I caught up with Ulises Lozano, keyboard player and accordionist of Mexican band Kinky at Stubb’s. The band is currently on a U.S. tour in support of their recent release, Sueño de la Máquina, produced by legendary Dust Brother, John King.

Growing up in Monterrey, Kinky’s hometown, it was easy to follow the band’s overwhelming success. In the past decade, Kinky’s Spanglish mix of rock, dance and techno has made its way into movie soundtracks, TV commercials, FIFA and multiple music festivals, like Coachella and South by Southwest. The band is currently nominated for two Latin Grammys, including Best Alternative Album for Sueño de la Máquina and Best Alternative Song for “Negro Día.”

Ulises talks about touring, upcoming plans and collaborations, Mexican style and what it’s like working with producer John King. Feel free to watch the interview below.
