  • Buenos Aires label and collective AGVA channels serious heat on their latest release, which touches on experimental reggaeton, batida, funk carioca and candomblé. A quirky gem with the kinetic energy of a spinning yo-yo, "Respuesta" wins you over with its charm and personality. Playful sounds—contorting bleeps, muffled whirring and what feels like the cascading clicks of a rainstick—create surprises at every turn, challenging dancers to bust out new moves. Given its sheer zest, this record would work as well early on in a set as it does at peak time.
