Description

"One of those bands that's tough to write about because they defy the sort of categorizations writers like to tag music with, Kinky specializes in a sort of Latino funk that draws from rock as well as electronica, not to mention the wealth of rhythms Latin music offers. The five-piece band from Monterrey, Mexico, caused quite a stir among music industry insiders and critics with their self-titled debut in 2002. Produced by renowned Brit Chris Allison and released on his Sonic360 label, the album was part funk-rock fusion, part Latin alternative, and part electronica -- which led to all-encompassing hybrid tags along the lines of "rocktronica en español." But unlike music industry insiders and critics, good ol' music lovers didn't need a tag -- they just enjoyed the music, whatever its style. And indeed, Kinky inspired a quick and large following, playing an abundance of live shows that would quickly evolve into manic dance parties."
