Not a big of latin music or even latin singers, but of late I've developed an affinity for both, especially this new one from Federico Aubele who stems from the beautiful country of Argentina and is doin' his thang on the ESL record label (Thievery Corporation, Blue States, Desmond Williams, Les Hommes). Aubele shines on his debut "Gran Hotel Buenos Aires" with some very familiar, yet unique downtempo. It's unique because the handsome, young artist utilizes styles of dub, folk, ambient and triphop, and pulls it all together with his wonderful Latin guitar. And the vocals are wonderful even if I don't understand what's being sung--but at least are provided the lyrics to be deciphered by your Spanish speaking friends--that is if you have any. At any rate, If you're into Thievery Corporation, Santana, Suba or even Bebel Giberto, check out Federico Aubele! The guy's pretty dawg-gone BIEN!
