Space to Surf: Matorralman and "El Taxi del Mañana"

Feel like some electronic surf music with a space theme? Today's random song is just for you! El Taxi del Mañana is from Matorralman's 2010 album Guataque Estelar. The product of Mexican composer and producer Miguel Rizo, the band incorporates surf rock, French yé-yé, psychedelia, and a lot of twang guitar into a type of space pop. Matorralman lists Hammond Grooves, 60's garage, freakbeat, soul, psych, funk, porno beats, exotica, and lounge as influences, and takes as its inspiration European teen sexploitation films of the 1960s and 70s. The music is meant to be party music, says Rizo. Judge for yourself - are you dancing yet?
