SASound: Melina in LA, Crown in the studio, Exponential online
Published: October 9, 2013
EXPONENTIAL EXPOSED: Not happy with just releasing Atonement, his collaboration with Diego Bernal, Ernest Gonzales is reviving his Exponential Records label in full force. “The label is up and going again,” Gonzales told SA Sound. “It has always been a good home for Texas electronic music and I have decided that it will remain that way.” The new site is exprecords.wordpress.com, and the whole catalog (about 20 albums) can be downloaded for free at exponential.bandcamp.com.
HAVE YOU DONE YOUR HOMEWORK? R.E.L. (Chisme) and Mexican Stepgrandfather (Marco Cervantes) have been seen a lot together lately. First, at the Aztec’s SA Music Awards show on September 28 and days later at Friday’s Hi-Tones CD release party of Homework, the joint project in which they share beats, Cervantes plays bass and they both rap. You can download two free tracks of the six-song EP at doyourhomework.bandcamp.com.
