Frikstailers + Alejandro Paz | Review 06/12/12

Soundway x Huntleys & Palmers presented Batida, Frikstailers, Auntie Flo, Drumtalk & Alejandro Paz. This show was broadcasted live from 7pm – 11pm, Thursday 6th December.Check it out!

Frikstailers dress themselves up in tropical muppet drag—they cap their heads with multicolored wigs and bug-eyed glasses as if to under-emphasize their skillful noodling on keyboards, racks and drum machines. But whether it’s an entertaining distraction or they’re just incredibly fond of blacklight, everything the duo does is psychedelic multicolor madness—even a performance on Argentinian television is juiced up by trippy cartoons and banana-skirted honeys—and their ZZK mixtape is a perfect intro to their steez, all outre cumbia circuit-bent through neon dance tunes that interpret the most electric side of South America. Whether they’re cumbia-izing synthy tracks like “Hold the Line” or technofying their own take on traditional Buenos Aires rhythms, clearly these are two dudes who know well the hypnotic effects of a pulsing strobe. They’re playing some dates in the States soon, tracklist and tour stops after the jump.
