Animal Chuki "Capicua"
Peruvian electronic group Animal Chuki thinks of music in terms of pure instinct, wearing animal masks and creating sounds reminiscent of tropical environments. "Capicua," the title track lifted from the group's brand-new EP for Buenos Aires label ZZK, accentuates these primal ideas with sampled saxophone licks, buzzing pads, and percussion-heavy cumbia grooves. Animal Chuki unravels its production into a flurry of sustained horns and hollow-sounding toms, all of which is deeply drowned in reverb before being expelled into a sudden conclusion.
