Mancha De Platano
Split release with the Beta Bodega Coalition. "Nothing is quite so satisfying as music driven by a clear concept. Although we ultimately make music for music's sake, music (for the sake of a cause) is elevated that much more as we play on its astounding ability to communicate an idea. With the release of Mancha de Platano, this collective of musical talent has seized the opportunity of bringing to light the issues that ail the community of Vieques, Puerto Rico. In light of recent misfortunes imposed upon the United States, many worthy causes are understandably relegated to the shadows of the public's mind (eye). Mancha de Platano brings the issues of Vieques back to the forefront, reminding us not to lose sight of the 'American ideal' justice for all. The producers of this record rightfully campaign for peace in Vieques, as it is an issue that hits close to home for them. The Beta Bodega Coalition, based out of Miami, has here teamed up with the rising musical chapter from Puerto Rico, Etihad Records. Artists featured include: Spike, Servo, Ectomorph, Jake Mandell, Otto Von Shirach aka El Santo, ZooplANK, Macroporno, Kukuye, and Algorithm present Void. Limited to 1000."
