Chupaconcha – Bestia Session

July 3, 2010

Chupaconcha - Bestia SessionI love the first-time feeling of hearing a new artist: no preconceived notions, just curiosity followed by acceptance and joy. And if you’re anything like me — addicted to downloading netlabel music like some are addicted to crack cocaine —, this rush of listening to new artists happens quite often like the other day when I first heard Chupaconcha. The duo of Giuliano Gius Cobelli (trumpet) and Giorgio Fausto Menossi (drums) have created a style of music they call hypnofunk — a jazz, funk and electronic hybrid. Bestia Session (51beats), by my count, is their third release, a tight and expressive 4 track production of loopy improvisations. Below is a video of Chupaconcha with some live performance shots. Oh, and BTW, if you look hard enough of the internets, you can find Chupaconcha’s Hippie Happy Hypnofunk that they released for free last year. Enjoy.

    The concept of this blog is amazing, even though I soon got too much music to listen to…

      Thanks for the compliment. As far as I feel, there is never too much music to listen to. 😉
