AS FOUND

Here's a nutty cat, Memo Rios, from Mexico City, who apparently did a fair amount of electro and rap, heavy on the covers. The one that sucked me in was "Techno Taco". It's like some cheesy Screamers Lite en Espanol. I didn't think it could be topped, or tainted, but I hadn't heard his covers of "Ice Ice Baby" and "Rappers Delight". Dude went from borderline oddball genius to ordinary oddball pretty quick. But the sparse production makes these interesting, as does the Spanish, and there are nice surprises, like the James Brown scream sample at :43 in "Memocotorreo". Whatever, I've gone this far...
