Pelada

Montreal

Pelada, the collaboration between singer Chris Vargas and producer Tobias Rochman, broke out of Montreal's underground rave scene with their mix of urgent lyrics focusing on themes of power, control, social justice contrasted against a backdrop of hardware samplers, synths, and drum machines. nnThe duo eventually signed to Berlin Experimental label PAN and have toured extensively in Europe and North America playing festivals such as Primavera Sound and clubs such as Berghain.
