Campo Rules!

While listening to Campo’s music one feels immersed in a parallel universe where pop music evolved in a different way. In this dimension indie rock met up with Latin music from the 50’s, marginalized popular genres such as cumbia villera suffered a transformation and became sophisticated and cool, and dance floor music turned introspective and poetic while tango married alternative pop.
In addition, the project incluyes South American songwriters who perform cumbias in English, Sweden jazz singers who like marcha tropical and songs that evoke Depeche Mode and Lecuona Cuban Boys at the same time.
Such feelings in which time and space coordinates are out of place might be confused with retro sensitivity. Not only Campo does not return to the past, but with its music it builds up one that never existed.
In 1987, dark details of music from the 80’s are mixed with bolero. In Cumbio it seems cumbia villera is being performed by a Latin American Big Band from the 50’s and that a British rock singer of today time-travelled to sing on the track. In In a Dark Room, current alt-pop pays a visit to a tango ballroom from the past.
To Uruguayan producer Juan Campodonico -creator of the project alongside a group of composers and performers from different genres and places Worldwide-, it’s all about “taking elements and styles out of context to set them into a new space and appreciate beauty from another point of view”.
In other words, music doesn’t need definitions. Fashions may pass but beauty remains. Campo’s music is the evidence of this.

One of the Best Albums of 2012

This is certainly one of the best Latin-Alt albums of 2012, though honestly it's probably better just labeled as one of the best records of the year, period. Campo's solo debut is so much better than all of the other crap that's been labeled electro-cumbia over the years. Great music to chill out to …all of the songs sound fresh and quite original. "Cumbion" is my favorite track - kind of reminds of MGMT if they got lost in Colombia and got work as local cumbia musicians.

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Campo is essentially a creative collective led by Juan Campodónico, a musician, producer, and composer from Uruguay whose musical vision blends cumbia, hip-hop, alternative rock, and techno into a potent and commercial international fusion. Born in Montevideo, Uruguay in 1971, Campodónico spent a good part of his childhood in Mexico in exile with his family after the 1973 coup in his home country, and when general elections were finally held in 1984, he returned home to Montevideo and immersed himself...
