Description

On Otun, the breadth of Montoya's influences and tastes is at its most striking; the dulcet techno hum of "La Pastora" is perforated by sprightly flutes and percussion, while lead single "Solo Quiero" deploys a languid reggaeton pattern beneath Bogota rising star Pedrina's distorted, wilting croon anticipating a euphoric synthesiser-lead climax. The title track, featuring a sultry guest vocal from Nidia Gongora, is a fierce and vigorous club anthem, amplified by hissing synth pads and sordid breakbeats. Even a more straightforwardly techno track like "Tatacoa" is stylised with intoxicating Indian vocal samples, and more traditional folk selections like "Orun" still use an inobtrusive bassline drone. Montoya's palette is simultaneously expansive and curious, yet coherent, with a steadily melodic electronic through-line running through Otun's duration. Montoya absolutely sustains ZZK's pedigree of platforming the most exciting and inventive electronic artists from Latin America, joining the storied legacy already built by the likes of Nicola Cruz, Chancha Via Circuito, and King Coya.
