In this very special episode of Songmess we continue our Dominican series with a delicious interview with Carlos and Marlene from Estación Sub_Trópico. The duo of producers and multi-instrumentalists blend electronic genres such as house and minimal with Afro-Dominican drums and percussion that fill each song with rich organic textures. They have also become known for their visual and sound production work, as well as event management, with their production company Mediumship Music.
Our conversation covers their musical beginnings in rock and symphonic percussion, to a search that connects them with the music of their roots and that leads them to innovate within it. Today we highlight Afro-descendant traditions, pioneers of Dominican jazz and a future built with the heritage that we carry within.
