Out of the boiling underground scene in Peru’s capital Lima emerges Animal Chuki. Ancient folk music from the Andes form the basis of this producer duo’s electronic sounds: Hypnotic, electric cumbia with intricate Farfisa melodies, gun sounds and some rather naughty rhythms. The duo is signed to the record label ZZK, specializing in the export of South America’s best latintronica.
