Oye, it's new mixtape time! Very excited to present "GRITO" to kick off working with the Dutty Artz familia.
Riobamba created "Grito" as a response to her year spent in Bogotá, Colombia, and as a loud, clear call for autonomy and self-determination in the global digital music culture.
The mixtape opens with an original sound piece reworking Youtube news clips and field recordings from the campesino strikes that shut down Bogotá for weeks in 2013 as an outcry against multinational interference. "Grito" is a frantic trip through acid dembow, crashing baile funk, and screwed ruidosón rave undercurrents. The selections challenge the listener to reconsider their expectations for Latin@ dance music, and pay homage to unhushed howls of decolonized club culture.
