For this first, we are pleased to receive the Uruguayan homie Selectorchico™ in full European tour to present his project Revisitando Macondo, an audio-visual retrospective of Macondo label, pioneer of subtropical music genre in the 70s in Uruguay. Selectorchico™ will perform a DJ set composed of 100% original records from the Uruguayan label. His selection, calibrated for the summer scorching heat, will include diverse and varied music styles: Bomba Candombe, Cumbia, Guaracha, Merengue, Mozambique, Porro, Plena Dura … but also Colombian gold nuggets, Haitian, Peruvian, Puerto Rican, African … rather unknown!

Selectorchico™ is the founder of Club Subtropical, a party entity / digital label led with NectarLechuga Zafiro (which we welcome) and Sonido Superchango, based in Montevideo, Uruguay.

· Philou (Couvre x Chefs, Mexico · Paris)

I’ll take part with great pleasure in the opening of the party and maybe a bit more! I will try to establish connections between rhythmics hand picked on dancefloors and sound systems around the globe in order to combine them in a common dynamic and resolutely dancing. Finally preispanic tribal, dembow, funk carioca, grime, Jersey club, future beats, Miami bass, ballroom, rap, reggaeton … are much closer to each other than they appear.
