Acid Coco’s First Album is an Emotional Exploration of Colombian Rhythm
'Mucho Gusto' LP is scheduled for October 2 release.
Acid Coco is the work of Colombian duo Paulo Olarte and Andrea. Olarte has been a known name in electronic dance music for many years, with releases on Diynamic. Andrea began singing in school, and she performed with Colombian reggae band DonKey Records before leaving to Berlin, Germany, where she presently sings in world fusion band Hinsetzen Pause.
Acid Coco is the pair’s first recorded collaboration, and it aims to give us a “journey through the beautiful colors of music.” The project channels cumbia, punk, champeta, reggaeton, and other tropical rhythms with electronic sounds.
These tracks were recorded in Geneva, Switzerland, in frenzied sessions that doubled as therapy. The pair laid down ideas, lyrics, music, and memories on tape in a creative purge driven by “emotional and physical collapse,” the label explains.
In advance of the album, Acid Coco have shared lead single “Yo Bailo Sola,” meaning “I dance alone,” and “El Amor de Mis Amores,” an explosion through punk and reggaeton-infused vibes, both streaming below.
