Los Hacheros - Pilon
Since joining forces in 2011, Los Hacheros have been setting dance floors aflame with their astounding live shows. Now with the release of their debut album, Pilon, they are ready to introduce to the world their revelatory new sound. Recorded live onto a classic 388 Tascam tape machine, Pilon captures a gritty soulfulness that has been absent far too long from modern latin music.
Combining the raw emotion of Papote Jimenez's vocals, Eddie Venegas and Itai Kriss' powerful mambos, and Jacob Plasse's psychedelic tres guitar, Los Hacheros have a created a sound that is both unique and timeless. On Pilon,one hears echoes of legends such as Ray Barretto, Fania, and Arsenio Rodriguez, but with an immediacy and power that is unmistakably New York now.
