El Búho charts his time and travels in Mexico on Tamoanchan EP

Tropical music producer El Búho’s latest release Tamoanchan EP is a “humble dedication” to the people, the beauty, the landscapes and the the darkness of México.

Having spent two years living in Mexico City and travelling around the country, El Búho charts his time through four tracks on Tamoanchan, featuring cumbia rhythms, deep basses and wavering flutes, alongside field recordings of crickets, forests and festivals.

Cumbia de Totl (Cumbia of the Owl narrates the journey out of Mexico City), rising above the mountains and into Mexico´s beautiful rolling landscapes. The post-dancefloor La Hora Más Oscura pays homage to the darkest hours before dawn.

Noche Tepotzotlán, which was written on a return to the mythical town just outside of Mexico City, is an enigmatic electronic groove that references being in transit.

Heroíca, referring to Heroíca Veracruz the capital of one of the most troubled and violent states in Mexico but also one of the most historic and beautiful, musically reflects its “history and beauty” rather.
