El Guincho Touring North America

El Guincho Touring North America
When he’s not making his fantastic Tropicalia-inspired jams, El Guincho likes to take his show on the road. Thankfully, the Barcelona resident has announced a string of North American dates this fall. Kicking off in L.A. on November 20, the two-week tour will see him blessing Canada with dates in Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal before winding down the tour in New York.

In a recent interview with Exclaim!, El Guincho revealed that he will be employing live instrumentation, admitting that he’s bored of using just his sampler. "I’m trying to remix songs [for the live show],” he said. "They sound a bit cooler because I got a new synthesizer. I’m not bringing a sampler live with me anymore because I got bored of it… I’m going to bring my synthesizer, and I’m going to be using a mixer with a hard drive, so I’ll have the rhythm tracks. It’s like having a rhythm machine with you, but instead of just pressing play I’ll have this hard-drive. It’s kind of like an eight-track mixer. I’m bringing my friend to play bass parts on a sampler pad. That’s what El Guincho will be now.”

El Guincho’s fantastic Alegranza will finally see a domestic release via XL Recordings’ sister label Young Turks on October 7.
