Jackson’s “Fantomas” sporting a sharper dancefloor sensibility without ever resorting to obvious tropes. Vontier rounds the EP out with the weirdo boogie throwdown of “Namaste”, sure to pique the interest of anyone locked into the sound coming out of the speakers.
