A little over a month ago, Billboard announced a large bit of news: a partnership between Camilo Lara (a.k.a. Mexican Institute of Sound) and Toy Selectah (formerly of Control Machete) as Compass. The duo visited and recorded in seven different cities with a grand total of 90 collaborators for an album that will be released some time next year.
I actually spent a day at Red Bull Music Studios in Los Angeles this past summer while the duo worked on a few tracks. Below is footage I shot of Lara and Toy working with singer/musician Ceci Bastida on some vocals.
The duo will also tour the world together next year and will be part of Mexico’s Vive Latino festival.
