Premiere: Pobvio – Momo Riddim
Anyone who attains the NAAFI seal of approval is pretty much good in our book and the inclusion of Uruguayan artist Lechuga Zafiro in the recent NAAFI Pirata 2 bootleg pack and the NAAFI NTS show is validation for a a producer and DJ who has quickly risen to the top of the echelon as far as South American artists approaching club forms goes. Not stopping with his alliance with the Mexico City-based label though, LZ is attempting to foster a community in Montevideo through his Salviatek label, bringing in fellow Uruguayan Pobvio for the label’s first full EP. The Syndombe Club EP is built around a reinterpretation of traditional candombe rhythms, bringing them into a mechanized and militarized age on tracks like “Momo Riddim” and “La Llamada” that are at once playful and full of glossy, kinetic energy. Syndombe Club is out September 11 and will feature remixes from Lechuga Zafiro and Imaabs.
