The AIRDROP legacy grows and grows, with one tight 'n' crisp single release after the next, dropping into the veins of the musically conscious and electronically versed. Airy bubbles that make your head spin included!
After showcasing the amazingly active scene in the United States, paying tribute to the brimming hubs of the US underground which are bringing forward more exciting artists then ever before right now, AIRDROP refocuses on its creative birth place: Argentina, the up-and-coming South American country where label head honcho Paulo Reachi started hunting down the first signings. Getting Andres Zacco on board shows that the label is steering towards an absolute high point!

The Pergamino-born Argentine producer is not an unknown to the scene. His highly descriptive, funkily elusive, reduced yet very driving house sounds that are finely layered and always utterly tasteful in their composition have surfaced on labels as varied and renowned as Stock5, BPitch, Alphahouse, Esperanza and Traut Muzik. Andres also releases on his own imprint, Greener, which features works by Lineas de Nazca, Kai-Maan, Franco Cinelli and soon Jacek Sienkiewicz to name a few involved. As part of an exciting new wave of Argentinean vanguard sound producers, he, alone and together with studio partner Lucas Mari, manages to stun a receptive audience not only with the array of productions and remixes he has been releasing since 2006 but also with his gripping DJ sets. 

His debut on AIRDROP is a well-paced two-tracker which stuns with its versatility and tasteful arrangements. The groove of the opener, the funnily named 'Seated Hopping' grips you in the underbelly and shuffles you upside down with its deep, dubby flavor that will have you hopping on your seats in no time, the cherry on the icing being the dark, down-pitched vocals that haunt you on the rise. The "Untitled" track is a state of mind definitely not unknown to those in the know, and this time is virtually impossible to keep seated. Flurry filtered vocals warp in and out while the pitchy groove gains momentum, intensifying the mobilizing effects of the track immensely as you rise and shine to the infectious, stripped down, channeled disco groove. Zacco at his finest will have you gagging for more. Hold on tight!
