Premiere: Los Pulpitos – Sepia


Members of Africaine808 and Dengue Dengue Dengue team up for a new release on Terra Magica Rec.

Another world lay beneath the dark, murky waters; one unseen by human eyes and untouched by human hands. Though the surface remained placid and still, below there was much more at play. Strange creatures and amphibious beings lurked and whispered in strange tongues amongst the sea grass that cast its leaves high overhead, viciously swaying as one when the current passed through. It was clear that there were cunning plans being masterminded down here, ones that could overthrow everything on solid ground…


Los Pulpitos is the brainchild of Dirk Leyers from Africaine 808 and Felipe Salmón of Dengue Dengue Dengue fame. Born in the depths of the pandemic, the two talented friends and “tentacle tech” originators fuse their harmonic love of polyrhythmic percussion, dub-wise vibrations and traditional Candomblé and Cumbia rhythms on this 12″ for Terra Magica Records. But that’s not all, within these bubbling creations there’s so many more influences at play: a little bit of psychedelia, a peppering of Ragga and breaks as well as some dubstep and UK bass wobble, to rattle off a few – it’s music to move your body and soothe your mind.
