Kinky
Freedom and reinvention for the XXI century.
"A Donde Van Los Muertos?" Feat. Carla Morrison, their first single.
Debuted # 1 on iTunes within hours of its release.
*The album digital pre-sale was immediately in the Top 10 on iTunes.
Kinky comes to life at the right time. The band has giving new meaning to
Mexican rock, opening its possibilities toward a more cosmopolitan sound.
Kinky’s breakthrough in the music scene led the beginning of a new era, not only
for Mexico, but also for the rest of Latin America.
It was by no coincidence that Kinky inaugurated the birth of a new century with its
eponymous album (Kinky, 2001), a collection of songs full of vigor and a mixture
of rhythms that was a surprise to the local scene. These elements remain as an
essential characteristic, and have led Gil Cerezo, Carlos Chairez, Omar
Gongora, Cesar Pliego and Ulises Lozano to create one of the more remarkable
careers in Mexico and worldwide.
With ingenious vision, Kinky recorded a renewed version featuring a sound mix
with visual references that blend into their second album (Atlas, 2003), drawing
along their career a map of rich and varied songs, experiences, nominations and
awards.
With international tours, the path traced by Kinky extends to horizons ranging
from video games to movies, from where they consolidated their third album
(Reina, 2003) and subsequently (Barracuda, 2008); Kinky has been able to
navigate deep waters until their album (Sueño de la Máquina 2011).
If Kinky’s debut album marked the beginning of a new era, the future is always
born with new ideas. The next leap was another dimension, in this case: MTV
Unplugged.
In its 2014 version, a kaleidoscopic is rediscovered on each track. The explosive
band performances make it one of the best live acts; intoxicating and addictive as
the adrenaline that emanate from a Kinky live show; to this add the ability to
execute and the creativity to provide an acoustic album.
The concert opens with a seductive version of one of the bands most emblematic
songs, "Soun Tha Mi Primer Amor" conquering the audience, and without any
notice they are in the eye of the "Huracán" vibrant sounds. Reinvention is such,
that at times it gives the impression of being not only in front of new versions, but
entirely new songs.
The peculiar combination of electronic and rock made Kinky a favorite band to
thousands of people, but also their shrewd transcription and reinterpretation of
Latin and Mexican folklore, particularly the rhythms created and deeply rooted in
northern Mexico. Their arc is characterized by the transgression of boundaries
and prejudices that are proof in this MTV Unplugged, which includes the norteño
classic from Ramon Ayala "Para Poder Llegar A Ti", in which the accordion looks
and emphasizes the diversity of sounds that fit the band, and where the repetition
of the chorus serves as a sampler.
Hypnotized by sequences in "Sin Palabras," Ulises Lozano surrounds us with
inventive keyboards, the perfect opening to display the voice of Carla Morrison
on "A Donde Van Los Muertos?" The surprises increase with each track. The
guitar of Carlos Chairez lends delicious harmonies, such as the intro that lead us
to a renewed and exciting version of "Yo Soy Lo Peor". There are winds of halo,
purely norteño, juxtaposed with the funk rhythm of "Negro Día" and the
participation of La Mala Rodriguez.
"Una Línea De luz" opens the way for the completion of this unforgettable
journey, a moment of splendid strings, not only by the cascade of violins but also
by the artful arrangement of guitar.
"Ilegal", poised to become a new classic of the band, and "Para Que Regreses,”
remind us why the voice of Gil Cerezo has become one of the most recognized
and appreciated in Latin music. "Hasta Quemarnos" lives up to its name with a
fiery version. The audience catches their breath in “Vuelve” and then uses all the
enthusiasm and energy that remains since “Bien Pedo, Bien Loco” is the closing
track featuring Los Recoditos.
Kinky’s MTV Unplugged is not just an acoustic album; it’s a journey through the
musical work that the group has created over years. A deconstruction of all its
elements generating unexpected versions, achieved thanks to crafty ingenuity of
a band that enjoys complete freedom.
