Natural as velcro and synthetic as leather, MIS is a good example of how borders exists only in maps. It’s very difficult to classify and categorize the music of the Mexican Institute of Sound, after all how can one truly interpret the feeling and emotion of such a conceptual sound? Rich with electronica influences, beats, synthesizers, playful atmospheres that evolve with the song, his music is clearly a union of the past of Mexico’s diverse cultural life with what the future of cosmopolitan Mexican music may become.
About Afro Funke'
: The weekly club, Afro Funke', which
celebrated its sixth anniversary in June 2009, was the brainchild of
Afro Roots star, Rocky Dawuni, who realized LA's need for a night
dedicated to African music, culture and art and it's far reaching
legacy around the world. Dawuni, who's based in LA and his native
Ghana, together with talent booker and photographer Cary Sullivan
created Afro Funke', bringing on board resident DJ and partner DJ
Jeremy Sole of KCRW. Each week Afro Funke’ presents international guest
DJs, live band performances, guest musicians, dancers, cutting edge
films, record release parties, fundraisers, fashion shows, art
installations, crafts and more. Sole spins his unique "Musaics," or
sound collage-blends of hip hop, jazz/funk, dub reggae, afro beat, and
remixed world beats; pieced together with tribal breaks, and uplifted
by dubbed-out turntable manipulation and live instrumentation.
