Esp.....
Grabado totalmente en venezuela, MECHA es un disco producido por Raul Monsalve (bajista de KRé) donde la fusion del jazz con el afrobeat, funk, dub, percusion caribeña y sonoridades latinas se mezclan en una excelente grabacion para brindar uno de los albums mas redondos a nivel sonoro que haya publicado la Discográfica Pilla hasta la fecha.

review por DjMetra:

“”Chamo eso si es afro de verdad, candela arriba , candela abajo, saca la machaca, corta la cabeza, come los zamuros, beba la aguardienta”, quien haya ido a las fiestas de san Juan en Curiepe sabe a que me refiero, el sonar de los quitiplas, hipnótico sin parar, parece tener su origen en las entrañas mismas de el continente africano. Mas de un Venezolano a sido testigo de la salida del sol mientras al compás de una guarapita a sido cautivado por esta experiencia. Para Raul Monsalve esto fue lo que literalmente prendió la mecha, para plasmar en un excelente primer disco, todo su bagaje cultural. Mecha es un disco cargado de expresividad y espontaneidad en un mundo actual saturado de opciones preconcebidas. Nos transporta a lo que debió ser la sensación de libertad musical de los setentas. AFROBEAT, REGGAE, JAZZ con toque VENEZOLANO“
