Latest from Alpha S is a Manifesto for Contemporary Latin Club Music

By 11 September, 2019

As reggaeton continues to embed itself in the mainstream, the line between what is “real” Latin music and what is a pre-conception made in the economical centers of the world, has increasingly become blurred, with cultural colonization as the last bastion to tumble for territorial consciousness, be it as a collective space or our own bodies.

This reality underpins the rhythmic manifesto at the heart of the new release from Alpha S on his home label Discos Pegaos. The first volume of Surakismos has arrived to tear apart 4/4 beat structures and genre limits, and also features the help of partners in crime (when it comes to smashing a party), Vandal Boogie, on the track “Vandal Rave”.
