From the press release:

Buscabulla is a Spanish-language experimental pop project helmed by Raquel Berrios and Luis Del Valle. While both were born and raised in Puerto Rico, it wasn’t until 2011 while living in NYC that the producer, designer, songwriter, and DJ Berrios teamed up with producer and multi-instrumentalist Del Valle.

Together they formed “troublemaker,” or “Buscabulla,” as it’s known in Puerto Rican slang. Buscabulla’s debut EP was co-produced with Dev Hynes (aka Blood Orange) and subsequently released on the Kitsuné Musique label in 2014. Buscabulla’s second EP, II, was self-produced and self-released in January 2017.

Regresa was recorded in its entirety in Raquel and Luis Alfredo’s home studio in Puerto Rico, and is an emotional roller coaster in which they face and ponder the issues affecting them and Puerto Rican society at large: the frustration at the lack of opportunities for locals while tax breaks lure rich investors, self-doubt and anxiety, even the rise of religious fanaticism. Full of angst and an underlying sense of loss, Regresa — which means “return” or “to come back” — is a bittersweet, introspective, eye-opening journey.

Listen to a guest mix from Wajatta aka Reggie Watts and John Tejada

640 405

In this episode of Rhythm Lab Radio, we had a special guest mix from the duo Wajatta (Reggie Watts and Jon Tejada). We also featured new music from Faye Webster, Amber Mark, Tom Misch and Yusef Dayes, RJD2 and more.

Wajatta

Wajatta recently dropped their latest album “Don’t Let Get You Down” via Flying Lotus’ imprint Brainfeeder Records.

The name Wajatta is a mash-up of the artist’s last names. Having grown up with similar musical influences, Austrian-born Tejada and German-born Watts draw from their love of electronic music. Exploring the intersection between influences and innovation, the two describe Wajatta’s music as “electronic dance music with its roots in Detroit techno, Chicago house, ’70s funk and New York hip hop.” It’s a sound that is both familiar and wholly original — and, like all great dance music, ultimately life-affirming, as Watts vocalizes, sometimes without words, the joyful energy of his and Tejada’s funky, shape-shifting productions.

You listen to the exclusive mix in the second half of the show.
