Pablo Fierro Taps An Ancient Power On World Dance Track 'Bangalora'

The Afro house spearhead flexes his reach with a pallet of eastern inspired sounds


Some artists have an “it” factor. They are movers and shakers of both industry and sound. Although it can be challenging to stand out in the expansive world of dance music, Pablo Fierro has undeniably risen to the challenge and beyond. While he’s an accomplished remixer and collaborator, some of our favorite Fierro works have been his stand-alone originals. This edition of Track Of The Week series honors one of those originals, Pablo Fierro’s “Bangalora.”

Bangalora

Fierro is renowned for his ability to tap into the vast corners of the globe for new sonic inspirations. “Bangalora” leans into the rich cultural pallet of India. Deep-rooted percussion first captures the listener in a spell characterized by energetic movement. As the instrumental arsenal grows to include a wealth of traditional strings and a bewitching sahnai loop, one can’t help but slip into a trance of physical and spiritual expression. The vocal cries are the final piece of this soul-surging puzzle, taking clear past the moon and the stars into a world beyond space and time.

“Bangalora” was released on Fierro’s label, We’re Here, a launching point for Pablo’s most worldly music to date that grew to include a weekly residency in Ibiza this past summer. He also heads his world club music label, Vida Records.

Fierro’s prowess as a selector, performer, and producer has elevated him to the highest echelons of reputation in dance music circles. Projects with world-class talents like Gilles Peterson, Louie Vega, Atjazz, Black Coffee, and more have readily demonstrated his uncanny ability to transcend genre lines. It's no small feat to seamlessly blur genre lines while retaining the spirit of house music in this way, we are anxiously waiting Fierro's next move.
