Lata is the dub and electrolatino project from chilean Andrew Collyer, under which he has released music on labels such as Akwaaba (France/Ghana), Post World Industries (USA), The Rebel Sounds (Canada), Pueblo Nuevo (Chile) & Japon Records (Argentina).
Andrew lives and works in Santiago, although as a youth he lived in Arica, the chilean city closest to both Peru and Bolivia, sandwiched between the desert and the ocean. So, spending a lot time in the desert and in the ocean as a kid exposed him to the primary ideas of space, rhythm and flow. Playing every rock instrument in many bands growing up helped too. And later, going to architecture school and then working as an architect by day and making music at night sealed the deal.
