Gotan Project give new meaning to the term French Dance Music with their debut La Revancha Del Tango. A collaboration between soundtrack composers Philippe Cohen Solal and Christophe Mueller and Argentinean guitarist Eduardo Makaroff, the Gotan project project are more about Tangos and accordions than chic disco-house and vocoders. And while the Parisian trio's debut is unlikely to set any superclub dance floors alight, it's unique, bewitching and incredibly French. Part ingenious dance hybrid, part spine-tingling soundtrack, the success of their peculiar mix of strident break-beats, eerie violins and those all-important accordions owes no small debut to Solal & Mueller's cinematic expertise. Exuding enchanting-chilling atmosphere, tracks play out like a sensual score to the nocturnal life of Paris' Latin Quarter. The longing melody of "Queremos Paz" and the jazzy "Last Tango in Paris" are pure romance, and the frantic Latin rhythms of the only real club contender, "Triptico", conjure the hectic café society, but most affecting are the backstreet sleazy of Epoca and swagger of "Chunga's Revenge"; both as hypnotic as they are sinister. Strange amalgams of dub bass and unhinged cabaret vocals add to Gotan Project's allure, but it's the passion and drama that mesmerise, and no dance music has more of both than a Tango. --Dan Gennoe

Having recently bought the delicious Bajafondo Tango Club album (strongly recommended), I'm developing a taste for modern updates on the tango theme. Gotan project was the next logical step in the chain, and I'm not disappointed in the slightest by this cool, seductive dance music that sends a shiver down your spine. Take the original version without remixed bonus tracks and what you have is nigh on perfect late-night music for chilling out or romancing in warm weather.
Subtle blending of electronics, the traditional instruments for creating a tango tempo (eg. bandoneon - related to the accordian - violin and piano) and the creamy, passionate voice of Christina Vilallonga works brilliantly. You will not be disappointed!

A friend came over my house around Christmas ranting and raving about his latest CD. We tend to compare music we've bought but here was something very different. He also bought over Mondo Grosso's MG4 which I already own and highly recommend.
From the moment that the first track went down I knew that I had to own it. Lo and behold a few weeks later I am now the proud owner of this exquisite "one of the best of 2001" CD. I didn't think that you could revitalise tango music in this way. It is not just that it is the intricate beats and the various other influences thrown in to make this something every serious collector SHOULD HAVE IN THEIR COLLECTION!!
BUY IT YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED......

Actually, you have probably heard this album already; you just don't know it. The slick techno-dub tango beats and silky alto of Cristina Vilallonga is the sort of music that floats around London's coffee shops while you're dipping your nose in cappuccino froth and chilling out.
Just like Favela Chic, Gotan Project is a French take on Latin-American rhythm - though in contrast to Favela, La Revancha del Tango is more Parisian lounge than Argentinean dance, more Serge Gainsbourg than Susana Rinaldi. It offers none of the melodramatic desperation of traditional tango, in spite of a plaintive accordion and film-noir backdrop, crafting rather the cool moodiness of a Massive Attack CD.
It's too polished to be truly sexy, but by tapping into a growing demand for music from outside the Anglo-Saxon pop world, it still offers something new and kind of exciting. So what if it won't take you to the seedy glamour of Buenos Aires? At least you'll get to go to the Latin Quarter in Paris.

Format: Audio CD
The name says it all - "Gotan" is a twist on "tango", the dance that's famed as "the vertical expression of a horizontal desire. Gotan takes the distinctive sound of the Buenos Aires squeezebox or bandoneon, plus violin plus the basic "slooow, sloooow, quick-quick sloooow" pulse and the sultry attitude of the tango, overlays loping bass'n'drums'n'dub and filters the whole mix through a witty Parisian post-modern sensibility.
It's slinky, seductive and very addictive.
And provocative. The opening track "Queremos paz" (We want peace) samples Che Guevara's 1964 address to the UN General Assembly and "El Capitalismo Foraneo" (Foreign Capitalism) echoes with the ghostly presence of Evita Peron. There are cool reworks of Zappa's piece "Chunga's Revenge" and Gato Barbieri's theme for the movie "Last Tango in Paris".
It's lounge, it's mellow, it's sexy and it has just the right edge of sweet Argentinean sadness.

Like one of the previous reviewers, I first heard this excellent group playing live on "Later with Jools Holland". Gotan is an incredibly apt name for this outfit; they haven't only mixed up the word 'tango' but have taken the musical genre out of the ballroom and fermented the rhythms with everything from dub to breakbeats and strings as well as the all-important accordion sound. I defy anyone to be disappointed in this album.

I cannot recommend this album enough. To those who have slated it in the reviews please bare in mind the literal translation of the the work and the the artists name. Of course its not Tango. Its Better.

For someone new to tango music, I have been really impressed with this album. I liked it so much I went to see them live in May. The beat gives you a wonderful feeling - it is fantastic music to have on when friends are round. I would recomend that you buy it - I guarantee you'll love it!
