Abraxas – La maté porque era mía featuring Espectra Negra

Now on BandCamp, SoundCloud and YouTube:

Second Abraxas Project song, dance electronic music to shake bodies and minds.

La maté porque era mía featuring Espectra Negra, the new and forceful Abraxas track, produced again with José Rodríguez at Estudio Antimateria/Moog24, is a hand in hand collaboration with the Mexican cyberpunk performer Espectra Negra, a multifaceted artist and activist known as a ritualistic noise and industrial music producer, body art performer, experimental filmmaker, sound designer, dj, tech-teacher and radio producer. Thanks to her anarchist background, she works constantly in the field of education about and for minorities as well as for artists who want to politised their views. She is also part of the Berlin based zine collective “AHACk: Sarah Connor Has a Dream” which publishes her written text on technology, transhumanism, feminism, capitalist realism and cyberpunk as a movement of resistance: bit.ly/3aQFMVJ

Both musicians decided to work together after the immediate connection felt when they met in Berlin in 2019, the city where she is actually based for almost two decades now. The result of that encounter is this powerful Techno Body Music song called ‘La maté porque era mía’ [I killed her ‘cause she was mine], inspired by the case of Mexican mother Yesenia Zamudio who raised a strong protest right outside the building where her own daughter was brutally murdered in Mexico City in 2016. Zamudio portraits the loss, frustration and pain of many mothers in the country who are victims of gender based violence up to this day. This track is a strong Ode against femicide, misogyny and violence towards women not only in the context of Mexico, which happens to be one of the most affected countries, but a worldwide phenomenon including Germany and Spain which needs to be addressed since many perpetrators come from all ages, cultures and social backgrounds. Many are people close to the victims such as partners or ex-partners. A serious problem we all need to take action against.

And remember listening to our first single “Embrace capitalism (until it strangles you)” right here and the second one, “Fake news, good newshere!

Hope you like it. Hope you dance it. Hope you think about it. Dance. Think. Fight!

LYRICS (In Spanish, English below)
————————————-
Yo soy una madre que me mataron a mi hija!
Y si soy una madre empoderada, y feminista
Y estoy que me canga la chingada
Tengo todo el derecho a quemar y a romper!

Dejen de estar lucrando con nuestro dolor
Y si me ven de negro, y si soy muy radical
Y si quemo, y rompo, y hago un pinche despadre en esta ciudad
Cuál es su pinche problema?
A mi me mataron a mi hija!
Yo no soy una colectiva
Ni necesito un tambor, ni necesito un pinche partido político que me represente

MUJERES
ASESINADAS
MUERTAS
VIOLADAS
DESCUARTIZADAS
MUJERES
TIRADAS
MUJERES
DESAPARECIDAS

Ya no señores!
Se les acabó!
Ya rompimos el silencio!
Y no les vamos a permitir que hagan un maldito circo de nuestro dolor!
Y si van a hablar, hablen de todas
Hablen de todas las que acosan y violan los maestros y los servidores públicos
A las que vierten ácido
Hablen de las niñas que violan en sus cunas sus propios padres y
Sus familias se quedan callados
Porque la religión católica se lo permite

MUERTAS
VIOLADAS
ABUSADAS
DESCUARTIZADAS
MUJERES!

No le voy a pedir permiso a nadie porque yo estoy rompiendo por mi hija
Y la que quiera romper, que rompa, y la que quiera quemar, que queme
Y la que no, que no nos estorbe!

EL DOLOR FEMENINO!
EL DOLOR DE LA MADRE TIERRA!
MUERTAS!

Y la que no, que no nos estorbe!

ASESINADAS!
MUJERES!

Ni una más, ni una más, ni un asesinato más!
Ni una más, ni una más, ni un asesinato más!
Ni una más, ni una más, ni un asesinato más!

ENGLISH

I am a mother whose daughter was killed!
And if I am an empowered mother, and a feminist
And I’m fucking sorry
I have every right to burn and break!

Stop profiting from our pain
And if they see me in black, and if I’m very radical
And if I burn, and break, and make a fucking ‘father’ in this city
What’s your fucking problem?
They killed my daughter!
I am not a collective
I don’t need a drum, I don’t need a fucking political party to represent me

WOMEN

WOMEN
THROWN
WOMEN
MISSING

No longer gentlemen!
They ran out!
We already broke the silence!
And we are not going to allow them to make a damn circus of our pain!
And if they are going to talk, talk about all them
Talk about all those who harass and violate teachers and public servants
To those who pour acid
Talk about girls who rape their own parents in their cribs and
Their families keep quiet
Because the Catholic religion allows it

DEAD
VIOLATED
ABUSED
QUARTERED
WOMEN!

I’m not going to ask anyone for permission because I’m breaking up for my daughter
And the one that wants to break, that breaks, and the one that wants to burn, that burns
And the one that doesn’t, don’t get in the way!

THE FEMALE PAIN!
THE PAIN OF MOTHER EARTH!
DEAD!

And the one that doesn’t, don’t get in the way!

KILLED!
WOMEN!

Not one more, not one more, not one more murder!
Not one more, not one more, not one more murder!
Not one more, not one more, not one more murder!
