Osvaldo’s Rebellion! is the new single from Mestizo Beat produced by Aquiles and Agustin Magaña. The two brothers shared love for western films and the masterly compositions of Italian composer Ennio Morricone, inspired them to take their tight funky sound and use elements from classic films such as, Sergio Leone’s “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly” and Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained”, to create a cinematic groove driven composition. This thumping instrumental pays homage to many classic masterpieces in music from Morricone’s iconic spaghetti western compositions to the theme song from the action thriller “Deep Cover” produced by Los Angeles’ own Dr. Dre. The band incorporates styles of funk, afro-cuban, ethio-jazz and hip-hop to deliver the sound of a dramatic tale of revolution. The songs title is in honor of the guerilla soldiers who fought in the civil war in El Salvador from 1979-1992. The artwork for the single was done by the talented Bay Area artist Ozi, the eldest brother to Aquiles and Agustin. Osvaldo’s Rebellion is a thrilling example of what to expect from the groups upcoming album “Canoga Madness’’ set to release in August 2020 through California Soul Music, a local recording label in Los Angeles, CA.
Recorded at The Roadhouse in Topanga, CA
