Fans all over the world have been waiting patiently for Boombox Cartel’s first release of 2020, and it’s finally here. “Máquina” is the first of many tracks to be released this year as part of a body of work that will shed entirely new light on the genre-bending sound festivalgoers everywhere have come to know and love.

“Máquina” - meaning “machine” in Spanish - begins with somber vocal melodies and ominous atmospheric textures that give way to hopeful, arpeggiated synth progressions. Any glimmer of hope, however, is quickly extinguished when a brutal drop of serrating synths and mammoth trap drums hits us head on. As the song continues, the listener is warmly greeted with a more optimistic second drop that leaves us feeling that all hope may not, in fact, be lost.
