Gotan Project Live Out November 18th On Ya Basta Records
Published November 11, 2008

The double album Gotan Project Live is the first live recording from electro-tango pioneers Gotan Project. Recorded at London's Kentish Town Forum and Neuchâtel, Switzerland, the album features material from their La Revancha Del Tango and Lunático world tours. Left-looking spinners Gilles Peterson, Thievery Corporation, Peter Kruder, UFO, Jazzanova, Rainer Trüby, Herbert and Mr. Scruff have all championed their fusion of tango, dub and beats since their debut single "El Capitalismo Foraneo" appeared in January 2000. Subsequently recording cover versions of the theme from Last Tango In Paris and a dubbed-out take on Frank Zappa's "Chunga's Revenge," Gotan Project have consistently pushed the boundaries of traditional tango, creating willfully weird but strangely compelling music that ignores both geographical and musical borders.

For those who, ten years ago, predicted that Gotan's success would be limited to coffee tables and catwalks, this live set comes with an ever elegant sting. The group have passed the test of the scene in proving that acoustic instrumentation and electronic programming can come together in an utter spectacle and, above all, stay faithful to the first demand of tango amateurs from the days of la Guardia Vieja: dance. Their performance plays with sight and sound to express their art's gift: memory and anticipation interlaced. Between today and tomorrow, this performance makes no choices - because desire, just like tango, is but the regret of the future.

Gotan Project embark on an exclusive European tour from La Revancha del Tango to Lunático, beginning November 27th.
