Barrio Lindo "Yaguareté Abá"

An instrument maker by trade, Barrio Lindo's "strong bond to the native tribes of his Argentinian home" can be heard throughout his compositions, which draw sounds from handmade instrumentation, and the vibrantly textured "Yaguareté Abá" from Lindo's forthcoming Menoko LP is no exception. Kicking off with percussive loops composed of hand-tapped drum patterns and wooden clattering sounds, the production escalates as high-pitched astral synth tones kick in, heavily contrasting with the organic beat. Heaving vocal chants are layered into the track, working together to forge a unique blend of rich sounds. The rest of Lindo's distinct compositions on Menoko are set to drop via Project: Mooncircle on April 4.
