Dos Santos Anti-Beat Orchestra 45RPM 7"

$6.99

Side A: Cafeteando!

Side B: Camino Infernal/Phantom Weight

Clear some room for Dos Santos Anti-Beat Orchestra from Chicago. Definitively Latin-tinged, it’s hard to pin an exact genre or sub-genre on the group. For their forthcoming 45RPM 7” on Electric Cowbell, we picked 3 songs off of their recent EP "Fonografic" that highlight their instrumental muscle, delivering groovy Chicano-noir atmospherics simmering atop a boiling pot of cowbells, congas, and timbales. The band's signature formula of guitar-heavy, percussion-driven sounds moves further into the fierce sonic terrain of traditional Latin rhythms and hard-hitting funk and soul. Side A’s “Cafeteando” is a dubbed out descarga that nods to an imagined meeting in the lab between a young Willie Colon and Mad Professor. “Camino Infernal/Phantom Weight” on the B-side percolate as a B-movie action sequence of a nail-biting chase scene. The sound is at once an urgent, uptempo psychedelic cumbia complete with twangy, reverb-drenched guitar then halfway through resolves itself into a commanding strut of Latin funk badassery that vacillates between time signatures yet never steps out the deep groove trench that these lads dig. Heavy-weight vintage salsa descarga and organic cumbia vibes that will surprise you at every turn. Essential hot sauce for your record tote!
