On today’s very special episode of Songmess we are joined by Jorge Chalino and Arturo Uriza, two dynamic musicians from the city of Cholula. Together they are Cholula Dans Division, an explorative band playing with obscure vinyl samples and synth experimentation to create wild, danceable soundscapes. Uriza co-owns and manages Rompe Records, a stylish store in downtown Cholula, fully equipped with a bar and space for small indie shows and DJ sets that go off every weekend. On the flip side, Chalino runs a home studio where he crafts magical sounds for several bands and artists in town, including personal projects like Montecarlo 88, The Phoenix Flowers and Planetas Muertos. Our conversation today is touching on everything from their creative dynamic, to Cholula and Puebla’s love of Sonidero culture and their rebuking of social media and streaming platforms. Find all their music, including that for their alternate projects, for purchase on Bandcamp! Featured Artists: Cholula Dans Division, KLF, The Phoenix Flowers, Montecarlo 88, John Maus and The Orb.
