Hola donde queso mi amor! I don't know what any of that means, but those are like the only Spanish words I know, and with Chernobyl getting ready to reveal his Le Cheval EP, I'm starting a mini-Carnivale here in Beastonia right now. I don't think I'll have any opposition, especially after you give your ears to these beats. Olé!
Furthering a tropical gypsy house sound that is spreading like wildfire lately, Chernobyl realized that his homeland in the south of Brazil has similar sounds to offer. In the state of Rio Grande do Sule (near Argentinia), musicians use the accordion in tango tunes that invoke sounds of eastern Europe. Le Cheval mixes this gaucho-goodness with a baile-funk beatbox and a cool contemporary vibe.
Also on the EP is Hooli-Gun-Yo, a colloaboration with Bazooka Boom form Moscow. The dudes combine their ironic post-apocalyptic zombie gangster raps with Russian folk elements.
Dancefloor fix-ups of the title track come from Horatio, Cavalo Horse, Lorcan Mak and Yolanda Be Cool. Chernobyl's Le Cheval EP is out June 16 via Exploited. Get a taste below.
