Gabriel Garzón-Montano – Bombo Fabrika [Video]

Posted on June 30, 2017

Here goes the official video to Gabriel Garzón-Montano's "Bombo Fabrika". Taken from his "Jardín" album, available everywhere now.

This video was filmed in San Basilio de Palenque, Colombia, a small town in the northern part of Colombia.

“First I’d like to thank our friend Guillermo Camacho for taking us to Palenque and introducing us to our new friends from the band Kombilesa Mi. Palenque is a magical place - people blasting music and playing drums and singing everywhere - expressing more joy than I’ve seen or felt in my whole life. Bombo Fabrika is about the place I go to when I write music. The music is not mine, it flows through me from a source much older and wiser than my body. Palenque is famous for originating some styles of Cumbia music which I’ve been greatly influenced by. Filming this video in such an energetically potent musical birthplace was an incredible and humbling experience. Creating a bridge between Colombians living in NYC and Colombians living in Palenque was beautiful.” - Gabriel Garzón-Montano

“I went to elementary school with a guy named Guillermo Camacho in Bogotá. I left Colombia at the age of 10 and lost touch with Guillermo until I discovered his work 15 years later. He had become an amazing photographer and social activist working on many powerful and meaningful projects in Colombia. I fell in love with his photographs of San Basilio de Palenque, a small town in the northern part of Colombia known for its musical identity and strong African heritage. Gabriel and I had been discussing the possibility of doing a project in Colombia since we are both from there. We reached out to Guillermo to see if he would be interested in helping us and he agreed.

Guillermo's friends in Palenque showed unbelievable generosity and willingness to get involved in the process of making this video. They helped us shoot, introduced us to everyone, appeared in the video, helped us rally motorcycles, horses, musicians, etc.

Palenque and it’s people are magical. We hope the video contains some of that magic. The joyful spirit of the people, the warmth in their demeanor, the constant stream of music playing in every corner of the town, the pride with which they display their African roots, the gorgeous nature surrounding the town, the unbelievable array of color and their impeccable style...are just some of of the things that melt together to form a place unlike any other.” - Santiago Carrasquilla

T-shirts inspired by Gabriel's time in Palenque shooting the "Bombo Fabrika" music video are available now in his web store. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to music programs in Palenque.

Rhythm Roulette w/ Rahki [Video]

Posted on June 30, 2017

With Grammy Awards already under his belt already, Rahki is one of Top Dawg Entertainment's most trusted producers. The Minneapolis-born producer was the man behind "i," one of K-Dot's biggest singles, for which he sampled a '70s Isley Brother's track, "That Lady." Besides making beats for other members of TDE such as Ab-Soul, Rahki has produced for Eminem, 50 Cent, Travis $cott and more. Rahki's ear for samples is so good, MASS APPEAL had to put him to the test in our latest episode of Rhythm Roulette. We met up with Rahki at Ameoba Music in L.A. where he tied on the blindfold and picked three records from the shop's clearance section. His picks were random as hell, including a chorus recording, orchestral music, and one album whose cover gave him "Illuminati type of vibes." It seems those left-field selections posed just a small challenge for the talented beat-maker. What he came out with in the end is a banger. Check out Rahki at work in our latest Rhythm Roulette video above.
