The new album comes with 13 heavy political club tracks! Cumbia grooves and trumpet sounds of mexican mariachis mixed up with basslines, effects and explosive beats: MEXICAN INSTITUTE OF SOUND!
POLÍTICO comes at a precarious time in Mexican politics, with escalating drug violence and a bitterly contested presidential election. CAMILO LARA explains, “A year ago I woke up and next to my house the police had seized four tons of explosive C-4 ready to be detonated in some kind of violent attack. I found it not only impressive to know that I was sleeping next to 4,000 kilos of destructive material, but that C-4 was in the heart of Mexico City. That same day, I started writing my album, which would later be called Politico. Mexico is the sum of C-4 explosives and hearts.” The result is an album of explosive club bangers that bridge worlds between Mexico City, Tokyo, Barcelona and New York, traversing LARA’s wild musical imagination with a witty sense of humor. The lead single MÉXICO has already caused a politcal stir in Mexican media. The new album also features the song EL JEFE which was recently chosen as the theme to the new A&E television series about Mexican wrestling, EL LUCHADOR.
