The French remix team behind the Gotan Project found much success, including a BBC World Music award, with their debut, La Revancha del Tango, which gave Argentina's signature dance an electronica makeover. The fusion was inevitable, as tango's avant-gardist tendencies and noir moods lend themselves well to this kind of update. If the "tango assassin," Astor Piazzolla, were alive and pursuing his mission to modernize the music, he'd doubtless be experimenting with bleeps and beats. The breadth of this ferment is felt on the Gotan's second full-length release, an album of remixes by the trio and from their admirers, including Thomas Kruder and the indie soundtracks band Calexico. They also pay homage to Piazzolla with a version of his "Cité Tango" and deconstruct a Chet Baker solo from "Round About Midnight." A bonus disc features a new song by the band and a 10-minute video by Prisca Lobjoy, a frequent collaborator. Unlike the sustained mood of their debut, the mix-tape feel of this collection delivers an intimate journey, away from the dance floor (at least some of the time) into the darkest quarters of the listener's mind.
