Frikstailers prepare for US tour20 September, 2010
On September 25th Frikstailers (along with El G – DJ and head of their label ZZK Records) will embark on a trek across the United States. For anyone unfamiliar with their live show it is a mix of pure energy, taking in influences from all over the shop, be them dub, dancehall, electro, cumbia, baile funk, house or techno. For some idea of what they will sound like check out this video of them performing on Argentinian TV:
This is how ZZK are building up the tour:
It’s 2020 and you’re on a jeep in the rainforest, in search of a notorious underground dance party. You’re pursued by the jungle police, who are cracking down on unreported tropical clubs with jetsetter deejays and the most savage gogo dancers. But you give them the slip, through an especially dense patch of banana trees and rabid shrubbery. You find the club, enter through the trunk of a hollow tree and bless the ecosphere with your hotness on the earthy dance floor. Cumbiancha Muyo blasts from the speakers – your favorite deejays are on the bill, responsible for a night of green mayhem and abandonment. Kings of the futuristic tropical landscape, the Frikstailers, lay it down in their natural habitat. You’re in future-sonic South America, exactly where you want to be.
