Pioneering Mexican electronica trio TITAN return with DAMA, their first new album in eleven years. The lead single, “Dama Fina(Fine Lady)”, is a chugging minimal groove highlighted by a lilting melody.
Fans have come to expect TITAN mixing wildly divergent styles and pushing boundaries, and their return is as eclectic and innovative as ever. Not only is DAMA produced by Nick Launay, (Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Grinderman, Arcade Fire, INXS, David Byrne, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs), the album also features several collaborators, including icons Gary Numan, Egyptian Lover, and Siobhan Fahey from Bananarama.
TITAN emerged from the ashes of industrial band Melamina Ponderosa in 1992, when Emilio Acevedo and Julián Lede first met. Jay de la Cueva (Molotov, Microchips, Fobia, Moderatto) joined the band soon after. TITAN's debut album, Terrodisco was released by BMG in 1995 and was followed up by the EP C'mon Feel the Noise. Beastie Boys’ label Grand Royal released two more EPs featuring 40 remixes of "Corazón" in 1999. In 2000, Virgin Records UK released the album Elevator worldwide. After an extended hiatus, in 2005 TITAN released the eponymous album,Titán on Mexican indie label Nuevos Ricos. In the years following that album, TITAN has spent most of their time touring, mainly in Mexico, playing at major events such as Corona Music Fest, Reading Festival, Tansmusicales and other Nuevos Ricos showcases. In between TITAN’s releases, Julian, Emilio and Jay have focused on other their other musical projects Silverio, and Sonido Lasser Drakar.
All the elements that made TITAN a distinct hit within Latin America’s electronic music scene are present and alive as ever today. DAMA was released on October 2016 by ÉPICO in Latin America and by ATP Recordings globally.
Silverio, better known as the nasal caveman, is the maximum exponent of latin macho brutality, and is the champion of menial, low-class dancefloors.
Originary from Chimpancingo, Guerrero, Silverio reached Mexico City in 2002 and hit the dancefloor with his first single "Yepa Yepa Yepa" which was censored by regional television in Mexico City. A few years later, with the help of his controversial live show, which comes to life under the influence of his electronic music mixed with excesses, women, cursing and obscenities, Silverio gets catapulted to Europe and the United States.
Your Imperial Majesty, as he has been baptized by his loyal followers, is regarded by the press as the missing link of electronic music and is self-described as the elephant man music industry.
"Josh Anzano’s discography is nothing short of diverse and widespread, ranging from some of his earlier material released alongside La Otracina or Titan – a pair of psychedelic jazz / prog rock acts out of Brooklyn, NY, with whom he played guitar – or as Corinne, Anzano’s niche ‘80s-era freestyle moniker, which he managed to secure a pair of memorable releases on Jacques Renault’s On The Prowl imprint. Anzano has also employed the guitar for productions from the likes of Chaka Khan, LA locals DJ Harvey and Magic Touch – he’s featured prominently on the 2011 Magic Touch release (‘I Can Feel The Heat,’ on 100% Silk) as well as in Harvey’s experimental Locussolus project, which took the unlikely trio of musicians to the steps of Berlin techno institution Berghain & beyond. More recently, Anzano appeared on the third iteration of Throne of Blood’s ‘Moon Rock’ beat-less compilation series in 2015, as well as on the VOW label in 2016 with a 2-track heater more than equipped for late night club play. His solo material is a raw testament to the background that he holds in musically-trained, psychedelic-laced groups of the experimental variety – acid drenched guitars, dizzying percussion & synthy disco chuggers included.”
