Interlude, Back! New Playlist!


As announced earlier we will speed up our coverage on your FYCs for the Latin Grammys, soon we will keep reviewing albums as usual. This interlude is to present the new playlist, the most eclectic yet that includes all Latin music throughout, from the salsa of Willy Chirino and La 33 to the Ranchero genre with Vicente Fernandez. The selection of songs coincidentally turned out to be a perfect parallel guide to this year’s Latin Grammy Coverage. Also some people had complained about our playlist not having any volume or way to forward a song, the problem is not only fixed but all songs now also include a URL of the site where the mp3 track is hosted. Of course I have to mention this disclaimer, we don’t actually upload any of these songs but are very thankful for those who do and take the risk.

Artist of the week: Jovenes y Sexys

Basically there were two EPs around me for the entire summer, both coming from the excellent creative guys at Poni Republic. Nuuro and Jovenes Sexys are both very young Venezuelan acts currently manufacturing careers outside of their country. Jovenes y Sexys is a duo that resides in Mexico City and it has been one of the best discoveries we’ve recently heard. Melancholic and minimalistic songs that would have fit the movie Juno (Jason Reitman, 2007) perfectly, they may just change pop Latino itself. Poni Republic breathes freedom, to the point that they have opted to support a variety of artists around the globe and offer their music for free at their website. For me, getting the EPs Amigos by Nuuro and Bruno by Jovenes y Sexys was the best gift I’ve gotten this year.

During our break the very best blog about Latin music La Onda Tropical celebrated its 3rd anniversary, and we couldn’t be happier for them. Looking at our stats we have noticed that after google most of the hits we’ve gotten come from your space, thanks for the support. Congratulations Chapin and El Guiri!
