Mexican Institute Of Sound Mejico Maxico on LP
Nacional Records is pleased to announce that the label will be issuing Mexican Institute of Sound's (M.I.S.) four critically acclaimed albums Mejico Maxico (2006), Pinata (2007), Soy Sauce (2009) and Politico (2012) on vinyl.
Camilo Lara, known as the Mexican Institute of Sound on stage, never set out with the intention of taking his personal musical career seriously. At first, Lara was simply creating holiday mixes for friends, but then his friends convinced him that he should take his songs into the studio. At the beginning of MIS, Lara was working days as the president of a major record label while concocting his debut album at night.
Originally released in 2006, the impressive genre bending collection Mejico Maxico (Magic Mexico) was the result of those initial sessions. Mixing vintage Mexican pop and dance music with the modern sounds of electronica and hip-hop, the assured 15-song audio-collage immediately propelled Lara to the upper echelon of the international electronica scene and drew flattering comparisons to genre crossovers like LCD Soundsystem among others.
“Mr. Lara has carved out a comfortable and expanding niche for himself on the international music scene...His quirky but infectious blend of traditional Mexican folk styles with electronica and hip-hop is increasingly surfacing not just on dance floors, but also on television and film soundtracks and in commercials and video games.” - New York Times
