Boasting impressive releases on the likes of Defected, Exploited, Watergate Records, Pets Recordings and many more, established CDMX artist Theus Mago brings his post- psychedelic dance sounds to Parisian imprint Lumière Noire Records in the form of his ‘La Cabeza’ EP, with the title cut released as a single on 14th June ahead of the whole EPrelease on 28th.
The title cut’ La Cabeza’ (feat. Mera De La Rosa) is an engaging dancefloor-focused jam built around driving grooves and gritty analogue musicality. The track orbits a catchy vocal topline with modulating pitch and energy unfolding around it to carve out a quirky peak time roller with a subtle carnivalesque feel to its percussive cadence.
‘Taco House Galáctico’ (feat. fellow Mexico City native JNGLEJ) is next up, firing in more chunky grooves and fat low-end charm. Riding a wave of subtly jungle-inspired beats, hypnotic acid lines and ravey synth melodies, rolling around another head-turning vocal hook, it’s the second of three undeniably rambunctious groovers on the EP.
Also featured on the release, Guadalajara’s Mystery Affair delivers an imposing remix of the title cut’ La Cabeza,’ giving it a revamped, pumping underground house persona. Combining rolling harmonies and atmospheric transitions, its progression of high-voltage club-geared energy and mind-bending musical arrangement makes it a certified peak-time weapon.

La Cabeza” sample pack is out June 14th!
