Psychedelic Latin American hip-hop ballads contrasting love and danger

Producer Cotola (Agua Negra, Obia le Chef & El Cotola) presents the beginning of an instrumental project influenced by the sound of bolero and hip hop: Narco Bolero.

Cotola is an artist, producer and video director known for raw, heavy productions from the epicentre of French Canadian and South American hiphop culture ( Agua Negra, Obia & Cotola,).
Leader of the band Agua Negra and hometown hero of Montreal’s music scene for more than 15 years as a producer for lots of projects, vocalist, and videographer. Cotola performed in South America, Mexico, and across Canada, as well as been a guest on radio shows around the world. Last year he launched, Santa Magdalena. It combines Deep Afro Latin House with influences ranging from Native South American music to analogue sampling techniques, and has been warmly received by critics (see EPK below). Now he’s getting ready to present the beginning of an instrumental project influenced by the sound of bolero and hip-hop: Narco Bolero.

This album will highlight the special secret ingredient that has defined his sound over the years: bolero. Romantic South American ballads from way back occasionally fused with psychedelic rock and jazz to create a haunting sound. The tracks on the album are inspired by warm and melancholic melodies from the extensive collection of rare old bolero vinyls that Cotola has been cultivating over the years (including Los Angeles Negros, Tericolas, Pasteles Verdes).

The arrangements are contemporary, touching an emotional chord through the sound of the ballads, emerging as they did in the same generation as the height of African-American soul music, when Motown and Stax Records reigned supreme. The somber musical offering is amplified by a romanticizing sampling of quotes from obscure spanish gangster flicks, highlighting the contrast between love and danger, a thematic tension that drives the soundtrack of an illicit music purveyor.
