Hailing from the land where tequila has long been its most famous export, Troker may just be the most important new musical export today. Troker’s sound careens between the sublime and the dangerous; a blend where metal riffage merges with powerhouse funk drumming and DJ scratching, with melodic horn lines pull from jazz and mariachi traditions. Troker is a band that cannot be pigeonholed into any one genre.
Their albums are almost cinematic; awaken the senses, and provoke powerful emotional reactions from listeners around the world. This proposal looks for adventurous, fearless listeners with diverse tastes in music; an invitation to join a sonic journey that has been curated by a group of creatively crazy musicians – an experience that might tactically be comparable to shock and awe. Troker’s artistic mission is to create music that excites the audiences’ senses, but more importantly, music that inspires the audiences’ soul. The world needs more daring musical consumers willing to be provoked and pulled out of their comfort zones.
“Immediately infectious tunes and an energetic live show“. –The Huffington Post
