Now Hear This: Mexican Institute Of Sound | Distrito Federal

I'm getting caught up on the good albums that have come out lately. Like this one.


THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE:Mexican Institute Of Sound’s latest album is a love letter to Distrito Federal, now CDMX. It features collaborations with: Dan The Automator (Gorillaz), Graham Coxon (Blur), Sergio Mendoza, Duckwrth, BIA, Cuco, Banda Misteriosa and La Perla from Colombia.

Mexican Institute of Sound, the brainchild of Camilo Lara, creates irresistible beats for the global dance floor. At home in Mexico City, Sao Paulo, Lagos, Mumbai or New York, Camilo’s music is the sound of the new capitals of world culture, thumping into the night. Brash and bright, his live shows can only be described as punk performances that bring down the house every single time. This ethos has taken him around the globe, performing in every single continent.

His work has landed him one Grammy and four Latin Grammy nominations, and he has produced artists ranging from Los Angeles’ Azules (scoring the best-selling Mexican album of the last 25 years), Lila Downs, Norah Jones and Band of Horses. He has remixed Beck, Beastie Boys, Interpol, among others. He has collaborated with a wide range of artists including Cuco, Ludmilla, Bonde do Rolé, Sly & Robbie, Toots and the Maytails, Gogol Bordello, Tom Tom Club. He hosts his own radio station on Grand Theft Auto V. He was the musical consultant for Pixar’s Coco (where he even had a cameo!), and his music has been featured in Narcos, Breaking Bad, Y Tu Mamá También, Californication and Ugly Betty,to name a few. Spanish newspaper El Pais named him one of the 50 Most Influential People in Latin America. Quien magazine named him one of the 50 People Who Are Transforming Mexico. He stays busy.”
