Multicultural Sounds: Waxploitation + ZZK Records Compilation

Multicultural Sounds travels the world for contemporary reinventions of cultural staples.


A quick post regarding this compilation from Waxploitation and ZZK Records! According to Diplo, “ZZK is the first label to push the sound of Argentina from the villa (ghettos) to the uptown. ZZK is a big part in bringing this to the attention of the people.”

The experimental electronic music they’re presenting has a little bit for everyone, though all of it is extremely percussive. Some of the highlights below include the metallic sounds of “Selva” by Chancha Via Circuito, the vocal pecularities of “Viene de Mi” by La Yegros, and the glitched out collage of “Knippelsuppe” by Frikstailers and Copyfokking. “Senor Montecostes” also comes from Mati Zundel’s upcoming record, Amazonico Gravitante, which comes out March 27th on Waxploitation / ZZK Records.
