"Doubtless you already know Argenis Brito, whether you're aware of it or not. This versatile Venezuelan musician and singer has blazed an indelible path across the Americas and Europe for over 20 years, first in the Latin American rock scene and, since the mid-'90s, as a collaborator and comrade-in-arms of many of the artists that have given contemporary electronic dance music a Latin twist. Moving from Caracas to New York to Santiago de Chile to Berlin, and having toured the world multiple times, Brito brings a uniquely rootless sensibility to his unconventional brand of house music.Since the turn of the decade, Brito has been the featured vocalist and touring bandleader for Uwe Schmidt's Señor Coconut project. Alongside Pier Bucci he has recorded two albums and several singles as Mambotur, and with Bucci and Luciano, he co-produced four tracks for Monne Automne's 2003 album. Before all of this there was his groundbreaking work alongside Chilean stadium rocker Jorge Gonzalez in the experimental electronic pop project Gonzalo Martinez, which also featured contributions from Atom Heart, Dandy Jack and Tobias Freund. And most recently, Brito has pursued a dirtier house sensibility, as a member of The Basstards, Krak Street Boyz and Argenix vs. Samim. Micro Mundo, Brito's first appearance on Cadenza, finds him finessing and refining his sound, honing it down to a carefully restrained groove that occasionally erupts into madness, snapping and hissing like a live wire.'Espejismo' sets the tone with a no-nonsense stomp, a hypnotic bassline snaking through it, and eerie flashes of digital noise, aural equivalents of the mirage of the title. 'Amplified' takes those elements and ratchets them up a notch, machine voices bubbling up from the murk and fizzy micro-rhythms zooming across the stereo field. It's not an entirely new sound for Cadenza; in the precision-tooled sound design and the propulsive groove, you'll hear echoes of Luciano, Digitaline, Andomat 3000 & Jan."
