Wolf is an electronic music producer who splits his time between Mexico City and Montreal; he also runs a record label called Infinite Machine. Witnessing is a Montreal-based producer who makes distorted dancefloor tracks. The two friends come together on "Acapulco," a burnt-edged, big-room tune that threads a rhythm evoking their shared Latin American roots through punchy bass, sharp kicks, and choral flourishes. To complete this release on Berlin label WDIS, the duo enlisted Stockholm producer Kablam for a pleasingly serrated remix; both that and the original are streaming below.
"'Acapulco' is the coalescence of a rekindled friendship," Wolf & Witnessing told The FADER. "It constitutes a critical discourse with our Latin heritage and the importance of incorporating this aspect of our identities into the symbiotic evolution of our musical structures." WDIS will release Wolf & Witnessing's "Acapulco" single and Kablam remix on March 4. Listen close.
