Frikstailers is the super-rhythmic and sampladelic project in which Rafael Caivano and Lisandro Sona work their magic for freestyle dancefloors. In their compositions, pieces of artists such as Britney Spears, Madonna or Justin Timberlake, are dismembered in microsounds that mutate until they reach another aesthetic and meaning. These mainstream hits pass through the multiprocessor of Frikstailers and are mixed with noises taken almost from a wide array of sources. The final result touches on styles such as dancehall, cumbia, reggaeton, hip hop, funk, house and techno. Frikstailers have played at festivals in Argentina such as Mutek Buenos Aires (2006), Niu Fest!!! (2006) and QuboCultural.Zip (2006) and this year they were a part of the outstanding line up of Experimentaclub Festival and have also performed at the Golden Pudel Club (Hamburg, Germany) as part of the Musik Fetischisten Ohren Charakter experimental dance night. Some of the most important musicians of the world-wide underground have performed there, including Dabrye, Daedelus, Dj /Rupture, Jason Forrest, Funkstörung, Kid 606, Matmos, Modeselektor, and Squarepusher. Frikstailers are also part of the catalogue of the promotion label Pino Rec, based in Mexico and Argentina, whose objective is to promote Latin American artists that compose electronic fusion music.
