A psychedelic tropical sextet from the capital of Mexico, La Redada join us following the release of their debut EP last year! Paying respect to Latin American music tradition, they reinvent sounds hidden for years in crates of second-hand vinyl. Informed by the sonic landscape of Mexico City, La Redada have been championed by Gilles Peterson and shared a stage with the likes of Brian Wilson, Seun Kuti, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and Los Gaiteros de San Jacinto. They will be bringing their new material to South London on their first ever European tour - this is not one to miss.
Movimientos DJs will be keeping things moving before and after.
Date: 11th August 2018

Venue: Pop Brixton, 49 Brixton Station Rd, Brixton, London SW9 8PQ
MORE INFO ON THE ARTIST
La Redada reinvent vintage Latin sounds with the goal of revisiting an imaginary past of Mexico City, where musical adventure, the energy of dance and the variety of human experience contained in this city of 20 million people reigns.
During the band’s short history, they have shared the podium with artists such as Brian Wilson, Devendra Banhart, Seun Kuti, Ty Segall, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The Black Angels, Hoppo, Gaiteros de San Jacinto, Botellita de Jerez and Carlos Marks. They have appeared on Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide FM in Mexico show and played festivals such as Carnaval Bahidorá, Trópico in Acapulco, the Festival de la Paz in Baja California as well as Hipnosis and De Repente Enrededor in Mexico City.
The group’s first EP “Abrete Sésamo” was released by the Chicano label Sonorama Chicago in fall 2017.
