El Guincho is the recording alias of Spanish musician Pablo Diaz-Reixa. Also a member of Coconot, Diaz-Reixa rose to prominence with his 2008 album, Alegranza! His musical style, influenced by a broad range of artists relies heavily on the use of sampling and incorporates elements of Afrobeat, dub, Tropicalia, and rock and roll. El Guincho combines these influences to achieve what he describes as a kind of “space age exotica.”
Space age exotica indeed. When I watch the video for his new song Bombay, I see all sorts of Carl Sagan references

Fresh, percussion centered Hip Hop, with simple instrumentation and deep lyrics. Just how I like it.

You know, i’ve always wondered why the majority of people love dogs, over cats. I mean, clearly, there are the obvious reasons.
Dogs are: More jovial. Loyal, Better patrolmen for when you’re drunk and passed out. Much cuter as babies.
But lets not be hasty..
Cats are: Less noisy, cheaper, clean up after themselves, and ninjas.
What’s this? We are no better off now than when we started this debate. We may never solve this great mystery.
I met Camron Mcclure, aka Sole Profit, about a year ago. Profit has been dropping juicy delectable ear candy since 94′; fresh out of the Bay Area, Sole Profit is a stark contrast to popular Atlanta rap, and A breath of fresh air, i’d say.
