The sound of Dembooty comes to Barcelona
To hear the call of Dembooty is to hear the call of three of the defenders of the freest, most forward-thinking zones of club culture, of one of the most hectic and interesting parties in Madrid. Together with Brava - who appears on Friday at Sónar by Night - Umami and CRKS290 (pronounced ‘Cuco’) are in charge of transmitting Dembooty's message to the world. Their styles are both contrasting and complementary. Umami carefully makes selections from across dance music: bass, funk, dembow, afro, footwork, dancehall, breaks, experimental club, anything between 80 and 170 bpm. CRKS290, on the other hand, stands out for their ability to mix anything and everything from the UK continuum - UK garage, grime, UK funky- with reggaeton or even Brazilian baile-funk. From their Dembooty base-camp, they’ve already taken these contrasting rhythms and low frequencies to big venues and festivals across Spain. Now they’ll bring it to Sónar.
