Duro returns with "Derrumbes Y Escaleras", the first collaboration from Iñigo Vontier & Theus Mago's upcoming album. The single is inspired by the Indian board game "Snakes and Ladders" and the hallucinogenic mushroom "psilocybe caerulescens" popularly known as "Derrumbe". This mushroom is one of the most important species in the country and was formerly used in prehispanic religious ceremonies. The trip comes with remixes by Englishman Chez de Milo and US duo Zillas On Acid.
His opener here is "Derrumbes Y Escaleras". Instantly you feel the effect of deep bass, ancestral flutes and psychedelic melodies coursing through your system, while the inner voices guide you to the deepest part of your being. Chez de Milo follows with a solid, rumbling percussion base, intoxicated flutes and synths laden you to the next existential plane.
The nine-minute Zillas On Acid’s trip uses the bassline to keep you lucid and present, while the flutes, frenetic arpeggios and percussion create an inner chaos. Inspired by the Mexican rave scene of the 2000s, the "Saiko Mix" has a catchy bouncy bass, rolling percussion and acid sounds that feel like melted lasers coming out of the speakers.
Closing the EP is the B-Side "Zumo Di Batuca", an experimental break cut. As it progresses the vocals and synthetic sounds disintegrate and melt into a solid, cyclical sound mix that keeps you in a trance state.
