El Irreal Veintiuno - Poliformo
SUBREAL is pleased to announce its second release, Poliformo (SR002), from Mexican artist El Irreal Veintiuno.
This forceful work explores the peripheral sounds of Mexican-tribal, dembow, and cumbia, contouring them with outside influences ranging from footwork to hardcore. Wielding the characteristic syncopated rhythms and candidly hypnotic melodies, on the one hand El Irreal Veintiuno is playing with the contemporary Mexican soundscape. Nahuatl vocals and pre-Hispanic rhythm punctuate the crushed and distorted kicks and bass.
Concurrently, Poliformo reveals its practice of introspection, delving into the intensity of memories and emotions to which music is intrinsically tied: ecstasy, anger, anxiety, and joy. What results is 6 multi-faceted tracks, as full of personal and mythological narrative as it is full of dance-floor spirit.
