DJ: El Remolón
MIXTAPE: Boxeo Constitución
Andrés Schteingart, a.k.a. El Remolón, has been a constant feature in Argentina’s ñu-cumbia scene since its genesis. One of the most active and prolific members of the ZZK collective, he is mostly known as a producer and remixer, but he also, occasionally, works the decks as a DJ and puts together mixtapes that include not only his own music but his selections of his favorite artists.
This mixtape in particular was recently released with the explicit intention of helping promote Boxeo Constitución, a soundtrack for a documentary movie about the boxing subculture in Buenos Aires. El Remolón produced it alongside his own “conjunto.”
No dance numbers here, it’s all chill and laid-back, as expected, and it includes new music and exclusive edits by the likes of Lido Pimienta, Caetano Veloso, Latin Bitman, and Atahualpa Yupanqui, plus ZZK labelmates Frikstailers, Gaby Kerpel, and Chancha Via Circuito.
