Back in November, Argentina’s Pakapi Records, in conjunction with the UK label Was Ist Das, released Industria Tropical, an incredible compilation of South American artists that blur the lines of industrial electronic and traditional South American music. Released on limited edition cassette, the comp features over 25 artists and 90 minutes of genre-bending music.
This past week, the masterminds behind Pakapi and Was Ist Das collaborated on a promo mix for International Tapes (a great blog of internationally curated digital mixtapes you should definitely read), which brought the compilation to our attention. Culled from their co-release, “it’s equal parts cumbia, EBM, reggaeton, and electro, packaged in an amazing concept.”
