Mexican Instrumental, Psychedelia & Jazz
If Salvador Dali ever made a heist movie, then Mexico’s TROKER would have been the soundtrack. Their sound careens between the sublime and the dangerous, the composed and the improvised, where metal riffage merges with powerhouse funk, DJ scratching, and horn lines pulled from both jazz and mariachi traditions of their homeland (Guadalajara, México). In 2016, they were named by RollingStone Mexico as one of top 20 Mexican artists breaking boundaries and made their premiere at the Monterey Jazz Festival in September. In early 2017, NPR released a Tiny Desk Concert, ahead of the release of their next EP. In October 2018, they released IMPERFECTO on Ropeadope Records.
