Santiago Salazar "Pico Union"
- Words: Glenn Jackson
"Pico Union" is a track formally lost and perhaps forgotten by Los Angeles native Santiago Salazar—as he told us via email, "I just found this on a data disc while [doing some] spring cleaning." And so we have "Pico Union," a tune which Salazar named after the LA neighborhood in which he resided back in 1997, when the song was originally made. True to form, the decade-old cut is deliciously spacey, incorporating a string-like melody and tuned chords atop a bed of restless drum programming that moves in unexpected bursts but never loses hold of the song's jagged groove. It all certainly makes for an intriguing cut, and one that serves as a welcome peek into the production past of the longtime Underground Resistance member.
