    Pablo Diaz-Riexa is the mastermind behind the dizzying, kaleidoscopic world-beat of Barcelona's El Guincho, whose debut explores a myriad of genres, from tropicalia and afro-pop to surf and tejano, through the cracked lens of Diaz-Riexa's postmodern musical sensibility. Using looped samples, including overdubbed layers of frantically chanted vocals, Diaz-Riexa has created a trippy, infectiously exuberant set of tunes that recall a more rhythmically inclined take on some of the Animal Collective's more pop-inflected outings.

  • Critic Reviews
    Spin (p.118) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Drums. Pure, awesome drums. They swarm this album, spiky and syncopated Latin-style, rockin' and krautin' and Bollywoodin', smacking the inside of your speakers..."
    Spin (p.47) - Ranked #33 in Spin's "40 Best Albums Of 2008" -- "Barcelona's Pablo Diaz-Reixa samples and psychedelizes deliriously happy records to evoke the chaos of carnival time."
    Blender (Magazine) (p.78) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Layering his own instrumental and vocal lines atop drum tracks samples from multiple sources...he's a one-man commune you're free to join."
