The sound identity of Artificio, a label from Medellín, Colombia, is not pigeonholed and is imagined outside of paradigms. For its first compilation, the label brings together artists from different latitudes who share the discipline of rhythms faithful to experimentation. Ficciones includes twelve songs that play between ambient, noise, electro, breakbeat, drum’n’bass and techno, and push the lines that help us in some way to define the breadth of electronic music. Ross, Amantra, Miguel Isaza, Erre Ye, Noise Casino, Arcane Prospect, Miguel Isaza, Soft Collision, SLRCT, Rainmaker, AA, Vikhaa, Ren, and M. Blair all feature a new narrative that blends into the diverse and exciting landscape that is the sonic universe of Artificio.
Ficciones is inspired by a storybook written by Jorge Luis Borges. It seeks to represent the diversity of Latin American sounds to bring the immensity of the south as close as possible to the whole world. We decided to appropriate the s of “south” written with TWK Everett to recreate the Mughal typeface from the album logo as if it was made in ASCII language.
