Verraco descends from the mountains. Born in Medellín, Colombia, with merely three releases, he has already stated that he channels through electro, ambient, braindance and techno, the rough recent history of his country and its cultural challenges. His journey began in the fertile Latin scene, quickly gaining a spot amongst the most risky and promising raising talents of the region.
Verraco is the head of Insurgentes, a label that has become a key platform for latinos finest sonic hustlers. The platform operates with one goal in mind: reduce gaps between the latin electronic music scene and the rest of the world, building bridges and making more visible the talent of the region. With Insurgentes, Verraco has found it’s way to surface and resonate through some of the most renowned critics in electronic music: XLR8R called Don’t Kill ‘em All a variation of tripped-out alien-like electro, brutal techno and acid-drenched ambience, RA’s Matt Unicomb defined the his sound of Medellín as chaotic techno with plenty of feeling, and Pitchfork’s maestro, Philip Sherburne, has had flattering words for the label.
