Format:Audio CD
Federico Aubele was born and raised in Argentina, and while he is inescapably influenced by the musical traditions of his homeland, he has been inspired and affected by the many other places he has been.
He has lived in New York, Barcelona, and Berlin, and his sound is at least as well-traveled as he is, synthesizing dub reggae, ambient electronica, and Spanish guitar into elaborately textured music that is easily recognizable as his own.
He moved to Berlin in 2001, during the Argentine Crisis. It would seem, on the surface, to be a project dedicated to the German city, but it ends up being his most eclectic album to date.
"On his fourth album, Argentine guitarist and songwriter Federico Aubele takes both the production and mixing reins for the first time.
The title - "Berlin 13" - refers to the two-year period he spent living in the German city after leaving Buenos Aries, and to the thirteenth card in the Major Arcana of the tarot: Death.
"Berlin 13" is also significant for Aubele because it glues together the various strengths he's displayed on his previous recordings without their excesses or missteps.
There are the big, bass-heavy beats and loops that made 2004's "Gran Hotel Buenos Aries" stand out, the delicate, spidery, near-virtuosic nylon-string guitar lines that evoke tango, fado, flamenco, and jazz that have appeared on all of his records; there's the songwriter's gift for intimacy, subtlety, and melody from 2007's "Panamericana", and the ambitious genre melding, atmospheric evocations of other world music traditions from 2009's "Amatoria".
The set kicks off dubwise with "Berlin". A DJ's scratch beat, a bubbling bassline, and Aubele's otherworldly melodica accompany his guitar as swirling synths pan the channels à la Lee Perry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Return of the Suave 11 April 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have been a fan of this gentleman ever since his debut effort Gran Hotel Buenos Aries - back in 2003. Even though I can't understand a word of Spanish, Federico Aubele's music has always succeeded in striking an emotional chord with me and that should be the point of music right? Well on Berlin, he does attempt some songs in English - the intensity of the tracks, the sheer quality of the music and the atmosheric effects are all in place. It's a quality album to chill out to, a great album to introduce your friends to...great for late summer evenings, dinner parties or cold ones round the barbeque...BUY IT!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect. 30 Mar 2011

Back to the same sounds as his first two albums, Federico kills it on this record. More dubed out then his previous efforts and a bit more electronic. Perfect from beginning to end.
5.0 out of 5 stars Federico Aubele ‎- Berlin 13 11 Sep 2013
By scoundrel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
BERLIN 13 sees Federico Aubele extending his reach even more internationally. Though "Berlin" still has Spanish lyrics and Argentinian guitar strumming layered over dub beats, you can hear something new brewing. Things come to a head with the gorgeous "Bohemian Rhapsody in Blue," which introduces some gypsy elements as well as a glitchy guitar into a melancholy atmosphere. Aubele also delves more into house rhythms: "In Your Name" has a solid 4/4 and a spacy, almost campy background, though Aubele's vocals keep things centered, while "Kreuzberg" wavers somewhere between the dancefloor and outer space. The slow "Lágrimas Viejas" is dreamy and ephemeral, while the reverb-laced "13" puts in a slightly harder thump. The more abstract "El Miedo" closes out the album on a solid note, making for a mysterious and thoroughly fascinating listen.

1.0 out of 5 stars awful 27 Aug 2011
By nicolas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
doesn't the guy get it? he sings awfully, terribly bad, false, it's ridiculous. i didn't buy anything more after panamericana. stick to the girls (or better male singers), and to the music (and let that evolve), what u do best, mr aubele. but please someone tell him he should stay away from the microphone. don't the guys from TC/ESL notice it?
