Rhythm Foundation. May 3rd, 2008. 7:00 p.m.
DJ Popstars The Pinker Tones return to Miami, in support of their new release this spring for Nacional Records, Wild Animals. This concert was organized by the Rhythm Foundation and will take place at the North Beach Bandshell located at 7275 Collins Avenue in Miami Beach.
Professor Manso and Mister Furia, joined by DJ Nino, armed with turntables, mixers, soundboards and theremins, make euphoric Latin-tronica dance music from an eclectic blend of snippets – bossa nova, 60s lounge, soundtracks, groovy beats. “How can you mix Cuban music with a Moog and a recorder? Let’s try,” they say. From Barcelona’s history of anarchy and wealth, eccentricism and immigration, comes a group at the heart of the Catalan cultural explosion. First collaborating in summer 2001 for a TV soundtrack, they quickly became an in-demand group for Djs gigs and producing.
The opening set is by ArtOfficial, a Miami-based group. They describe their sound as a mix of jazz with Hip Hop, filtered through Miami’s unique Latin-dub sound. Like Barcelona, this city has also found a distinct rhythm from the clash of our own melting pot – traditional Latin rhythms mixed with electronica.
