El Guincho - 2016

It’s been over five years since Spanish producer Pablo Diaz-Reixa released a record under his alias EL GUINCHO. Now, he finally makes a comeback with HiperAsia, his first record since the beloved 2010 longplayer Pop Negro. The record will be released on February 12 (digitally) and March 11 (physically) via label Nacional. Diaz-Reixa also teams up with with Wellness to release the record as wearable items.

In a press release he describes that the new EL GUINCHO record was partly also inspired by Chinese bazaars in Madrid.

I was blown away and entirely fascinated by the place. After visiting I discarded almost all the material I had composed and started from scratch with the premise: how would that place sound if it were music? Hiperasia is Madrid in macro. Las Tablas, China City, the M-30, Dalian Wanda Group, the Edificio España. It means me adapting to a new and exotic way of life. Experiencing more the city, spending more time in its streets, an experience much less private than Barcelona.
