Metis (Eco Lopez & Ian Lampel) Berlin Music Week 2012 Preview- 22 September, 2012
Metis are one of the few groups we’ve heard mixing hip-hop beats, jazz instrumentation and candombe drumming. Furthermore, they do this in such a way that we rated their debut EP Sessions Vol.I / Antropofagia as one of the best releases of 2011. Recently the group, frm Uruguay, performed in Berlin, and this was a little preview they put together, featuring Eco Lopez on vocals. We really can’t wait for the album!
Also, read our chat with Metis main man Ian Lampel as we discuss the group’s influences as well as the music scene in Montevideo, Uruguay.
