Journey to the Underground: Todosantos
If you've ever wanted to experience the audiovisual equivalent of a sugar rush, Todosantos may just do it for you. Their "seizure-inducing" videos/graphics and their hyper, pulse-driven sound they refer to as "tukky bass," make this Venezuelan band innovators of the underground scene.
Currently located in Brooklyn, the group's members: Peach, Pharaoh, and Purple Gold, hope to turn kids into "crowd surfing lunatics from coast to coast."
Their first U.S. released EP, "Acid Girlzzz," comes with marbeled colored vinyl, a DVD with three videos & high quality mp3s, 3-D artwork with custom 3-D glasses, and exlusive remixes.
"This Todosantos video embodies every ADD-ridden, crotch-grabbing, whistle-blowing, only-sees-neon-color, blog-house neu-raver out there...dubstep, 4x4, speed garage, baile funk, kuduro and ghettotech mixed with Venezuela’s ghetto dance music.’ Wow, I couldn’t have described it better myself. I don’t even know if I would have known where to begin to describe it".

"They're actually dayglo Venezuelan lunatics camping out in Brooklyn. If you stare at this video long enough you'll see a dancing 3D penguin"
