Alegranza!, the debut record from Mallorcan sampler El Guincho was without doubt one of the best albums of 2008, like Animal Collective with a sun-tan, it was the anthem to my summer. Imagine my excitement when I heard (courtesy of pitchfork) that Young Turks, the label which put the LP out are releasing not one, not two, not three, but FOUR remix EPs based on Alegranza!. Thats not even the best part. The remixes focus on just two songs from the album: Kalise and Antillas – thats right, two EPs for each song. There is also talk of Diplo’s ‘Mad Decent’ label having a hand in all of it.The first two EPs will be available on 12″ vinyl and via download from November 23rd. Until then here’s the original Kalise from 2007 for your nostalgic delectation.
Only 217 days until summer!
