Mexican Institute Of Sound Soy Sauce 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.
After establishing himself as a major electronica artist with his first two albums Mejico Maxico (2006) and Pinata (2007), MIS returned with Soy Sauce in 2009, his spirited third collection of genre-hopping sound-collages which NPR noted "pushes eclecticism to a new level by mixing mariachi with hip-hop, rock and electronica, while some songs feel reminiscent of '80s British New Wave." In addition to special guests like Ad-Rock (Beastie Boys), Mexican pop star Paty Cantu, Joselo Rangel (Café Tacuba), and Brazilian singer Pat C, the multi-layered 14-song set includes a Spanish cover of the Verve's "Bittersweet Symphony."
“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
