The trio created a compelling hybrid audio document of samples and live instrumentation, an aesthetic which has been manifesting itself in various parts of the globe for decades, but which remains only as fresh and progressive as the the musicians who use the technology. Recently, this musical weltschung has been expressed most emphatically by Mexico's Nortec Collective, to which Radio Zumbido could be considered a long-lost Central American cousin.
