The tirelessly inventive Matias Aguayo has announced plans to launch a four-part 12" series entitled El Rudo Del House and based on an "imaginary creature who speaks to you with a pitched-down voice and produces heavy house rhythms that are engineered to directly trigger the movement of different body parts." Musically, the series is said to fall somewhere between the more tropical outings on Aguayo's 2013 LP The Visitor and the slightly darker cuts featured on his recent Legende EP for Kompakt. The El Rudo Del House series is also said to have been inspired by "the Elbee Bad question, 'Why not just dance through life?'" a press release explains. With that in mind, Aguayo "pursued the question leading him to this radical dancing Spirit who says you should confront every situation with dancing, and apply this spirit into your everyday life. El Rudo Del House teaches that when we dance we can become other beings, switch our species... Turn into little nervous, jittering muppets or clumsy giants."
The four-part series' first installment, entitled Round One, is set to see its official release on March 16 via Aguayo's own Cómeme imprint, with the following editions slated to arrive in April, May, and June, respectively. While no audio snippets have emerged yet from the forthcoming 12" series, Round One's artwork and tracklist have been included below.
