Corina Lawrence - La Descarriá feat Miss Bolivia (Uji Remix) - (Official Music Video)

Stream Pre-order the album Gracias a aquellos que abrieron sus corazones y me invitaron a participar de sus cantos y rituales. En orden de aparición: (Thanks to those who opened their hearts and invited me to participate in their rituals and songs. In order of appearance): - Salta, Argentina // Copleros de Iruya - Cristina Lara, Monica Romero, Vicente Ferrer Ibarra - Tartagal, Argentina // Anhais - Cantos Chorote-Wichi - Tilcara, Argentina // Punta Corral - Montevideo, Uruguay // Ritual de Iemanjá - Tuyunti, Argentina // Pim Pim de Tuyunti - Chincha, Peru // Atajo de Negritos - Margarita Cordova - Chincha, Peru // Atajo de Negritos - Familia Ballumbrosio - Embarcación, Argentina // Pim Pim de las Estrellas - Humahuaca, Argentina // Carnaval Quebrada de Humahuaca - Chincha, Peru // Atajo de Negritos - Familia Huaman - Tilcara, Argentina // Comparsa Los Caprichosos - Huacalera, Argentina // Comparsa La Union Huerteña - Montevideo, Uruguay // Llamadas de Candombe _____________ La Descarriá is a manifesto about freedom, specifically relating to the struggles of women and how they are often judged unfairly by society. The original track was written by Argentine vocalist Corina Lawrence, produced by Uji, and also features the provocative Buenos Aires rapper Miss Bolivia. Uji decided to put another spin on the original production for his solo album, giving the song a newfound dance floor groove. In La Descarriá, Uji paints an audio landscape that takes you to the high plains of Bolivia, pairing it  with a Tarantino style guitar riff and then brings you to a banging 808 inspired club beat. In order to create the music video, Uji used archival footage that he filmed over the years while immersed in South America researching its rich musical and cultural heritage. In the “La Descarriá” video we find images from traditional festivities and rituals in which music plays an important role and shows Latin America’s deep rooted syncretism and amalgamation of influences. Images in the video shift from scenes from La Quebrada de Humahuaca’s Andean carnival in the north of Argentina to Montevideo’s Afro-Uruguayan Candombe llamadas, from the Pim Pim dances from the Wichi people on Argentina’s border with Bolivia; to the Afro-Peruvian festivities in Chincha, among others. “Having immersed myself so deeply into the heart of Latin America has been a life-changing experience. What I saw and heard during those intense journeys is now embedded in all the music I create. There is a real struggle for cultural diversity to survive and since these travels I’ve made it my personal mission to try and show the world how rich this continent and its people really are.” __________ Filmed by Uji Produced by Uji Edited by Manuel De la Rua Uji Spotify Facebook Instagram Bandcamp Soundcloud ZZK Records Spotify Instagram Twitter Facebook Bandcamp SoundCloud Merch

Resonators - Something Special [Official Video 2018]

SUBSCRIBE ➜ Log on @ Download @ and “In these days of homogenised, digital recordings lacking in any individual sound or identity it is most encouraging to hear something so truly original… most refreshing”. David Rodigan MBE Following on from their critically acclaimed second album ‘Imaginary People’ (championed by the likes of David Rodigan, Huey Morgan, Gideon Coe & many more) seminal UK Dub outfit Resonators return to conquer all with their latest offering. ‘Something Special’ launches headfirst into a hypnotising 4/4 stepper, complete with earth shaking bassline and haunting saxophone lines. Meditative energies run through the dub laced ether, delayed vocals reverberating in the distance. On the flip side ‘Why I (Discomix)’ moves into more introspective, half time territory, drifting slowly through space. Elevating consciousness and disconnecting from reality. Resonators are without a doubt one of the most powerful and highly regarded dub outfits in the UK, taking all the influences of original Jamaican sounds and riddims, and bringing it forward into the sounds of here and now. With a plethora of new songs under their belt and a further EP scheduled for release later in the year, as well as what’s becoming a very healthy catalogue of crowd-pleasers from their last two albums, Resonators are touring the UK and Europe throughout spring and summer. #ReggaevilleVideoPremiere #MaadSickReggaeville #Reggaeville
