This Mexican Musician Just Made An Awesome Remix Of A Beck Song

You might think you’re not familiar with the Mexican Institute of Sound, but anyone who has spent time cruising around the streets of Grand Theft Auto 5 has definitely heard his work.

Camilo Lara, the musical genius behind MIS, was one of the hosts of radio station East Los FM, and the song “Estoy” – an effortless blend of mellow electronic and traditional Mexican sounds – was a highlight on the game’s soundtrack.

So it makes perfect sense that Beck, no stranger to genre fusions himself, drafted MIS to remix his recent release “Wow”.

Lara, takes Beck’s “Wow” for a gallop into electronic cumbia territory, draping the song in percussion and horns that would not seem out of place in a caballero flick, and then retrofits the entire tune in 8-bit bleeps and electronic squiggles that will no doubt bring on a wave of NES nostalgia. The track, renamed “Guau”, represents a genre MIS and others have spent years pioneering – it honors Mexico’s traditional music, but stays true to their modern approach.

Beck’s new album is expected to drop in October. Fans of MIS can check out a recent interview here.
