During my time in Buenos Aires, I get to know talented DJs and producers CHOCA and DJ ASHLEY. They played at almost every interesting underground party. I loved their unexpected chaotic energy selection. Every set, they played was different. Now, they have teamed up for the first time to create a new EP called K.S.U.R (KÍMIKA SONORA UTÓPICA REVOLUCIONARIA). The record will be released via a newly formed label by Asociacion Futurista Anti Binaria (A.F.A.B.) (Instagram).

For the past couple of years, djAshley and CHOCA have been staples of the Buenos Aires underground club scene. Their DJing can usually be described as loud and chaotic; an intentionally improper, or „messy“ type of sound. What mostly characterizes them though, is their unpredictability and boldness in their music selection and mixing skills.

In this four-track EP – composed and produced in a couple of intimate hangouts – they seem to venture deep into sonic subtleties like those found in the more textured and trippy styles of bass music, while also experimenting with more personal and unexpected types of rhythms such as footwork and riddim → all while still maintaining that punk spirit and playfulness that has made them stand out over their careers.
