Buscabulla's official blurb says it all really:

"Buscabulla (Spanish slang for troublemaker) is the music project of Puerto Rican designer and Brooklyn resident, Raquel Berrios and Luis Alfredo Del Valle. Heavily influenced by vintage Latin music like salsa gorda, Cuban psych and '80s Argentinian rock, the project combines both electronic and live instrumentation. Their diverse influences make up a hybrid that combines a mellow Caribbean sensibility with subversive wit."

I just stumbled upon this exotic duo browsing through the latest compilation from Kitsuné. With echoes of Trip Hop nostalgia and vintage Latin flavours their first self-titled EP is an instant treat for those musos always peckish for some exciting, fresh global grooves. I am hooked on these intriguingly eerie, ethereal songs since last night. Highly recommended.
