About

“Música demente para que baile la gente” (“crazy music to make people dance”) was the phrase used to describe the eclectic, musical fusion style energy of the parties organised by DJ Kuto Selektah Quilla on the underground scene in Buenos Aires (2007-2009)

These parties were created to showcase a new style of experimentation from this underground scene – fusing popular and traditional Latin American music with contemporary western music. This musical fusion of Latin American styles (cumbia, afroperuvian, afrocolombian, salsa, chicha and huayno) and western styles (dance hall, ska, reggae, dub and drum and bass) is the trademark sound of DJ Kuto Selektah Quilla.

This previously unheard of blend of rhythms is what inspired Kuto Selektah Quilla to start to produce his own music. While still very present on the Buenos Aires scene, Kuto travelled extensively throughout South America during these years – bringing with him his original fusion and flavour of sounds, with shows in Argentina, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador and Colombia.
In 2011, he launched his first production "La Revolucion del Olluco Beat" in which he captures the fusion of the rhythms previously mentioned, with a militant message about bringing union to Latin America.

In 2012 Kuto Selektah Quilla showcased his first European tour visiting France, Belgium, Sweden and Germany. During this tour he launched his second EP “Kontra Toda Autoridad” - a work of extremely rhythmic mashups of reggae and cumbia, while still maintaining the combative line of his earlier work. This EP received good criticism from the global bass scene.

“ Pichikateando” Kuto's third EP was released in February, 2013, at the end of his South American tour. This work is more focused on Amazonian and indigenous sounds – reflecting the struggles and problems they are facing.

With an Afroperuvian mother, and a father with indigenous roots from Cusco, Kuto has a diverse ancestry. This ancestral cultural blend, as well as his diverse social network, has given him the inspiration to create music and to make people dance. From his culture there is a saying that goes: “To dance is to celebrate life, and dancing gives more life to life”.
