In 2014 Etoro Records released Plastico EP (his debut on the label), now El Traste is back again with “Musica Criolla” a brilliant 4 track EP with funky compositions, colliding more than ever his musical influences and orienting them to the club, the party.
Barranquilla born and now based in Bogota, the music of this Colombian artist combines Acid and IDM music with the Afro Colombian roots rhythms of the Atlantico region (his hometown) and the result is something unique.
The beautiful artwork was made by Etoro Records collaborator Pana Li and based on the spiritual beliefs and cosmology concepts of the Kogui people from Colombia.
Some artists feedback:
