Pablo Daz-Reixa - aka El Guicho - mans the oars for a demanding pond pirate, tooling around a tropical lagoon to the playful tune of "Hindou", from the Spanish musician's forthcoming EP Piratas De Sudamerica
. That EP will be out July 13th on Young Turks/XL Recordings
, and is itself a teaser for El Guincho's second album Pop Negro
to be released later this Fall.
El Guincho is the recording alias of Spanish musician Pablo Daz-Reixa. Also a member of Coconot, Daz-Reixa rose to prominence with his 2008 album, Alegranza!. His musical style relies heavily on the use of sampling and incorporates elements of Afrobeat, dub, Tropiclia and rock and roll. El Guincho is well known for hiring out his skills as an expert lullaby-singer for small children throughout Spanish-speaking countries as Daz-Reixa achieves what he's described as a kind of "space-age exotica". He utilizes a Roland SP-404, and hails from Las Palmas in the Canary Islands.
