El Santo is the name of a seemingly one off project from the musician Grimdor. Grimdor makes music under many names and Dark Sorcery Records seems to be a haven for all of the strange magic they do. This releases is inspired and dedicated to Rodolfo Guzmán Huerta, known professionally as El Santo, who was one of the, if not the, most famous Mexican luchadors / actors of all time. El Enmascarado de Plata takes its title from the 1954 horror movie of the same which sees El Santo as “a crime-fighting duo known as El Enmascadero de la Plata, ( The Silver Mask), and his adolescent sidekick Pecas (Freckles), as they take on a murderous Mad Doctor and an evil gang-leader called El Lobo,(The Wolf).” This is usually not the territory of dungeon synth but the care and adoration makes the very broken lofi sounds of the synth come alive with charm and wit. El Enmascarado de Plata might be a one time project unless there is a larger interest in lofi DS venerating wrestling stars of the 50’s and 60s. If that time comes I would be the first in line to buy a ticket.
