Lichen Each track feels unique, dipping into different styles while retaining Indigenous elements and general Latin American influences. This album is a treat for those wanting to hear experimental electronic music more removed from Western ideology.
The Bandcamp download includes a bonus track that will be appreciated by other Native Americans who also know what's up. Favorite track: Breaking Hegemonies.

hold-no-carter This was easily one of the best electronic releases of 2020, yet it went almost entirely unsung. Amazing in the way it captures the braininess of classic IDM but uses it to cry out in pain for revolution. Favorite track: +Decodification__.

cbdiabla A terrific IDM record that channels the violence of Latin American history and dreams of a better future. Let's unite for the pluriversal utopia that awaits us! Favorite track: Sur — Furia.

fickeymickey One of my best, unexpected discoveries of 2020. Th whole album is so diverse, yet coherent. Traicion is the best representation of a whole album - i’ts like experiencing a whole night at music festival within 6 minutes. Amazing stuff. Favorite track: Traición (10mente mix).

about

Programmed between Medellín and Barcelona over the course of two years, Grial explores concepts of mestizo and its “impurity”. Rejecting the notion of a singular Latinx musical identity, Verraco paints his own vision of South American IDM, blending perreo, jungle ambiance and mountainous Andes braindance.

From rural chants flowing down a mountain range, to street bikes and gang outbreaks lighting up cityscapes, the use of field recordings in Grial guide listeners through Verraco’s sonic fiction. Verraco proposes to rethink the sudaca cyborg-habitants of the future fusing powerful sound design to collapse the established order. Grial becomes the sacrament in which other possible worlds turn corporeal.
