ÑAKA ÑAKA: “VUH”
In the middle of international turmoil and political dissent comes a new end of the world dance composition courtesy of Mexico’s Naka Naka. “Vuh” is from an EP titled EP’Ñ’ and according to the musician himself the EP “alludes to the initials of the newly ‘elected’ (imposed) president of Mexico, and was recorded amidst the chaotic election process.” Nearly ten minutes of pounding feet moving beats and mournful synths, we can hear and feel the composer’s angst. “VUH” could be (and is) an electronic music score to a montage of corruption, violence, and uncertainty in the streets & deceit in the upper echelon’s of power. Madness, sheer vulgar throbbing, madness on a dance floor littered with bodies and decimated dreams. We dig the music as much as we wish the times in which it was created didn’t exist. Epic. That’s a word for dance music like this. A fast forwarding buzz with an irresistible beat, “VUH” manages a rare emotional and timely high water mark for international club grooves. Music is the language of the world.
