As one of the key members of Latin American label Cómeme, it's a little surprising that Diego Morales, (a.k.a. Diegors) has yet to release a solo 12". However, with the release of Sacándose Uno earlier this week, that status has officially changed. Following in the footsteps of his work with Matias Aguayo (who did an excellent podcast for XLR8R and appeared on our cover) and fitting squarely into the genre-bending sound of Cómeme, is this b-side offering "Unga." It's a tech-house affair with all the accouterments and then some: crisp hi-hats, 808 cowbells, detuned synthesizers, metallic explosions, and a low tom-sampled bassline. What sets the track apart, though, is the unintelligible-yet-charming outsider-music vocals that sound like an uncharacteristically cheerful Seth Troxler. Give the tune a listen below and be sure to pick up a copy of the "Sacándose Uno" single from your favorite distributor.
