El Remolon Announces European Tour, Releases Remixes EP and B-Sides Bootleg (Free D/L)

By 04 September, 2014

It certainly seems to have been a busy week for Argentina’s tropical bass/digital cumbia producer El Remolon. Not only has he just announced the dates for a new European tour, but he has also released a remixes EP on Dutty Artz and set free a new album, a “bootleg” of sorts, featuring 12 of his so-called b-sides.

Before we get into the nitty-gritty of the new releases and tour dates, let’s just remember that El Remolon only released Selva earlier this year, following on from the soundtrack to album Boxeo Constitución in 2013. He’s a busy chap alright.

So, let’s start with the tour dates. El Remolon will be touring Europe from September 12th-27th, with stops in Germany, Czech Republic, Spain and Sweden. See the full dates and tour poster at the bottom of this page.

On Monday he released an EP of remixes of his “El Chamuyero” track featuring versions by Chants and Atropolis. That release came out on Dutty Artz and you can find out more details here.

This week El Remolon also made available a new “bootleg”-style album called El Album Rojo which contains b-sides and remixes, including collaborations with Miss Bolivia, La Portuaria and Chancha Via Circuito. Here’s how he describes the release:

From the Moombah-Cumbia-EDM track inspired by pop singer Russian Red, to Gilda (Argentine 90’s Cumbia Star) dub stepped out, to Mali, a song influenced by German Schaffel techno and featuring the band Tartit shuffling in Tresillo rhythm. This project really features a little bit of everything: there are even actual B-Sides that got left off the ‘Selva’ album such as the track involving ElMayonesa and the romantic song “Olivdarte.”
