La copio y pego por si os acaso

So we're really going with "glo-fi"? Let's move in untrackable, real-time bursts: Glo-house is a micro-subgenre (population: 1) and newjack Spanish house whiz John Talabot is its Jebediah Springfield. (You want staying power? See it now: The Month in Glo-House and Pinwheel-Tech, coming to Pitchfork, spring 2011.)

Strange bedfellows these: a song nominally about sunshine intended to soundtrack an activity-- dancing-- that occurs almost exclusively indoors and in the dark. Unlike some of this year's otherRa-heavy artists, Talabot is very much a dancefloor producer, and "Sunshine" has a fuzzed-out coda and abrupt ending (presumably for mixing purposes) to prove it. It's "Sunshine"'s beginning, however, that will snatch your attention: a sickle-shaped guitar lick that swipes playfully at the edge of a snare-like patter and, several measures in, a sternum-arranging bass kick.

Talabot works a bit of sleight of hand from there, carefully unfurling new sounds and masking old ones, but only while your attention is diverted: a slowly budding choir of voices as you mull that guitar line; popping claps to distract you as it returns. A restrained, female "Sun-shine" is as close as the track gets to a diva moment, but by its apex nearly six minutes in, you're not sure to which of the track's many elements you've been listening and for how long, though they sort of all feel breezy and evening-wear-neat. There's no law that says your shimmying need be contained, and it's nearly August: Go commandeer a rooftop and work up an ordinance violation.

No sé por qué tanto bombo a este productor, la verdad que tiene su mérito no lo niego y un sonido que lo identifica y todo lo que tu quieras,este disco es ABURRIDISIMO, mas musica post adolescente del montón , no me disgusta el rollo tropical de voces y tal pero es mas aburrido que ver a erick morillo pinchando pachanga...a ver si el proximo disco saca algo decente.
