Peliroja - Situaciones/Ciudad de Nadie - 7" (limited edition)
LIMITED COPIES REMAINING!
Producer and guitarist Jacob Plasse has united some of his old friends - players from the Daptones, Pedrito Martinez Group and Los Hacheros - to form Peliroja, a New York collective inspired by the sounds of Ethiopia, Dominican Republic, Cuba and the Congo. Produced and co-written by Plasse, these tunes were recorded live to tape at his studio in Brooklyn, in the spirit of the music he was raised on. The groove to this music is deep, and heard in the way the Daptones’ rhythm section - drummer Homer Steinweiss and bassist Nick Movshon - play off the polyrhythms of Carlos Padron’s timbales and Jhair Salas’ congas, forming a new fusion of old sounds. "Situaciones" blends Ethiopian, afro-cuban and afrobeat elements together with deep soul, while "Ciudad de Nadie" finds a Harlem River Drive influence within the latin funk. These songs are also available on Peliroja's full length release Injusticia, released earlier on Chulo Records. Peace & Rhythm are pleased to see these two funky tunes on limited edition DJ-friendly 45rpm 7" wax. Picture sleeve design by Pablo Yglesias. Co-released with Chulo Records. “a great mix of NYC funk and salsa…they nail it.” - NPR Alt.Latino Listen to the A-side, "Situaciones", via Peliroja's official video for the tune!:
