On his weekly show, Elevation Through Sound, Alejandro Cohen plays the obscure gems your ears have always craved but never come across. "Elevation through Sound" provides lucky listeners with a journey through the full sound spectrum.

Visionary Uruguayan musician Juan Campodonico, creator of projects like Bajofondo and Campo and producer of a long list of artists that marked new Latin American music, presents his new live set solo format. Juan brought his set blending original music com-posed and produced for his different music projects remixed for a unique performance combining software, synthesizers, vocals and guitar. His set is an innovative work in progress. In the rhythms, textures and melodies sounding in his live set you can feel the Afro in-fluence of the Uruguayan candombe drums, tango (Buenos Aires and Montevideo's chamber music) and cumbia in its most austral and rough version. At the same time the set is surrounded by traces of minimal techno and trap.
