Uruguayan producer Pobvio turns Candombe into stellar club anthems on new EP via SALVIATEK label :.

What happens when an AI learns from nature and decides to imitate it in order to survive?” This is the first sentence from Soundcloud description of SALVIATEK label and also one of the concepts that Uruguayan artist Pobvio keeps developing through his artistic approach to music like metaphors for dystopian realities. After the sixth editions of SALVIATEK club nights that take place in Uruguay´s capital, Montevidéu, by the hands of Pobvio and his friend Lechuga Zafiro, they turn it on a record label that presents now the first official release “Syndombe Club EP. Deeply inspired by taking Candombe ( Uruguayan music and dance style originating with African slaves) to cosmic places, the six tracks of the EP exalts the music and movement rituals for the dance floor.

Nonconformist by nature and committed to bring fresh air to the local and stagnant electronic dance scene, Pobvio blends the immense diversification of Latin America rhythms such Salsa, Cumbia, Reggaeton, with vanguard styles like Dubwise textures, Baile Funk beats, Grime hybrids, Philly/Baltimore/Jersey Club mutations, exquisite UK Bass, House, Techno and everything he feels connected to experiment with. As you may know, electronic music directly depends on the tools you work with and Uruguay like lots of other countries did not had access at same time to the technological advances back in the days, so this DIY spirit based on new techniques and improvised ideas runs in the blood of this young producer that is making a name by his own. The EP closes with two superb remixes from NAAFI affiliates Lechuga Zafiro and Imaabs, two more exciting artists bringing peripheral rhythms to the centre of urban music.
