Not too long ago we previewed the incoming Naked Geography EP honoring the 43 missing students from Ayotzinapa. At that time we only speak to two of tracks, “Flirting” and “Baby It’s a Wildworld” that communicated an eerie smoothness to our ears, while awaiting four remixes for a full NWLA release. Just this week, Naked Geometry released the full edition of The Missing 43 EP, adding a broader span of rhythms and strengthening the call for justice and awareness of what happened more than two months ago in Guerrero, Mexico.
Me & Myself manages to create a breakbeat-ish version of “Flirting” using those catchy arpeggios that can hold down almost any track. Ninasonik’s remix is not the first collaboration between these two producers, but the output differs from previous attempts by creating a more obscure version of “Baby It’s a Wildworld.” At some point during Cash Ride’s remix of “Baby It’s a Wildworld,” we can hear a sample of Omar García’s voice narrating his testimony of what happened on the day the disappearance happened.
The EP moves through lo-fi and–as Naked Geography described them–future R&B sounds with bold social and political statements that make it difficult to stop listening once you’ve pressed play.
