SHREM'S CLUB BIZARRE PRESENTS: "SANDÍA" - Nathy Peluso


Jazzy cream is how Nathy Peluso intriguingly describes her music. This Argentinian genre-bending performer will soon be the talk of all the blogging musos, always hungry for fresh, unique sounds. The seductive mixture of meaty beats (produced by Madrid based Oddliquor), slow tempo rhythms, exaggerated vocal acrobatics, urban rhymes and clever samples all interweave to create a one of a kind soundscape which floats somewhere between the artistic galaxies of FKA Twigs, Bahamadia and Fatima. It's future soul, it's experimental Hip Hop, it's a Latin flavoured trip-hop extravaganza. "SANDÍA" is where Peluso's concept reaches new highs. It's both completely hypnotising and boundary-pushing for the more conservative music lovers out there. A rare and eccentric jewel.

The ever so trendy VHS-style video for "SANDÍA" was directed by Sandra Iglesias Rey. You can purchase the song on Bandcamp.





The producer of the track, Oddliquor has also just dropped his own new single "Sweet 90's" and what a sweet tune it is indeed:
