Coqueta EP By Kinky

Kinky's explosive live show favourite 'Coqueta', the quirky animated video of which has been on heavy rotation at MTV Tr3s, is remixed by leading producers in the latin electronic genre - Nortec Collective's Panoptica, Dj Afro from the Venezuelan band Los Amigos Invisibles, and Nopal beat's Tovar. The result is 3 very different takes on the Kinky formula - from pumping brass infused rhythms to laid back acoustic guitar electronica.

Rarities (US Release) By Kinky

The five-man Monterrey, Mexico based band – Gilberto Cerezo (vocals, guitar), Ulises Lozano (keyboards), Carlos Chairez (lead guitar), Cesar Pliego (bass) and Omar Gongora(drums) - exploded onto the international scene in the summer of 2000. Since then, the band has recorded three eclectic albums – Kinky (2002), Atlas (2003) and Reina (2006) - been nominated for three Grammy’s® , composed music for films and played countless gigs all over the planet in front of hundreds of thousands, inducing dance floor hysteria and winning legions of enthusiastic fans.

There most recent release, Rarities blends sounds that are contemporary and traditional, dynamic and contemplative, innovative and yet strangely familiar. The album was originally put out in the UK as a limited edition of 750 hand numbered copies, just for Kinky’s UK fans, but overwhelming positive feedback from the European press has prompted the band and Sonic360 to launch a new full scale release in the US and Canada. Rarities will make you ask for Más y Más y Más!

The record also includes KINKY’s barnstorming cover of Tito Puente’s famous “Oye Come Va” (extended mix), which was featured on the Blockbuster movie “Man on Fire”. We’ve also added some rare remixes that may or may not have appeared on very limited edition vinyl releases, such as remixes by Money Mark, Lazy Boy, Capri and fellow Mexican artists Toy Selectah and Bostich. To conclude, the band have added three bonus live recordings of their big hits: “Mas”, “The Headphonist”, and “Sol” – now you can have KINKY LIVE in your own bedroom! Now that’s KINKY!!

ATLAS

Atlas By Kinky

Recorded in two completely different locations; an isolated ranch in the jungle and the thriving city of Los Angeles, ‘Atlas’ traces this contrast of environments and exhaustive travelling in every song, to make a worldly wise, rock driven second album. Sonically ‘Atlas’ is a clash of the organic and the digital. Lyrically, it roams from savouring all the moments you can, to acknowledging and appreciating things that most take for granted. Starting at home in Mexico with propulsive single ‘Presidente’, the Kinky journey begins…A truly masterful follow-up to their eponymous debut.

Kinky By Kinky

Undeterred by genres, 'Kinky' simply mashes it all together. Morphing Mexican folk songs with pulsing electronic grooves, the group add funky guitars, Vocoder-treated Spanish vocals, street percussion and a war-chest of psychotic sound samples for mayhem-fuelled music. Call it Latino house or Mexicali electro, whatever, 'Kinky' kills. Upending previous electronica equations, 'Kinky' never forgoes a good song for a good mix, finding its unique synthesis in a rare mesh of both principles. This is the future - greet it with a smile.

Mexican producers Tovar, SLSS (Sistema Local) and Kinky Basselina have come up with some classic totally fresh-sounding deep house and ragga/cumbia remixes - a must-have for all DJs constantly looking for the next dancefloor killer tune to uplift the masses.

Beautiful Sunset Airport Term. 3 By Various

Argentina's Index aka Leo Portela wrote the stunning deep house track 'Ojeras Violetas', after our Chris asked him to inject some musical elements of tango into his musical style. Expect to hear much more from this guy. Next up: a classic deep house remix by Gigolo records' 'vocoder kid' Capri, of Kinky's single 'Soun Tha Mi Primer Amor'. Relying heavily on the sexy Mexican Spanish murmurings of Kinky lead singer Gil Cerezo, Capri succeeds in pulling a totally Class-A dancefloor electro deep house killer. Pass the tequila. To finish off the compilation, we salute ambient-breaks masters Pea Green Boat (Rory Natkiel and Mits Kayaba) from Leeds with their sublime track Citric. You may now unfasten your seatbelts. We hope you enjoy your flight.
