Santa Muerte
Santa Muerte
Underground dancefloor culture has proven itself a key platform to spearhead sounds, aesthetics, and ideology in musical realms. More than that, it creates a community that provides spaces for real-time collective knowledge that explores the forefront of avant-garde sounds.

This philosophy behind dance music culture comes full circle in the case of Santa Muerte.

Hailing from Houston, Texas, this power duo Sines and Panchitron, have a Soundcloud account offering up a pallet of infectious rhythms grown out of guttural darkness that oscillates between sensual perreo and a frenetic mix of hyperactive grime vibes. Highlighting the duo’s dark aura is the name of the act, Santa Muerte; Mexico’s cult of Holy Death, a reference to the worship of an underground goddess of death and the dead.

From trap and hip-hop to dembow, Sines and Panchitron embrace an inclusive encounter of music cultures. Encompassing various factors ranging from visual aesthetics to the sound itself, Santa Muerte is more than music; it’s a sole expression of the everyday mosaic of subcultures in the United States.

Riobamba is an Ecuadorian-Lithuanian DJ, event-maker, and writer based in Brooklyn.

Riobamba has recently returned to the States after spending a year in Bogotá, Colombia, where she immersed herself in club culture, and research funded by the Fulbright-mtvU program. Her research, focusing on urban music culture, investigated instances of new levels of artistic agency and self-representation for musicians powered by low-barrier, democratized access to digital music production tools and distribution networks.

Now back in the United States, she's the Music Editor at alt-Latino arts & culture platform Remezcla, and newly a member of the Dutty Artz crew.

Riobamba also continues as resident at Boston's transnational bass night Picó Picante, which she co-founded in 2011 under the alias Pajaritos with DJ partner Ernesto Morales. The monthly party, now organized between Oxycontinental, Ultratumba, Zo.E.Ling and Riobamba, has become a consistent platform and inclusive community for forward-thinking, globally-minded dance music artists. Picó has been the home to the first Boston appearance of artists like Toy Selectah, Los Rakas, Los Macuanos, and Explosión Negra.

Drawing inspiration from her hybrid diaspora roots, worldwide digital dialogue, and bodega soundtracks, she's recently shared the stage with innovators The Knife, Los Macuanos, Jubilee, Bomba Estéreo, Rich Medina, Bobbito Garcia, and la MiniTK del Miedo at spaces in the US, Colombia, and Mexico. Now expanding her craft to include original sound pieces, she most recently released her "Grito" and "Altiplano Urbano" concept mixtapes, which premiered on Sounds and Colours.
