Me Gusta 2nd Birthday with El Búho & Joaquín Cornejo on Saturday 10th November 2018
It's been 2 years of Me Gusta... yep 2 years.... Time really does fly! We've invited some very special musicians to celebrate and show our appreciation to all the artists, venues, promoters, organisations and most of all the people who danced non-stop till the break of dawn with us.
Latin-electronica connoisseur El Búho enters the depths of Hidden's basement for his Manchester debut with a one-off live set. Alongside him finds another bespoke live set from Ecuadors Joaquín Cornejo exploring raw entities from his surroundings fusing traditional, contemporary and mind-bending downtempo rhythms. Adding to the occasion the team will transform Hidden's Basement once again into a whirlwind of amazonian ambience with projections, lighting installations and tribal wear creating a unique atmosphere euphoria. Sooo yep.. it’s gonna be another wild one. Grab your carnival wear and dress for the occasion!
Who are these guys?
El Búho - Live Performance
UK born El Búho , meaning ‘Owl’, is based in Paris but spent years living, working, playing and producing music in South America, primarily México City. El Búho seeks to bridge the gap between Latin American rhythms, digital bleeps with ethnic instruments and enhanced bass lines. He is without a doubt one of the main referents in the new movement of Latin American folkloric music and cumbia mixed with electronic pulses.
Joaquín Cornejo - Live Performance
Joaquín Cornejo is a young producer, composer and DJ from Quito, Ecuador. Inspired by instances of imperfection, spontaneity and intuition his sound explores the relationship between the primal and the ethereal, particularly through the influence of electronic music and ancestral Latin-American rhythms. His releases on Konn Recordings, Shango Records and Shika Shika have definitely made waves and November the 10th falls perfectly with Joaquín fresh off his Berlin tour.
Me Gusta DJs As you know by now the Me Gusta crew never hesitate to explore the musical horizons that span this beautiful planet we call Earth. Expect an array of Afro-Latin rhythms with Cumbria, Kuduro, Funk, Salsa, Middle Eastern, Dancehall, World Electronic Bass and beyond.
