MITÚ TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM ON ZZK RECORDS AUGUST 25, 2017.
Colombian electronica duo delivers fantastic fourth release, COSMUS.
Mitú is the electronic music duo of Julian Salazar, ex-guitarist of Bogota's psychedelic cumbia band Bomba Estereo, and Franklin Tejedor, a master percussionist of Palenque's great rhythmic traditions. Following the release of their most recent Siempre EP (2015) and their two previous LPs, the hit record Balnear (2014) and debut Potro (2012), the Colombian jungle techno duo are gearing up for the release of their new album, Cosmus. In a break with the group’s tendency to record albums in relatively short time frames, the album was recorded over a longer period, giving greater importance to the sound recording of ideas at the time of their conception and less importance to post-production.
This time around, Mitú took the time to let the record mature in the studio and get the ideas to come together, making an album in which the sound is far removed from that of their previous records, almost totally electronic and minimizing the acoustic parts, conceived with the intention of being performed live in its entirety.
As well as Julián Salazar (synthesizers) and Franklin Tejedor (electronic percussion), the only outside participation on Cosmus comes from singer Teresa Reyes, who provides vocals on the tracks Melgar and Fiebre. Reyes previously worked with Mitúon Balnear, the duo’s acclaimed second long play.
Cosmus can be summed up as Mitú’s purest album so far. Julián Salazar and Franklin Tejedor have come up with an aesthetically original sound, the product of years of work in the studio and on stage, presenting a selection of songs that trace with clearer, bolder lines the sound evolution of one of the most intense bands on the Latin American electronica scene.
Cosmus frames the duo’s vision perfectly, creating a clearer, deeper soundscape, allowing listeners to enter their musical universe from which the cosmology of their sound is defined.
The 1st single, Fiebre features Teresa Reyes on vocals and is out now!
