There are many people in this world, that make music, but Santana is one of the people that feel it, live it. It’s not “just” music or only a way of life, it is his life. Traveling the world, playing in the streets, those are parts of Santanas every day. He loves to share his musical energy with other people, not afraid of being turned down by others. One of the main constants in his musical production is the ever present emotional honesty. this can be felt out in the streets of New York or when he’s performing with his band in front of thousands of people. Read more, open your eyes and witness the world of a true and honest musical artist.icken .

Guadalajara. It’s such a weird place for independent music. Most of their bands show a great deal of quality, like nowhere else in Mexico and yet they suffer the most to reach great heights. With the exception of, maybe, Descartes a Kant, Technicolor Fabrics and Radaid, the rest of the bands are very little known. They suffer from a lot of the same mistakes: Lack of vision and management strategies, ego arrogance, and being captive of a local scene that is more and more isolated year after year. Today it’s very difficult for a local band to play in its own city: people won’t go and pay to see their own bands and bands from other cities never go there to play cause there’s nowhere to play (except in the annual 212 RMX public festival). So they don’t have any guidance on how to promote their music and, eventually, will end up forgotten for years. And it’s very sad because there’s a lot of talent wasted while the rest of the country suffers from poor musical quality, especially in Mexico City, where all the important media is found.

REDLAKE CIRCUS – OUROBOROS
Esta banda ubicua lo mismo se instala en Londres, que en Nueva York, Berlín o el DF. Gracias a ello se han nutrido de diferentes influencias y convergen dentro de su sonido pesado, brutal, muy denso. En Ouroboros, su álbum debut, lo mismo hay asomos a Alice In Chains que a Tool, Melvins o St. Vitus. Sin duda una de las grandes bandas pesadas de México.

Tell us about where you are from and how you got to this position today.
We are a Mexican band formed in London by Le Sxantanas (vocals & guitars) and Luis C. Iriarte (drums). We have been traveling and playing all around Mexico, Europe, and the U.S.A. Living in London, Miami, Playa Del Carmen, Valle De Bravo, Mexico City, Guadalajara, Berlin, and now New York. We’ve been working hard on promoting the album and playing live the most we can.
What do you have coming up? What are some of the new projects we can expect to see?
We just came back from Europe, promoting our first album, working now on our second one, and ready to start touring the states. As well, we’ve been collaborating with a great Circus & Fire Performance from Berlin called Fuego Rojo, we are planning to set a whole tour with them. It brings you a completely different atmosphere, something new and unexpected on every show.

Redlake Circus, Ouroboros Tour 2012.
Pocas bandas de metal se distinguen del montón y todavía son menos aquellas que viven lo suficiente para ver la luz de su primer disco. Por fortuna, Redlake Circus, prometedora banda mexicana de Metal Progresivo Experimental, ha vivido y llamado la atención lo suficiente como para atraer los ojos de gente como Allan Ahearne, quién les invita a tocar a Nueva York en 2008 y es productor de eventos para bandas como Nine Inch Nails, Jhonny Cash, Marilyn Manson, Alice in Chains, Kiss, Metalica, entre otros. Matt Bayles, productor del primer disco de Redlake: “Ouroboros” quien ha trabajado con bandas como Pearl Jam, Isis y Mastodon por nombrar algunos y Ed Brooks, encargado de la masterización del disco.
