— Helado Negro — SC: soundcloud.com/heladonegro
The son of Ecuadorean immigrants, Helado Negro was born in South Florida in 1980. His childhood was suffused with tropical heat, humidity, hurricanes, all refracted with the rich sounds and colors of the various Latin American cultures of southern Florida.
«Existentially occupying the ether between Ecuadorian and American identity, Lange solidifies his ethnic pride and his experimental legacy on Private Energy, tinkering with South American folk and electro-pop palettes.»
— ROLLING STONE «ARTIST YOU NEED TO KNOW»
"'Private Energy,' the fascinating new album from Helado Negro… nobody sounds like him, in any genre." — NPR «FIRST LISTEN»
«Political gestures and revolutionary aspects in calming drum lines, soft clouds of synths… At times, it almost feels like he’s casting a spell on you.»- PITCHFORK «BEST NEW MUSIC»
