Legruu The Andes are calling. They want me to reconnect with nature. I tell them I've been thinking about it, but I don't dare to. I'm too comfortable where I am, but deep inside me I know I'm not 100% fulfilled. Something is missing. It hasn't rained in my city for months. I miss the smell of wet earth, but here, I only smell concrete and asphalt. I love when I go to the forest and my skin feels the touch of trees and plants. Like a caress from a mother to her child. What better feeling than that. Favorite track: Danza de Visiòn.

Inglewoodz Such a vibrant heaviness, molding sprouting in a bed of nutritios rainforest earth, what a soil to grow your tribal mammuth album in! Love it! <3 Favorite track: Tzantza.

Ecuador’s rising son, Nicola Cruz, returns to Multi Culti with Cantos de Visión

One of the core artists in Multi Culti’s diverse catalog of globally-inspired dance music, Nicola Cruz is deservedly becoming the poster-boy for a new wave of producers that fuse indigenous sounds with internationally professional production, creating something entirely new, sonically. It’s a genre that Multi Culti ambassadors Dreems & Thomas Von Party refer to as ‘Folklorica,’ a psychedelic replanting of folkloric roots, and nowhere is it more skillfully executed than on Nicola’s tracks. 

Following up on his debut LP for Latin America’s indie powerhouse, ZZK Records, the return to Multi Culti sees Cruz sharpen his focus toward igniting the downtempo dance-floors that have slowly been gaining ground in clubs and festivals recently. This new club sound is at the fore on lead track Tzantza,  already an integral part of Nicola’s live shows and DJ sets at festivals like Sonar and Mutek. What stands out most, other than the sampled lead Marimba, is the sheer mass of the kick drum, the immense pushing power of this 102 bpm chugger. Bruxo and Danza de Visión follow suit, flexing some seriously first-world mixing mojo, elevating Cruz’s work to heights that the growing legions of flute-bearing imitators will only reach in their stoned dreams. 

The vinyl package will also feature Mantis and Invocación, off his debut Multi Culti EP, two incredible tracks that will finally get the 12” real estate they deserve. A remix EP will be following in February, featuring remixes from Jaja, Argentina’s Uji, Multi Culti’s own Thomas Von Party, and more.
