Sonorama Discos has arrived!!!
Hello friends and followers, we’re are very excited to announce the debut of Sonorama discos!!!
Sonorama is a Chicago-based DJ collective, which was founded in March 2010 and is fronted by Charly
Garcia and brothers Edgar and Marlowe Baca. Since then Sonorama has been energizing dance floors
and sound waves with a unique blend of vintage Latin sounds via events, podcasts and their blog.
Needless to say, Sonorama is a group of insatiable diggers and lovers of music on vinyl.
It is with this in mind that the group is excited to announce the formation and arrival of its own record
label, Sonorama Discos. The first release from the label is in collaboration with Dos Santos Anti-Beat
Orchestra, a band that has been steadily making the rounds at Chicago’s premiere live music venues
and festivals, bringing the sounds of pan-Latin American cumbia to audiences across the city with
their gritty, grassroots, danceable approach.
The special 7” (45 rpm) release includes two well-known singles from Dos Santos. The first, “Corre
Caballo” is a track that quickly kicks into a driving Latin funk groove building up to a hypnotic climax of
swirling guitars and funky organ. The flip side is the moody instrumental “Roberto’s Lament” which
serves up flavors reminiscent of Chile’s soul psych rockers, Los Angeles Negros. Soaked in layers of
reverb guitar and a trippy Hammond organ, it slowly swells leaving you wanting more.
Limited to 500 copies, the release is pressed on translucent yellow colored vinyl and packaged in a full
color sleeve with enclosed HQ digital download card. Sonorama Discos is proud to feature two tracks
from this great band, remastered and pressed onto vinyl for the first time ever. This release is set to
ignite music lovers across the globe.
