Señor Coconut, a German producer and DJ based in Santiago, Chile, originally burst onto the international music scene with this breakthrough album "El Baile Alemán". Nacional Records is releasing this classic Latin electronica tribute to electronica pioneers Kraftwerk for the first time digitally and re-issuing the CD to stores with bonus tracks.
Coconut programmed the entire album, transposing Kraftwerk byte-for-byte into a soundfield of maracas, congas, and vibes-a-go-go. ‘El Baile Alemán’ includes all the Kraftwerk hits with the stark percussion and effects of the originals replaced by Latin rhythms.
"I think that it's not just a covers album," Señor Coconut explains. “It also unveils quite a lot about the original compositions and their significance. Kraftwerk songs contain a strong musical content even if freed from their electronic arrangements. And I don't think the band is as serious as people think they are."
The new album “Around the World” features Daft Punk’s seminal track by the same name as the glue that holds the entire album together. Cocount takes the original song from the depths of a sweaty club and places it firmly in a Latin dancehall with a multi-layered sound of brass, double bass and an orchestra of drummers. “Sweet Dreams” is a take on the Eurythmics classic, with vocals by Señor Coconut's frontman Argenis Brito, a Venezuelan based in Berlin. Prince’s timeless hit “Kiss” is sung by the crooner Louie Austen, considered the “Viennese Frank Sinatra”.
