Algodón Egipcio - Los Asuntos Pendientes (La Prueba B) (Teen Daze Remix)

Algodón Egipcio, the nighttiming name of Caracas, Venzuela’s Cheky Bertho, recently released a collection of remixes from his debut album La Lucha Constante. That album was one of my favorites from 2011 so I was pretty excited to see a host of new remixes coming my way. These new renditions come by way of remixers all across Europe and the Americas. The Caracas-Canada connection, Teen Daze’s take on the track “Los Asuntos Pendientes (La Prueba B),” adds a nice dancy side to the original. Have a listen below.

Algodón Egipcio - El Mejor Lugar

Algodón Egipcio (aka Ezequiel ”Cheky” Bertho— one half of Venezuelan duo Jóvenes y Sexys) released his debut album La Lucha Constante last year on Lefse. After a year of touring around Venezuela, Portugal and Spain (he’s trying to get a US visa), Cheky’s back with a new single off a limited run split 7” with Spanish band El Faro from the Canary Islands, it’s out now on Club Social. Stream Algodón Egipcio’s pair of dreamy jams off the single below.

[Video] Algodón Egipcio - El Día Previo

Caracas, Venezuela’s Algodón Egipcio released his debut album La Lucha Constante back in March on Lefse and now one of my favorite tracks of the release, El Día Previo, has a set of visuals to accompany it. Directed by Pablo Ortiz, the video is a sort of multilingual karaoke prompt scrolling over stunning nature scenes— check ittt

Algodón Egipcio - El Día Previo

Ezequiel “Cheky” Bertho is a Venezuelan electronic artist who’s been releasing loop-based jams under the moniker Algodón Egipcio (Egyptian Cotton) when not playing as one half of the duo Jóvenes y Sexys. Cheky’s debut solo album, La Lucha Constante, is set to drop March 22nd on Lefse Records (Houses, Dominant Legs, How To Dress Well). Recorded in a burst of creativity after a trip to São Paulo, Brazil, half of the the ten-track release was crafted in a week up in Ezequiel’s cramped Caracas bedroom. Mixing together reverby synths, guitars, syncopated beats, hazy vocals and samples, Algodón Egipcio stumbles through genres, passing through shoegaze, electronic, ambient, lounge and dream pop but never stopping to dwell on just one. Preoder La Lucha Constante, which would be a dope name for an old school rap album, over at Lefse.
