Caboclo by Lagartijeando

Support from BBC Radio 3, Le Mellotron, Worldwide FM, Dom Servini (Wah Wah 45’s), Trax Magazine, DJ Cal Jader and more.

Lagartijeando is synonymous with pushing the contemporary Alt-Latin electronic scene forwards along with his contemporaries Nicola Cruz, Chancha Via Circuito and El Buho. Strongly influenced by his travels through Latin America, his signature psychedelic electronic tracks blend everything from traditional folk from the Bolivian alti-plano to the jungle beats of Brazil.

Since signing to ZZK records (Nicola Cruz, Chancha Via Circuito) in 2009 he has gone on to release on Waxploitation (Gnarles Barkley, Dangermouse) and Wonderwheel Recordings (Nickodemus, El Buho) where his latest album entered the Bandcamp top 100 albums of 2017. Renowned for beautiful textures and layers in his production work, Lagartijeando has garnered support from the likes of The Fader, Remezcla, KCRW, NPR and many others.

Caboclo is Portuguese for a person with mixed indigenous Brazilian and European ancestry. The three track EP meshes Afro-Brazilian rhythms with Chacarera and house beats. The EP is a celebration of the changing cultures and sounds of Latin America.
