Cultura Dura is a Remezcla and Mike’s HARDER content and event series highlighting emerging Latin urban culture. We’ll be exploring scenes that haven’t really gotten any coverage anywhere else – from block parties and street art to underground sports and raw, young artists making movements pa’ la calle.
Née: Sines and Panchitron, “a kind of like a total eclipse of the truest Texas.”
Raíces: Houston, Tejas.
Sounds like: Siete Catorce, Paul Marmota, Kingdom, Venus X.
You should listen to Svnte Mverte because…yes, there’s superbly intricate and meticulous songs, remixes, and mixtapes, but it’s also music with an open door to cultural collision.
Underground dancefloor culture has proven itself a key platform to spearhead sounds, aesthetics, and ideology in musical realms. More than that, it creates a community that provides spaces for real-time collective knowledge that explores the forefront of avant-garde sounds.
This philosophy behind dance music culture comes full circle in the case of Svntv Mverte.
Hailing from Houston, Texas, this power duo Sines and Panchitron, have a Soundcloud account offering up a pallet of infectious rhythms grown out of guttural darkness that oscillates between sensual perreo and a frenetic mix of hyperactive grime vibes. Highlighting the duo’s dark aura is the name of the act, Svntv Mverte; Mexico’s cult of Holy Death, a reference to the worship of an underground goddess of death and the dead.
From trap and hip-hop to dembow, Sines and Panchitron embrace an inclusive encounter of music cultures. Encompassing various factors ranging from visual aesthetics to the sound itself, Svntv Mverte is more than music; it’s a sole expression of the everyday mosaic of subcultures in the United States.
Catch one half of the duo, Sines, tonight September 18th at the Cultura Dura event at the Eastdown Warehouse in Houston, Texas with Füete Billete, Chingo Bling, and Bombón DJs. RSVP for free entry here.
