You’ve been listening El Guincho for a while since we can’t resist ourselves from including him on our playlists. One of the best discoveries of this year has made a mixtape, not an official release but a mix of the music that influenced him as a musician. You can download “El Guincho’s The Fader Mix” for free at one of my very favorite sites: Gorilla vs. Bear. It contains original samples along with some touches of the Spanish sensation. I’m especially thrilled about having Caetano Veloso, Souley Kante and Jorge Ben in the same track. This is not a full album but a single 34 minute song that’s just a must-download.
