Verraco has unveiled Grial, his debut album.
Programmed between Medellín and Barcelona over the course of two years, Grial rejects the notion of a singular Latin American musical identity and paints Verraco’s own vision of South American IDM, blending perreo, jungle ambience, and mountainous brain-dance. It follows three EPs, all on Verraco’s Insurgentes label.
The album relies heavily on field recordings, from rural chants flowing down a mountain range to road bikes and gang outbreaks lighting up cityscapes. The 10 album tracks are mastered by Rashad Becker.
Launched in 2017 in Medellín, Insurgentes sits at the core of a thriving local music scene, releasing unorthodox rave, electro, and IDM from Latin American producers. Earlier this year, it released an EP from Tomás Urquieta.
