Podcast 111: Matías Aguayo
- Words: Shawn Reynaldo
Between the rise of his Cómeme label and the release of his new album, Ay Ay Ay, 2009 has seen Matías Aguayo taking a major creative left turn. While the former Closer Musik member once made a name for himself crafting the finely tuned techno of his Cologne-based peers, he now spends his days twisting and turning the sounds of rhythms of Latin America into new-school dancefloor workouts. It's unclear whether the native Chilean is returning to his roots or simply enjoying the exploration of a new sonic palette, but we're certainly fascinated by the results. On this exclusive XLR8R podcast mix, Aguayo's penchant for experimentation continues, as he combines several of his own productions with everything from classic cumbias to Latin-flavored flea-market finds.
