If Salvador Dali ever made a heist movie, then Mexico’s Troker would have been the soundtrack. Their sound careens between the sublime and the dangerous, turning on a dime to switch from precise and complex to wild and free.

To do that, the six-piece group has created a blend of the composed and the improvised, where metal riffage merges with powerhouse funk drumming and DJ scratching, and horn lines pull from jazz and the mariachi tradition of the band’s homeland. The heady mix is in full effect on their new album, Crimen Sonoro.

"A cohesive and balanced piece of art." -DooBeeDooBeeDoo NYC
"I can guarantee that you have never heard an album like this." -Glacially Musical
"Already among the best albums of the year, period." -World Beat Canada
"Somehow Troker is able to create a disciplined and compact high energy sound from a variety of influences that, until Crimen Sonoro, have not been very well acquainted with each other." -The New York City Jazz Record
