about

-----[Español]------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"La voluntad de volver a las raíces para desde ahí otear mejor el horizonte cuajó, en la novel escena chip mexicana, en el sui generis “Chip Folk”. La premisa del proyecto es tomar ritmos o piezas autóctonos, folklóricos, y convertirlos en una adaptación chiptune que sea a la vez fiel y novedosa. El resultado es insólito: desde los cascabeles prehispánicos que abren el álbum y los aires recogidos de las tradiciones populares jarochas y tapatías, hasta las creaciones personales basadas en la esencia musical de “lo mexicano”, el escucha puede estar seguro de asistir a un recorrido auditivo por los paisajes mexicanos, una especie de lienzo del Dr. Atl edición 8 bit, que no hallará en ninguna otra parte del mundo".

-----[English]-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"The need of returning to oneself’s roots in order to have a better sigh of the forthcoming crystallize, among the younger generation of Mexican chip musicians, in the sui generis album “Chip Folk”. The premise of this effort is to take Mexican folk rhythms or songs and turn them into a chiptune adaptation, both innovative and faithful to the original. The result is unique: from the Aztec rattles heard in the opening track and the tunes influenced by the regional jarocho and tapatío song traditions, to the individual compositions based in the musical essence of what is “Mexican”, the listener will experience a vivid sound trip through Mexico’s landscape, much like the one you can find in a Dr. Atl’s canvas, but in 8bit version; something you won’t find elsewhere in this world".
