With its dark and pulsating bass synth line, “No Hay” is nothing short than exhilarating. Vargas shouts that there is frankly no solution to our post-modern world problems in a recently reclaimed castellano. Growing up in a Colombian household with parents who insisted on teaching her English as her first language, Vargas uses language as more than a mere way to deliver her angry message; it serves as an instrument for the construction of her own identity. On “Ten Cuidado,” the single’s b-side, Vargas vocal punches are juxtaposed to the acid techno beat, constructing tension and anxiety as it progresses. Pelada is raw, rude and immediate, making it practically impossible not to fall for their hard-hitting and intoxicating first effort. Also, don't miss out on that club-ready remix of "Ten Cuidado" by JOCK CLUB (Temple, AZ).
