Leave it to Nacional Records to come up with another great act! Introducing RH+ or formerly known as “Rock Hudsen” by their Santiago, Chile hometown.
Don’t let their hometown Santiago fool you though, these guys sound more like they came from London, Paris, Vienna or …..Greenland!
RH+ ‘Quintana Roo’ is simply original and was produced with the help from local beatmaster and Nacional label mate DJ Bitman. On first listen I’m sucked in by the atmospheric turntabling, efx and vocal sampling. It almost reminds me of the Orb! But don’t let that fool you, this is definitely an artist record not a dj record. Think Stereolab meets Bent on some songs, then Cicada Meets Hooverphonic and The Orb…Wow!
Quintana Roo is a tasty blend of chilled (almost ambient) grooves mixed with straight ahead pop-rock. Were playing 8 of 15 songs from “Quintana Roo” on AREA54 if that says anything.
