This Argentinean deejay made his name updating tango for the dance music generation. But Aubele grew dissatisfied with his own formula and Amatoria, his third release, marks his biggest departure yet from the sound that made him famous. Inspired by classic tangos and boleros, featuring mainly guitar, voice and various female collaborators (Miho Hatori and Sabina Sciubba among them), the album is a languid excursion into love and sensuality. But what envelops you at the start may dismay you by the end: a master of atmosphere, Aubele has yet to master the art of penning distinct melodies.
