Bocafloja, a Mexico City rapper with a 12-year solo career, delivers his finest effort yet on this his sixth album. In it, we find what is probably the most advanced album ever made in the Spanish language for the level of the presented discourse, which is backed by a strong academic and intellectual foundation. Bocafloja is, among Spanish-speaking rappers, by far the most eloquent and the most willing to deal with uncomfortable problems that are often hidden deep in the fabric of society.
This album goes farther away than any other in its exploration of colonization and the problems that it brings; problems that are so deep-seeded in our minds and in society that have been accepted and treated as the norm. Patologías del Invisible Incómodo is about using the body, mind, and soul of people as a way to break the hegemonies that hold people down in society. It deals with issues from cultural appropriation, gentrification, to the evolution of food and its usage in propaganda and colonization. This album will leave you with a sense of the processes and ideas which hold together the strange society we are a part of.
On the musical side, you will find this album also atypical in its use of samplings, particularly on the appearance of acid jazz tones, and heavy soul influences mainly represented by euphony of accompanying vocals through several tracks.
