Popstitute evokes a mellow yet profoundly obscure vision of pop, born in the mountains of Medellín, Colombia. It stands for a dance-oriented sound rich in potent drum patterns, infectious bass lines, cosmic retro-futurist pads and synthetic-melodic keyboards that contrast an inherent darkness of a bunch of introspective stories revealed by heartbreaking vocals.
In this project, the efforts of Daniel Obregón & Daniel Mecklar converge to propitiate sonorous atmospheres that inspire sensory journeys through memorable instants of electronic pop at its purest.
In contemporary culture, pop is redeemed by vanishing limits between mainstream and indie. Popstitute is just pop as a satiric way of understanding music beyond genres. If Pop defines every cultural expression, then it no longer defines anything at all.
Popstitute performs live as a band formed by Daniel Mecklar, Daniel Obregón, Pablo Melo & Nicolás Guevara.
