Mexican Institute Of Sound Pinata 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.
2006's Mejico Maxico was the result of those initial sessions, a promising first endeavor which saw Lara inventively mixing vintage Mexican pop and dance music with the modern sounds of electronica and hip-hop to critical acclaim. A year later MIS upped the ante with his colorful sophomore album Pinata, a bigger and richer 13-song collection, which the BBC described as, "Imagine Gomez, Manu Chao and The Avalanches fused into one enormous sound and you are almost there." Guests on Pinata include members of Tom Tom Club, Cornelius, and Babasonicos.
“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
