Martín PDI is the pseudonym of young chilean artist Martín Peña Daiber (1996). His close relationship to music started early through his interest in technology, especially with videogames, that kept him abstracted from the public space for a great part of his childhood. Amongst wires, screens and controllers Martín PDI absorbs the landscape of sound of consoles and links it to the violent narrative of videogames. In his adolescence he oriented his interests to hip-hop and Latin American music, generating an understanding of local sounds and the global influence of afro-descendent commercial music. Nowadays he is developing a musical corpus based in an imaginary of the streets that dialogues with the conflicts of inequality and social cohesion that affect the continent: reggaeton, pop, hip-hop, grime, mixed, chopped up and atomized to create new meaning through contemporary rhythms
Una Pelea Limpia (A clean fight) is Martin PDI’s debut EP, produced and released by Cazeria Cazador Records. His first EP proposes contemporary, synthetics and danceable sounds inspired by he roughness and violence of Latin American city life.
The artist develops the notion of synesthesia: from sound experience, we are remitted to images of sharp steel knives, chains and customized cars.
In this release, sampling finds a new signification: not only in music language, but as a conceptual tool that sampling cultural forms.
Una pelea limpia appears as the bastard son of Grime, Reggaeton, Hip Hop and other rhythms born from the street.
