Live band Latin hip hop with soulful and timely lyricism – and steeped in an inventive blend of cumbia, Tejano funk and the all around diverse touch of producer Adrian Quesada! Adrian brings the melting pot of Latin, funk and soul eclecticism he's renowned for with the groups Brownout
, Grupo Fantasma, Black Pumas and various production gigs, but Mexstep is such a culturally forceful project on the lyrical side, thanks largely to vocalist Marco Cervantes chronicling the indigenous pride and the urgent politics of the Mexican & US border, there's a compelling edge here that puts it in a new light. Even when it's built around just some beats, strings, bass and keys, it's got a stylistically expansive feel. Titles include "With Us", "Clear", "Dios Mio", "Tejano Summer", "Mal De Ojo", "Crooked", "Labeled Enemy", "Mixed Up" and "Steel".
