Rizomagic - Voltaje Raizal [Disasters By Choice Promo]

Put out on the circuit via the Italian label named Disasters By Choice only recently is "Voltaje Raizal", the first ever album outing carved out by the duo known as Rizomagic which is the shared creative moniker of Diego Manrique and Edgar Marun which are aiming at a fusion of Afro-Caribbean music, futuristic Tropicalia, Cumbia and electronic sounds over the course of 37 minutes. With seven original tracks and two additional remixes crafted by Rizomagic for La Palabra and Truequeo respectively, rightfully added towards the end of the longplayer as an extension of the main body of work we see the two artists approach this well eclectic fusion with a good chunk of tongue-in-cheek humour and immanent sample madness, stirring up dancefloors with Exotica bangers like the opening piece "Noconoco", get deep into cheeky, yet seductive IDM x Future Tribal territories with their "Rizomantra", weigh in tons of uplifting Phonk in "Puyante" and go into full-on tropical party mode in "Millo Kru" just to name a few. If you can imagine a lovechild conceived in a bizarre love triangle of the first two Jeans Team 7" singles on the legendary Nadel Eins label, the former Hamburg-based band Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and the "Eclektronics" album by Jean Jacques Perrey & David Chazam causing sweet havoc and disaster in your living room you probably need this album in your life. Immediately.
