‘BARRIO is a native of Cuba and living in France.
He explores a psychedelic form of beatmaking by using raw progressive rock samples coming straight from the 70’s era in combination with dirty African loops. He creates a truly mystic listening experience, a mind-altering trip, animated by heavy smoky beats.
BARRIO’s first appearance was in 2009 under his ROOQ alias, on the Mochilla album “Beats and the abstract truth” mixed by RAS G.
He also produces also for the futurist duo “MY NINA” on Cosmonostro Records.
His last LP of musical hi jacking “Play This Only At Night” diggs deep into its own groove, marking Hip Hop beat music and the beat scene with a hot iron.
Each tape of the serie explores a musical continent. They are created to be dense continuous pieces, combining wild beats with prophetic messages.
BARRIO is also the designer behind the phenomenal covers, and takes care of his own orchestration and mastering.
My Bags is proud to work on releasing these highly collectible tapes and reify BARRIO’s universe.’
