8. Future Sounds of Buenos Aires, Zizek Collective
Art by Jacob Escobedo

Simple but very effective, the design for ZZK‘s latest comp was done by Jacob Escobedo who has also done art for international artists like The Shins and Gnarls Barkley, among many others. It doesn’t explicitly reference Buenos Aires or the ñu-cumbia experience, and to be fair, it sorta looks more retro than futuristic, but it’s just a beautiful piece of art worth hanging on an art gallery wall. The vinyl pressing is delicious. -JD
