Record Label Spotlight: ZZK Records

The Argentinian ZZK (pronounced zizek) Records is comprised of a collective of artists that are producing a new sound called “Electro Cumbia” and include names such as Chancha Via Circuito and Fauna. The resulting genre is a strange, but appealing intersection of old and new sounds. Equally striking is ZZK’s aesthetic, which combines neon colors with traditional patterns.

RIMAR – Forever

Rimar is a Brooklyn based artist who uses heavy retro samples to create a funky sound of the same genre as Star Slinger or Wise Blood. His newest album, released a week ago, is free to download off of his bandcamp. My current favorite is “Forever” from his 2011 album Higher Ground. The catchy beat, combined with the short minute and a half duration makes it hard to play this song only one time. Check it out below (track 6):
