For seven years straight, ZZK has run as a music collective, a nightclub, and a label that has consistently released quality music that has been successfully exported on an international level. They are key characters in the boom of digital cumbia that occurred years ago and still continues today, becoming a vehicle for projects like Chancha Via Circuito, Frikstailers, Fauna, Tremor, El Remolón, Villa Diamante, La Yegros, to put out their music and reach global audiences with their experimental and daring take on Latin American sounds. No wonder they were just selected for the Makers Muse award by the grantmaking organization The Kindle Project. Needless to say, it’s one of our all-time favorite Latin imprints.
The guys from ZZK are now giving you the chance to be active participants in their history, and it comes with rewards! They have teamed up with the crowdfunding platform IndieGoGo for a campaign where you can directly help fund the label’s operation and upcoming projects, like the release of Ecuadorian newcomer Nicola Cruz‘s debut album. And what you can get in exchange is just amazing.
Wanna eat, drink, and hang out with ZZK artists? Chip $500 in. Want the label’s entire catalogue? Get it for $200. Wanna get your hands on an amazing guitar made by Barrio Lindo and Chancha Via Circuito’s collaborator, Paula Duró? It’s yours if you collaborate with $2500. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Get digital downloads, vinyl, personalized illustrations, merch, an old-school cumbia poster, a DJ set by El G, a trip to Buenos Aires… Phew! Just select your reward and support the label so they continue doing what they do best: help amazing artists to accomplish their vision and get their music to resonate with the whole wide world.
