Ñaka Ñaka – Juan Pestanas

21.06.13

Ñaka Ñaka hails from Mexico City but is based in New York, and ‘Juan Pestanas’ is the name of his most recent tape, put out through the ever-reliable Opal Tapes earlier this month. The audio is gritty, the rhythms are machine-made and the bass low, but despite those descriptors this isn’t the sort of guttural, primitive drone techno that’s everywhere right now – there’s something romantic about Ñaka Ñaka’s melodies.
