Pacha Massive is New York CityÂ in a nutshellâ€”where every street corner is a meeting of cultures, stories, and sounds. Weâ€™re excited to announce the release of their stunning new album, â€˜Where We Come Fromâ€™ on July 31.
Pacha Massive was founded byÂ Nova. Those beautiful vocals you hear interwoven throughout many of the songs is Patricia Lynn. Upon the release of Pacha’s previous album, â€˜If You Want It,â€™ TheÂ New York PostÂ summed up the band’s uniqueness perfectly: â€œIf fusion is the future of music, thenÂ Nova, founder of Pacha Massive, is ahead of the game with his bilingual fusion of electronica and Latin rhythms.â€
Pacha Massive has been hailed since their beginnings for their seamless use of bilingualism which, in turn, has lead them to connect with audiences across the country and the world. Pacha Massive has been praised by everyone from Billboard to MTV to KUT to KEXP, and has appeared on numerous tv shows and the popular FIFA video games.
Along with their fluid interweaving of the English and Spanish languages, Pacha Massive has been praised for their unique fusion of electronic beats with traditional Caribbean rhythms (influenced by Novaâ€™s upbringing in the Domincan Republic). â€˜Where We Come Fromâ€™ maintains many of Pacha Massiveâ€™s emblematic qualities, while offering a distinct maturation of the sound. The album was influenced by a collection of personal experiences and interesting characters that Nova crossed paths with over the last couple of years. It was recorded mainly in NYC, with additional recording in Houston and the Dominican Republic. The album features stellar collaborations fromÂ Los Rakas, Sophy Encanto (Elastic Bond),Â andÂ Natalia Clavier.
As Paty says, â€œTo finally release the new Pacha Massive album is a relief and a thrill,â€ and we hope itâ€™ll be that for all of you. Take a listen!
