:: KING COYA :: [Argentina]
King Coya, from the Northern Argentine Andes, is the digitalized, imaginary version of Gaby Kerpel, who blends traditional Colombian cumbia and Argentine folklore with electronic music.
Gaby Kerpel is a renowned Argentine composer whose credits include the score to De La Guarda and Fuerza Bruta and a soundtrack on Island Records of the same. Cumbias de Villa Donde is a collection of original down-tempo, electro folklorica that bridges indigenous music out of South America with global dance. Through King Coya, Gaby Kerpel reinterprets classic Colombian and Peruvian cumbias in the Zizek sound. The album includes guest appearances from Grammy-nominated Petrona Martinez and the renowned Cucu Diamantes. It’s the kind of record that redefines world music, allowing the listener a personal stake in audio globe trotting: King Coya’s music is both accessible and timeless, taking you home to the Andes mountains and beyond.
:: VILLA DIAMANTE :: [Argentina]
With a career of more than ten years, Villa Diamante is head of collective ventures as ZIZEK Club and ZZK Records and Buenos Aires’s indepen- dent record store Mercurio Disqueria, besides being responsible of bringing danceable music and rap guided tours into Buenos Aires National Fine Arts Museum. He is also the music selector for Combina- do Argentino de Danza, a very renowned argentinean dance company.
ZZK Records – a label born from the Zizek Club parties that he orga- nizes along Grant C Dull and DJ Nim – has discovered and edited Chancha Vía Circuito, Nicola Cruz, Fauna, Tremor, El Remolón, King Coya, Frikstailers, Mati Zundel and La Yegros, besides launching several compilations with emerging artist worldwide.
From 2004 on, Villa Diamante also digitally launches his own records, standing out “Por Amor al baile” (2013), milestone mash up record that blends argentinean new electronic music and rock, and the recent “Lanús Oeste” (2016) that gets argentinean hip hop scene straight to the dancefloor.

Populous is Andrea Mangia, a producer hailing from Lecce, Italy. In 2003, he made his first jaunt into the music world with the album Quipo (via Morr Music). In 2005 he
released Queue For Love, influenced by his reggae/hip-hop-infused surroundings (Lecce is knownas Italy’s Jamaica, as reggae and dancehall are extremely popular there) and in 2008 he released
Drawn in Basic. Both albums were widely received by international critics, earning him a spot on the global music map. He became known for the way he seamlessly blends digital sounds with the analog warmth of soul/hip-hop/whatever else he’s influenced by at the time.
In 2014, he released Night Safari via Bad Panda Records. The album, for Populous, was the embodiment of a dream. “This record is an imaginary nighttime safari to discover uncontaminated landscapes, strange creatures, wild animals, and mysterious lights,” he told Thump Magazine. The record received praise from international media outlets, and was revered for its ability to sonically transcend borders.
Azulejos, his forthcoming release, has a South American tinge to it (and is even partly in Spanish).
He moved to Lisbon, Portugal to start work on the album bringing with him only a laptop, a small MIDI keyboard, and a microphone. “Lisbon became both my studio and my muse,” he says. He wandered the city collecting field recordings— from trams to people singing on street corners.
Populous describes Lisbon as a city ‘halfway between South American soul and European modernity, African in some aspects, and dramatically melancholic.” He channeled these poignant
fusions into Azulejos, named for the typical tiled facades in Portugal— simultaneously bright and decaying. The album features collaborations with Nina Miranda of Smoke City and Ela Minus,
Creating raw music from analog sources including synthesizers drum machines and old analog tapes, Quixosis bets on constant change and experimentation as a way of creating a Cyber dada imaginarium, rooted in the old structures and memory of traditional songs of the ecuadorian andes, where he was born and lives. He has shared stages with acts such as Chancha Via Circuito (AR), Nicola Cruz, (EC), Aufgang (FR), Matanza (CI), El Búho (UK). Francesca Lombardo (IT), Voodoohop (BR) and Fidel Eljuri (EC), He has also played Festival Marsatac, Boiler Room, Festival Nomade (CH) , And Fiesta Deli (MX).
