Sole Parody, better know by her stage name Le Parody (a play on her own surname), is an Spanish musician and recording artist from Southern Spain, survivor of the decadent western culture. She is also a poet and feminism activist. She began her music career as a student in Los Angeles and was a member of various bands in Madrid.
“The Middle Eastern feel on the track is not accidental, as Sole has stated that she secluded herself for about a year on an olive grove to work on the new album, citing Moroccan music and Bollywood as major influences.”
Her unorthodox musical style has been characterized as “beautiful discomfort” and “sensory overload”.
Le Parody's stage performances are highly eclectic and energetic, a jovial chaos which rejects fusion, but instead, uses poetic lyrics and inspiring sounds drawing from diverse sources around the world.
Le Parody’s work has consistently received praise for its distinct musical style, which features African folk, Bollywood rhythms, Asian echoes, Flamenco beats and a rave attitude. Le Parody innovative music is hard to categorize in one genre. Her tunes call to mind familiar songs, but at the same time, they don't sound like any of them.
One of the best things that ever happened to MIA, Diplo or Enrique Iglesias is the release of ‘Salvaje’. The first two because now they already have another excuse to find inspiration (some would say “to copy”) far away of the fabelas bass. And Enrique because he already has another talented artist to get a free remix under an abusive deal -but a huge worldwide impact, for his new upcoming hit to conquer the most unworried audiences.
“An exercise around synth pop and Caribbean roots. A gorgeous walk from bossa nova to electronica.”

Jazz sensibility with global-bass orientated grooves, tough drums, tropical echoes and rhythms. That’s the Sotomayor brothers (Raul, who takes care of all the machines and production, and Paulina, vocals and drums), one of the most promising projects in the world of alternative dance music today, who have created an exotic, iconic and balanced album which remembers the most dazzling and intriguing Quantic, Chancha Via Circuito or Buraka Som Sistema.
“They know mixing synths with guapachoso beats is not enough to cut it– they have to really show their worth for dance floor dominance.”
During the past years, Nicolas Braschi aka SidiRum was looking for different ways to join all his influences in a gorgeous bunch of songs. Now, after those first years as professional producer and musician, an experienced SidiRum surprises us with a very mature electronic sky of tropical atmospheres and Latin vibes. We are in front of his upcoming, most successful creative decade.
Here, vocal pop songs with mainstream structures are clearing the ground to sound experiments that find exciting narrative solutions, to put you in one of the most creative music labs of Latin America, to create a remarkable intercambio (exchange) of arguments between both sides of the music ground. As you can listen in ‘180 Grados’ -which opens the album in collaboration with the Argentinian singer Dat García, SidiRum builds bridges between pop and Latin vanguards from the beginning.
Exponentially, through this attitudes exchange between the mainstream rules and the independent producer ones, we will walk, in this order, across 180 Grados, La Sin Futuro, Intercambio, Mentes Unidas and Caribe Azul, to finally be immerse on the genuine SidiRum's universe of experimentation and pop Latin culture.
