Out of the boiling underground scene in Peru’s capital Lima emerges Animal Chuki. Ancient folk music from the Andes form the basis of this producer duo’s electronic sounds: Hypnotic, electric cumbia with intricate Farfisa melodies, gun sounds and some rather naughty rhythms. The duo consists of Andrea Campos and Daniel Valle-Riestra, and is signed to the record label ZZK, specializing in the export of South America’s best latintronica. Their debut EP Capicua has attracted the attention of Vice, Afropop Worldwide and MTV – to name a few – and is hailed as a mix of sixties Peruvian chicha movement paired with the recent electronic cumbia from artists like Chancha via Circuita or Frikstailers.
