Following Federico Aubele's Amatoria, ESL Music presents six remixes of the Argentine master of tango tranquilo. Feathery guitar lines, hushed he/she vocals and wheezing bandoneon are folded into dubby, downbeat grooves on the majority of the mixes here, staying true to ESL's classily chilled mandate. But there's a surprise in the form of "Suena Mi Guitarra (Son of Kick Remix)," which chops up samples over turbo-charged, electro-house beats. If you ever wondered what Manu Chao might sound like as remixed by the Crookers, now you know.
