A Track A Day: Matias Aguayo

A Track A Day: Matias Aguayo

For LAGASTA’s ongoing series, we asked our friends to choose a favourite track or an album for these weird times, and share it with us along with a photo. A track a day keeps the bad vibes away. Today we welcome Chilean-born, Berlin-based artist, experimental electronic producer, and DJ Matias Aguayo . He shares with us one of his favourite records, Oswaldo Lares’ “Musica De Venezuela 1972-81” compilation.

In his own words: “This is a record that has stayed with me for some time. Osvaldo Lares studied and documented traditional Latin American music in general but the Venezuelan in particular. This compliation reflects this deep research and for me it has been always thrilling to study those ancestral rhythms and melodies. There is a lot to learn there and a lot go get inspired from. The music is somehow like the sounds of nature that you hear when you are deep in the forest. It is an endless source of rhythm and sound. For me during the times of lockdown , this music was much more easy for me to listen to than to listen to releases of music of today. This music is timeless and obviously not referential, doesn’t need a sound system and is deeply human.”
