KINKY

I can’t even begin to explain what an experience this was!!

Meeting KINKY in person!!…I was so inpatient, we (my sister and I ) didn’t know that we were actually waiting to meet and greet them right there and then…suddenly the elevator door opened…a group of guys came strolling out…I glanced at my sister with a stare, almost asking her with my eyes “Is that…is that who i think that it is…OMG”. we stood up and I honestly didn’t know what to say or do. All this time I was thinking of the things I would say once I had them in front of me! but my mind went blank!! I was in shock-mode!!

We were then escorted to the radio station’s cabin, and yes! it was KINKY alright! I didn’t know what to say or do… but their vibe was so welcoming that in no time we were hugging them, taking pictures and chatting in between radio commercials.

Then suddenly something inside me ignited, it was crazy to me how a couple of months prior to this event, I had commented to my sister ” just you watch, next time we will meet them in person”… I remembered what I said to her, and without thinking I blurred out “It is interesting how the universe brought us together here, in synchronicity”

yea yea..I thought.. “WHAT WAS THAT ALL ABOUT lol…WHAT ARE YOU THINKING???” but I really felt like expressing to them the fact that they are something important to us. That the moment was just out of this world, I”ll never forget it!! 🙂

This was the first song i heard:

Who is KINKY? I first heard of Kinky when a sample was played in a Mexican telenovela Clase 406. I loved their funk but yet rock style that had an electro-pop fusion, fresh at that time. I found out later that they are from Monterrey, Mexico. So my admiration for them grew knowing that they were pioneers of this new eclectic sound, crossing borders with their music which was getting them exposure here in the United States.

However, it wasn’t till a close friend of mine took me to a show, with out knowing who was playing. That show was key to me for rediscovering KINKY. When I heard that one song from the soap opera, that’s when I realized who they were! After that show, we tried to make it to most of the shows that they played in Los Angeles. I remember checking them out at the Grand Performances and later at Club Nokia/Theater.  Their performances live are amazing!!! They bring a new sound that incorporates regional mexican sounds, with a combination of new and eccentric/fun sounds. Like this following tune from their most recent album

Now check out this tune from their most recent album Sueño De La Maquina

I’m loving this tune, can’t help repeating it again, and again. So catchy!!! What do you think??

Enjoy-
