2Mex Sweat Lodge Infinite
- Words: Dave Segal
- Label: Temporary Whatever
A mainstay in LA's fecund hip-hop underground for the last decade, Alejandro Ocana has lit up records by the Visionaries, Mindclouders and Of Mexican Descent. But his debut as 2Mex may be his most incendiary work yet. From the militant first track, "Obey," with its grandiose horn stabs, scratches from Breakestra's Mixmaster Wolf, and hypnotic organ riff, 2Mex thrusts you into the apocalyptic funkiness and exhilarating existentialism of golden-era crews like Public Enemy, X Clan and Poor Righteous Teachers. With elevated contributions from various Darkleaf and Shapeshifters cohorts, Sweat Lodge Infinite ought to attract more heads to 2Mex's piquantly eccentric gifts.
