[Video Premiere] Jaijiu x Medix Cielx – Respuesta (Official Video)


“?? !!”
“Pregunta / Respuesta” is Spanish for Question / Answer or, more aptly, Call / Response) encloses an afro club cornucopia sprouting out of Buenos Aires urban jungle, raw, dancefloor-ready beats, and simple, dark melodic lines: A latinx tribute to the array of African rhythms that for years now have taken centre stage in leftfield club music. Although it’s not the first time Medix Cielx (Sky Parnes, FKA Sückie) and Jaijiu (Elías Musiak) –both part of Argentinian label, Agva join forces, “?? !!” is a product of confinement that addresses and embodies in its execution the scope of online communication. The production process was marked by the exchange of musical ideas in a two-way fashion of proposal and subsequent elaboration. Being percussive instrumental tracks, they showcase some of the dialectic dynamics which can be found synchronically in percussive ensembles, but here laid out on a digital blueprint. The collaborative union behind “?? !!” reinforces the hybrid and eclectic character of the rhythmic ideas that progressively emerge. Guaracha and funk carioca stained batida, bass, and even candombe surfacing on the last part of Pregunta. Both tracks are based on the playful exploration of rhythm, their complex patterns, and tone and EQ variations reminiscent of producers such as DJ Firmeza and Lechuga Zafiro. The tracks’ pace complements the dialectic game they capture, in the suspended and inquisitive character of Pregunta, and in the more direct and urgent Respuesta.
