Los Angeles band ANIMATO is a high-energy, electro dance machine comprised of Joey Medina (Vocals/Keys), Steve Mungarro (Bass/Programming), Jason Ywahu (Drums/Sampling Pad), Maria-Rexelle (Keys/Guitar), and Raul Martinez (Guitar/Synths). The band formed in late 2012 in the wake of the breakup of previous LA bands “Ashbury” and “The Tender Box,” who’s various members decided to join forces, as well as bring on 2 new recruits. The result of this collaboration is a new project that encompasses a myriad of influences infused with 80s Electro and Britpop bands such as Depeche Mode, Kasabian, Daft Punk, Cut Copy, Friendly Fires, etc.

“She sounds like a Latin-influenced Bjork.” – LA Record

“María Del Pilar…is one of the most important voices in the Latin alternative music scene in the United States.” – CNN Español

“She helps anchor Los Angeles’ Latin alternative music scene.” – LA Weekly

“No better artist better represents the emerging bridge between Latin music and American music than Chilean-born María Del Pilar [MDP]. She broke new ground with her former band Los Abandoned singing in Spanglish and effortlessly sliding between languages from lyric to lyric. María Del Pilar was our first insight into the emerging cross cultural music scene in LA. Now on a solo tour, MDP gives a nod to Grace Jones as her inspiration.” – Mark Sovel

Directly from the city of hope – Mexico City, Mexico – in the month of March, 2012, the six-man group EL CONJUNTO NUEVA OLA released its first musical production, an album that is sure to make history. A very unique musical collective, one that will revolutionize the recording industry. The first promotional single from their album is titled “CHIDO, CHIDO” (“Cool, cool”) a classic title in the history of tropical music, but one that here takes on a completely different vibe.
