Boomkat Product Review:
Maverick Afro-latin rhythms from Cómeme’s German/Chilean bosslad Matias Aguayo, notching his first new album in six years
Still as freaky as you like, and churned with rhythms that sound like a DJ divining the mythic 3rd track from rugged, disparate sources, Aguayo trustingly plays up to expectations on ‘Support Alien Invasion’, his 4th album total, landing 14 years since his seminal Kompakt debut.
"Paradoxically loose but pensile, hard but slinky, Aguayo’s 9 trax spell out a unique conception of dance music that draws from the best of Chilean and South American rhythmic heritage as well as wickedly slippery, up-to-the-second, psychoactive electronic production.
Tilting in with something like Actress meets Mark Ernestus at Machu Picchu in ‘The Fold’, the album delivers some deeply infectious workouts with the likes of ‘Pikin’, which sounds like Georgia sparring with Rian Treanor, along with the swingeing, impending drama of ‘2019’, and the bolshy oddity of ’Support Alien Invasion’, while a couple of cuts smartly tend to the downstroke in the crushed Cumbia or Tarraxho-compatible ‘Insurgentes’, and the beatless plane of ‘Between The Risings.’"
