Kalise By El Guincho

Are the beats laid down by Barcelona-based 24 year old Pablo Diaz-Reixa a/k/a El Guincho "the new world music"? Maybe. His album, Alegranza! does mix traditional island song, African rhythms, and sampled psychedelics. It will be finally be released in the good 'ol US of A on October 7th via Young Turks/XL Recordings (and according to GvsB "remastered and possibly somewhat de-sampled"). The fact is, this album casts a spell on me -- it puts me in a trance. I fucking love it. It's definitely a runner up for album of the year.

Downloadables:
"Kalise" (box.net mp3)
"Palmitos Park" (box.net mp3)

This is what Alegranza! looks like.
