The second preview from ‘Pegamentos’ compilation is in hands of Dementira who continues with the tone of his latest releases. His new track “Mercancía” (Merchandise) fuses electronic and Latin sounds with a certain alternative inspiration, but keeping the accent on rhythms and samples. An initial kick of what will be his next EP soon to be released via Discos Pegaos.
Pegamentos is a series of compilations by Discos Pegaos oriented to the dance floor, with local and unprejudiced readings of club music.
The fifth edition of the Pegamentos compilation, the flagship of Discos Pegaos label and a diligent showcase of Latin American electronic scene, effortlessly crosses two worlds that coexist on the eight tracks setting up this new chapter. First, the presentation of the new generation of producers, a "new wave" of artists holding a banner of vertigo and experimentation within a club scene of open-mindedness and resistance; and on the other hand there is the work of those who have already traveled through the vicissitudes of the scene, whose drive remains active and restless, reaffirming their own relevance. The good result of these ingredients is evident in a generous selection of styles, visions and proposals, unequivocal features of the alma mater of a label such as Discos Pegaos.

He has edited music for the dominican label Stereoptico and produced the hiphop chilean band Disperso.

María Jesús is half of the duo Escorpio, part of the Colectivo Martirio and producer under the alias of Maga, with tracks released on platforms such as Salviatek, Onwax and Panal, among others. Maga's non-binary identity is directly reflected in the music, leading him to experiment with classic IDM sounds, melodies with sorrowful thoughts, and a strong South American identity, achieving a characteristic streak that balances between clubbing and introspection.
Sentinela del Norte
Diego Vergara continues on the path he started with “Parte del Paisaje”, the debut under the alias Sentinela del Norte. After the premiere a couple of days ago of the video for his track “Dame un Mi”, his return with “Millones” is part of a new material that he has been preparing during the pandemic, and with which he projects the future loooking firmly to their new productions.

Diego Linsambarth (also known as Diego Robot), prolific Chilean producer, director of the Vaguada Costera label and collaborator of the trap project Estasi Assoluto, makes his debut on Discos Pegaos under the alias DLC.
