Allie has been managing artists independently for the past 6 years, including La Yegros, Lulacruza, Tremor and Lagartijeando just to name a few. Her current clients are Femina and Uji (see below).
Femina is a trio of female Patagonian singer songwriters whose diverse songs are characterized by show-stopping harmonies and a magical on-stage chemistry. Fémina hails from the tiny mountain town of San Martin de los Andes in Southern Argentina and is made up of sisters Sofia “Toti” Trucco (vocals, guitar, ronroco) and Clara "Wewi" Trucco (vocals, percussion), and childhood best friend Clara Miglioli (vocals, guitar). Their live shows are often theatrical in nature, and mix a variety of Latin genres such as cumbia, candombe, rumba and boleros with international rhythms alike such as rap and funk. A unique and thrilling combo, the trio has toured internationally in the US, Australia, Brazil, Mexico, and Europe, released two albums and are currently working away at their third full length LP with acclaimed British producer Quantic to be released in early 2019.
"Ain't it beautiful? Beautiful and so precise with the power in those voices. There is something very earnest there. They've got something to say” – Iggy Pop on Fémina on BBC Radio 6 Music
UJI (Luis Maurette) is a nomadic electronic producer and multi-instrumentalist born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and raised throughout Latin America. Half of the pioneering duo “Lulacruza” since its inception in 2005, with whom he has released 5 albums, a feature film and multiple world tours. His music is dance floor bound: rooted in various indigenous traditions while borrowing from the aesthetics and sound design of electronic music. With his new solo project he is touring extensively around Europe, the US, the Middle East, Russia and Latin America.
Reflecting his experiences in both the Latin American and Afro-Latin diasporas, Uji´s enchantment seems to suspend time, encompassing the present while drawing from primal essences ingrained in our collective unconscious, enrapturing us in the ritual of dance. On tracks like “La Descarriá” featuring Corina Lawrence and Miss Bolivia, Uji skillfully crafts scenes from the high plains of Bolivia in their yearly carnaval celebrations paired with a Tarantino-styled guitar riff. Or we find ourselves transported to Colombia’s tropical “pueblos” (villages) dancing into the sweaty night on his remix of Petrona Martinez’s “Mariangola/Milagros”, to daybreak in a Berlin warehouse party with “Kiok” featuring Barrio Lindo. Nothing of Uji’s experimentation feels arbitrary, rather carefully woven into multi textured landscapes of sound, where a thought out process is palpable behind each risk.
Most of the sounds we find in this album are field recordings done by Uji himself, compiling a vast sound bank over the years on his travels all over the globe, including a wide array of instruments from his collection such as; congas, cununo, marimba, balafon, charango, bombo leguero, sonajas, as well as analog drum machines, samplers, synthesizers and vocals. A multi layered assemblage with deep and rich textures from around the world.
"Deep and rich with texture, Uji creates dance music that feels as ancient as it does new." - The HuffingtonPost
