Electrotango is back with some fresh grooves and a charming singer. Most of the 11 dance tracks we hear on this 34 minute album were written by singer Lilí Gardés and her producer Osi Tejerina (musical director, programming and piano). The melodies are suited to sing along and the grooves invite the dancers to the dance floor. “Abrazame y bailemos” (by Lilí Gardés and Osi Tejerina) is a nice slow waltz with guitar by Nahuel Santos and bandoneon licks by Rubén Slonimsky. “Tormento” (written by Charlo / P. Ruiz) is a radio-compatible off-beat track which should attract also those who don´t care about tango at all. In fact, all of these songs are flavoured with bandoneon licks which bridge to the old tango tradition and are backed by modern grooves for today´s generation - and live by the ambivalence that they please several fractions of the dancers, even the old ones are invited. Nevertheless, “Ay Corazon” will be deleted from my song list as I am distracted by it´s pitchy chorus vocals. As starters I would recommend track #1 “Arrabal” with it´s cheerfully milonga-samba groove, and then track #2 "Acostumbrarse no es bueno" which is a great groove-oriented pop song with bandoneon solo - both are difficult to resist starting dancing.
