Super Vato

Rebolledo // Cómeme
Format // CD // 2xLP+CD
He likes it basic, he loves it cinematic, and he never forgets to put the soul between his rhythms: Mexico's finest Mauricio Rebolledo has found a road to new frontiers because nobody beats the drum like him. Since his first appearance on the Cómeme label he emerged to one of the most spotlighted figures out of the furious tribe of DJs, producers, and connoisseurs of the art of living. Tracks like "Pitaya Frenesi", "Guerrero", or "Venganza Y Seducción" brought a raw rhythm energy back to the dance floor. His unpredictable DJ sets been always good for some fresh groove adventures – be it tripping dark '80's Disco, Techno, Funk, Cosmic, Synth-Wave, or Latin EBM style. But who is the man that doesn't smoke? What makes him unique in the Cómeme roster, that is guided and navigated by the Argentian Gary Pimiento, and the German-Chilean Matias Aguayo? His debut long player "Super Vato" tells dark stories about his soul with any rhythm, any psychotic bassline bass, and any melody. But before you listen you need to read. Here is his story: His home is La Pitaya – a area in the woods not far from the town Xalapa, the famous "Ciudad de las Flores" in the south-east of Mexico. How he become involved in music? All thanks to passion. He studied industrial design but he couldn't get the beat of Michael Jacksons "Billie Jean" out of his head. And what you gone do when you are trapped? Hit the road and make your dreams come true. Rebolledo headed south, went to the coastal town Playa Del Carmen, and opened the bar "Corvette Ninja", which he exactly designed like a place where he would like to hang out and listen to the same music that drives his heartbeat. He also hooked up with the legendary club "La Santanera", where he met during his DJ residency the Kompakt artists Tobias Thomas. Michael Mayer, Superpitcher, and Matias Aguayo. The all befriend him and the later took him under his wings to work on some fierce dance music that Rebolledo started to produce due the lack of right sounds for his DJ sets. The result was the first Cómeme release, "Bo Jack/Pitaya Frenesi" – an infectious double a-side EP that earned world-wide applause and took the dance floors by assault. Since then Rebolledo's life changed entirely. He designed the club, TOPAZdeluxe in north east Mexican town Monterrey which he co-runs and curates. He's travels constantly to South America, spends his summers in Europe, is half of the duo Pachanga Boys (with Superpitcher). His heart remains with the Cómeme tribe, blazing new trails in the dance music universe with a polyrhythmic jacking sound kaleidoscope that ranges from Cúmbia, Techno, Disco, Kwaito, Cosmic, to House. In this family of fearless musicians, Rebolledo created a trademark sound that he describes as music that is inspired by the emotions that emerge when he listens to the power of The Warriors movie theme, the energy of "Billy Jean´s" beat, the drive of the bass synth in Giorgio Moroder´s "The Chase", the dark motion of the bass rhythm that drives "Thriller", and the anger of the snare drum of a Mexican military march.

But the DJ and producer can't boogie alone. That's why he has delivered "Super Vato" – a album of ten hypnotic tracks that pool together all temptations of the night. Cinematic beat music, full of psychedelic drill. A record like a John Carpenter movie: foggy, dark, thrilling, and full of scary special effects. Rather basic, direct explosions that emerge from a simple gut feeling. Rhythmic sensations, that Rebolledo produced to fight back the lack of soul, the lack of funk, and the lack of black under the mirror ball. Created with a seventies vintage Woody organ, Hammond rhythm machine, shakers, cowbells, and the Mexican donkey jaw and fuelled by marching drums, synths, percussions, and roaring car engines. With the help of befriended singers and musicians such as Rodrigo Cano, Matias Aguayo, Superpitcher, Diegors, Raquel Wolff, Miriam Torres, and Philipp Gorbachev he grooves towards a new horizon and keeps it raw and basic. In between often highly infectious vocal melodies pop up like gloomy mantras of the creatures of the night that want to dance with a smile on their watery lips. Sometimes the lyrics are just offhanded fantasies and kinky variations of Mexican pop songs – all made to sing-a-long to a record that absorbs you the more and more you listen to it. At the end all you can do is clench your fist – cause he is gonna get you – the Rebolledo style!
