About this album

Gotan Project’s debut album La Revancha Del Tango brought an amazing new sound to the world of electronic music, and to the world of tango. By combining the beats and production of club with the accordions, strings, and melodies of tango, the international trio created a form of downtempo that was more intriguing than relaxing, and more organic than mechanical. To follow up this album, the group — which consists of Philippe Cohen Solal, Edouardo Makaroff, and Christoph H. Muller — has released Inspiración — Espiración, a collection of “new tracks, remixes, & funky tangos” assembled by Cohen. Despite the disparate influences and unusual concept, La Revancha Del Tango is, first and foremost, a music lover’s album. The tricky rhythms and smooth playing keep the intellect busy while the chill-out groove and lovely sounds relax the body. Inspiración — Espiración, though, is essentially a DJ’s album. While the music has a similar vibe, the art here lies in elements such as the sequencing, the re-mixing, and the selection. While the new album’s certainly interesting, Solal doesn’t succeed as well in his DJ role as he does in his earlier tasks. Still, fans of Gotan Project’s earlier work should be pleased. This disc comes off like a radio station from the future, dedicated to playing only pieces related to Gotan Project and their putative circle. Solal, working the early-morning show, opens with two more traditional tangos that have influenced him. The first track, “La Cumparsita” is a mid-tempo number by Cerioti, captured on vinyl in 1973. Astor Piazzolla’s “Cité Tango” follows so smoothly that the two could have been blended together (which, in a sense, they were).
