The work of Sebastian 'Sano' Hoyos, Gregorio 'Gladkazuka' Gomez, Natalia Valencia and Comeme boss Matias Aguayo, Rionegro is a true product of its environment. It came about after the foursome jammed together in a town of the same name, just outside Medellin in Colombia. Inspired by salsa and merengue as well as Aguayo's leftfield take on house and techno, it's a vivid affair. It begins with the jazzy "Lugarena", before the quartet plunges into the Duane Eddy-esque guitar duels of "Negro Empelota". By the time they have reached the party rhythms of "Carruseles", the work really hits its salsa stride, while "Llego El Don" is imbued with a merengue swagger. It's house and techno shot through with some pura vida magic.
