Gotan Project Lunatico (Ya Basta) It's 41/2 years since Gotan Project - Parisian DJ/producer Philippe Cohen-Solal, Swiss electro DJ Christophe H. Mueller and Argentinian singer/guitarist Eduardo Makaroff - introduced the world to electro-tango with their million-selling debut La Revancha del Tango. Blending Latin rhythms with house beats, La Revancha was an instant smash. Anyone hoping for more of the same on Lunatico, their second studio album, may find themselves feeling a little disappointed - at least initially. Electing to follow a more laid-back vibe, Lunatico loses some of the instant appeal of their previous work and, on first listen, sounds too similar to much of the other Latin chill-out compilations that have become popular. But perseverance is rewarded by a delicately woven set of songs that simmers rather than bubbles. Named after a champion race- horse owned by 1930s tango hero Carlos Gardel, Lunatico is a conscious attempt to embrace the traditions of tango music. The electronic beats have been pared back while live instrumentation, much of it recorded in Buenos Aries with Argentinian pianist Gustavo Beytelmann, is brought to the fore. The result is a set that is intrinsically cinematic and would be more suited to sipping a caipirinha at a bijou outdoor cafe than upping the tempo in a dance hall. Indeed, the set recalls a more chic, French-influenced Buena Vista Social Club, particularly the final track, Paris, Texas (which was written by Ry Cooder). Those looking forward to something more upbeat will just have to wait for the remixes.
