Caramelo Haze is the newly-formed all-star outfit featuring Grammy Award-winning Beto Martínez, Alex Chavez (Dos Santos), Victor “El Guámbito” Cruz (Nemegata), and John Speice (Grupo Fantasma, Brownout). Their debut album on Nacional Records, “NOESTASAQUÍ” is a bold neon suite that glows in the lo-fi undertow of sunburst EQ sweeps and roasted 808s. From post-cumbia synth vamps to disco-inflected circum-Caribbean psychedelia, the genius and versatility of these musicians shines on this release and their live show. Their music journeys through a sonic landscape where Afro-Colombian folklore meets steamy South Texas soul, where psychedelic Americana blends with the soaring highland sounds of Central Mexico. The end result is an electro neo-sōl speculative odyssey: a sense of adventure and uninhibited experimentation all wrapped up in the sunbaked offing of a caramelo haze.
