Artist to Watch: Douster

Who: Douster
Where: Lyon, France

Twenty-three-year-old Hugo Passaquin may be French, but his bread and butter resides below the equator—in Buenos Aires, to be exact. While studying abroad in Argentina, he immersed himself in cumbia villera and quickly found friends in the local Zizek collective. Honing his skills at underground parties and more recently during ZZK tours of the U.S. and Europe, he's found a niche where the tropical sounds of cumbia, kuduro, and dancehall collide with glitchy electro, hip-hop, and fidget house. Douster's already released music on Sound Pellegrino and Man Recordings, and his ZZK Records' debut, Triassic Genesis, is expected later this month.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
