Self Evident is one third of the production/DJ collective WEPA! from Vancouver. The trio, completed by Gameboy and Will Eede, have been pushing the Latin folklore/digitalism crossover, moulding folkore samples and rhythms with programmed beats and bass, as captivated by Eede’s trippy-Andino mix series.
On Oro Corazón, released through future-latin label Sub Klub, Self Evident shows more of a dancefloor leaning than his colleagues. The EP revolves around the dem-bow beat, twisting it into different variations and melting wider influences into the mix. Opener “Bendecir” is a collage of vocal snippets, synth bleeps and the odd flute with a healthy bass line sticking all the parts together. Title track “Oro Corazon” is the standout track on the EP if only for the breakdown between the vocal line and the pizzicato strings. The rest of the EP takes in Dubstep/global bass (Silver VIP), disrupted reggaeton (Reggaetone Style) and a block of sub bass.
