When a record label brings together artists like Ripperton, Tigerskin, Rone, SIS, Sascha Dive, Siopis, Dennis Cruz, Inxec, Switchdance and Los Suruba to name just a few, a 10th anniversary seems to be the natural flow of things. Suruba X started its journey in 2009 when the minds of Alvaro and Delmar joined forces to create an electronic, deep and dark imprint to express their most sophisticated musical curiosities.
Once more art and music are blended in a 26-track compilation that highlights the gems of the label from the last ten years. This album is meant to show you a sample of the scope of Suruba X and all the potential that it has gained over the past decade.
The dark side of anything is appealable to anyone and this is Los Suruba´s dark, and demanding side where the duo play with styles that oscillate between down tempos, melodic techno vibes, and intense vocals with deep meanings, electric synths and penetrating bass.
The artwork comes from Delmar´s passion for street art. He picked for the covers a particular artwork, the Brazilian Pixaçao. This is a controversial style of graffiti that mainly transgresses the visual image of most of the public spaces of cities throughout Brazil. Its aesthetics infringes hegemonic aesthetics, which is why it´s criminalized. They found this particular style to align with their sweet escape thorough shameless vocals and naughty beats.
A must have in any music lover´s collection that assures a trip, a dream and a dance.
