Rossell – Momento

I recently stumbled on some new work by Eduardo Rossell, named “one of Mexico’s most respected electronic music producers” which, after a little research, I couldn’t agree with more. Eduardo has been DJing and producing for almost a decade now and is well recognized in the country’s EDM culture for his music and outlook. Having grown up in Mexico City, Eduardo has always seemed to stay extremely close to his roots despite traveling abroad to share stages with well-known artists Tiesto, Groove Armada, and James Zabiela.

Eduardo has been producing music under the aliases Rossell and Cromo7, which both currently have equal representation on radio stations, small gigs, and festivals within Mexico. Cromo7 has been his side project for the past 3 years, releasing mainly tech and deep house. Rossell is his primary outfit for which he’s carried since his debut and contributes anything from disco to dubstep. Although jumping around genres sounds a bit like a mind of uncertainty, he’s definitely keyed into bringing out the values of each track with his experimentation of styles and musical experience from his hometown.

What caught my attention the most was his release of a compilation of edits titled Momento where I believe he flawlessly represented his roots. Momento is a 4-track record that emphasizes ideal Mexican features within modern disco by including energetic Spanish-spoken samples, progressive rhythm, and some instances where I could easily see a Mexican street band jump in and contribute to the sporadic percussion.

Along with his contribution toward the music culture with his own work, he has also been involved from the other side of the table as co-owner of Phonia Records where they “concentrates on forward thinking music; supporting 100% Mexican producers”.

Take a moment to stream Eduardo’s recent work from Momento here and then head on over to Soundcloud for a full genre-packed listing of his discography.
