Mati Zundel Moves
Mati Zundel is a bit of a trailblazer. Along with his label, ZZK, they've been experimenting with the dance music template and taking things in all kinds of unpredictable directions for ages. Fusing soca, dancehall, baile funk, dubstep, house, electro, and just about anything else they can think of Mati Zundel is bound and determined to make people move in one way or another. Mati's album Amazonico Gravitante is a snarly, sizzling synthetic through the streets of Buenos Aires.
Sounding as if it were Carnivale music for robots, Amazonico Gravitante is an electronic street party with loads of banging beats, seductive grooves, and synthetic rhythms to last an eternity. If you were to take modern recording technology and send it on vacation I would guess that this is the sort of thing it would send back. Amazonico Gravitante is an electronic post card that's laid back, diverse, entertaining, and globally aware. Unafraid of any sound, experiment, or idea Mati Zundel allows his imagination to run wild and the results truly are stunning.
Mati Zundel has created a party that we're all invited to regardless of nationality. Amazonico Gravitante is a tropical paradise carved out South American influences, electronic equipment and a global dance floor. While firmly rooted down south Amazonico Gravitante has world wide appeal with its dance floor filling capabilities and is the kind of record everyone needs to hear if not own.
