"I see in the work of Dr. Alderete a mutant Latin American identity, which ultimately is what best represents us. An evolution from the postpunk to pop, but always refers to a continental scar. In Latino culture, there aren't plenty of examples that combine a popular sense, the elegance and daring. I think the greatest achievement of Alderete is to cross those roads and make it look quite natural."
Leonardo Tarifeño, journalist and record producer.
