Sidestepper Are Raising Funds To Release New Album, Supernatural Love07 April, 2015
Supernatural Love, the latest project from Bogotá-based Sidestepper, is set to relaunch the relationship between fan and artist. The group have launched a crowdfunding campaign through Uonset, inviting listeners to purchase the album online or make a contribution as opposed to supporting larger record labels.
Removing the middle man is a brave move from the Colombian group, led by the hugely-talented British producer Richard Blair, alongside Teto Ocampo (Mucho Indio), Erika Muñoz, Edgardo Garcés, Juan Carlos Puellos “Chongo” (Ondatrópica) and Hernán Teherán “Batatica”. Supernatural Love uses hand clapping, traditional Colombian flutes, hand drums, guitars and seed-shakers mixed with synth bass.
It’s been seven years since the group released their previous work, The Buena Vibra Sound System, reviving their unique “pan-caribbean” sound. As the group themselves say “music is love” and this album looks set to be another CD that will spice up your playlist.
