Revancha del Tango (2001) - Gotan Project [Amazon.com] [FR] [DE] [UK]
Gotan Project is a group based in Paris, consisting of musicians Philippe Cohen Solal, Eduardo Makaroff and Christoph H. Müller (a former member of Touch El Arab). They formed in 1999. Their first release was "Vuelvo al sur/El capitalismo foraneo" in 2000, followed by the album "La Revancha del Tango". Their music is clearly tango, but also uses electronic elements like samples, beats and sounds to it. Out-takes were aired on Gilles Peterson's show "Worldwide" aired on BBC one in May 2004. Philippe Cohen Solal recently released a DJ set: "Inspiración Espiración - A Gotan Project DJ Set Selected & Mixed by Philippe Cohen Solal" (2004). This album also includes a second CD with the track "La Cruz del Sur" that was meant for "La Revancha del Tango", but didn't make it in 2001.
Before Gotan Project, Müller and Cohen Solal formed a duo called Boyz from Brazil.
Gotan Project is currently (June 2004) back in the studio creating a new album, scheduled to be released in September 2005. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gotan_Project [Mar 2005]
