Though he moved to Miami at age nineteen, percussionist-producer Andrés Ponce has kept his Venezuelan roots close to heart over the past two decades. Ponce’s primary output has been with bilingual psych-soul duo Elastic Bond since 2006 , but just within the past couple years Ponce’s synthesized his love of crate-digging, drumming, and electronic production through his solo project Venezonix.
Today, nearly a full two years after his first single premiered, Venezonix shared his debut EP, La Que Es, seven sultry tracks whose audacious rhythms and daring production almost mask how soothing the whole record is on the whole. So whenever you’re ready to check out for the weekend, self-administer an Afro-Venezuelan chill pill with “Aguacero”.
