Home of high-quality Downtempo & Balearic hymns, the Buenos Aires-based outlet Fértil Discos is the place to be for those who like to lose themselves to mesmerising slo-mo cuts. Their ever-growing catalogue is second to none amid such genres and fails to disappoint whenever they add another brick in the wall.
Doubt? Just check out the brand-new addition to the Fértil’s solid wall: “Muchas Estrellas” is the starry result of the collaboration between the Argentinian artists El Remolón (programming, synths, and electric guitar) and Brawlio (vocals) – not their first rodeo together, by the way: They have already successfully teamed up before and came up with the well-received “Los Pájaros”, also published on Fértil.
El Remolón & Brawlio’s “Muchas Estrellas” is a reversion of “Contrapunto de Tonadas”, originally compiled by Leda Valladares in 1991 and performed by Alcira Puca and Santos Estrada, and comes packed with heavy doses of emotion and sentimentality delivered through its beautiful vocals, groovy percussive elements, mellow guitar riffs, and smooth synth layers.
You can find (and buy) this and other music pearls on the Bandcamp page of the label.
