- El Barrio
This song evokes the flavor and the heat of the streets of Medellín - Colombia. This “salsa steppa” - As the genre of the song calls Ruido Selecto - is the union between the neighborhood salsa brava and the more electronic and danceable side of dub: the steppa.
Juan Esteban Herrera, project leader and producer of the single, comments on the concept behind this release:
“El Barrio recalls the classic spirit of the Medellín salsa of the 70s and 80s, corner salsa and steep streets, verbena and colors. In this song, the trumpet, the beats and a simple chorus generate a delicious and well applied formula that easily captures the listener and the dancer. "
To achieve a clear salsa sound, the single has the collaboration of the talented Yoni Pérez on the trumpet, who is known for his collaborations with multiple groups in the city of Medellín.
Ruido Selecto is an electronic music project that adopts Jamaican and tropical rhythms as raw material for its sound, in essence, black music is a key part of the sound of the project and for this reason its musical style incites to dance. The project is created by Juan Esteban Herrera, guitarist, and music producer from Medellín - Colombia.
