N.A.A.F.I's Paul Marmota Debuts "Aire"

It was inspired by Mexico City’s crisp winter nights.

January 25, 2016

Last week, we introduced you to Paul Marmota, the Chilean producer who runs around with innovative electronic collective N.A.A.F.I. In addition to stirring shit up within Mexico City's underground party scene, N.A.A.F.I also facilitates proper releases, the latest being a three-song single from Marmota himself. Today we're premiering "Aire," a seasick dance track built on stuttering kick drums and a crop of delirious effects: sirens, dogs, security-breach synths.

"'Aire' references the crisp winter nights of Mexico City—sirens and metallic sounds," Marmota told FADER over email. "'Cora' its more mystical, a deconstruction of various reggaeton elements. And 'Registro' is a cinematic persecution." The latter appears on the soundtrack for Underbelly, a documentary about a crew of infamous British street artists who work in London's Tube tunnels. The single drops February 12th, but you can pre-order it now.
