The first release from Mexico's tribal guarachero movement gestures towards both the past and future of this buzzy scene and the teenage hipsters behind it. The album's first half is all slick, flossing club anthems that intertwine electro-cumbia shuffle with dance and hip-hop beats, like a kind of alt-regional-Mexican LMFAO (see: "Tipsy"). But the second half gets back to the movement's roots: the unlikely, irresistible marriage of electronic dance music with pre-Colombian folk music, governed by wiggling synth-scrapers and dedicated to the pointy-boots-wearing raver-cowboys who dance to it.
