Awards & Reviews

‘Gleeful, manic ... deliriously carefree.’

‘His beats bob between the lurching rhythms of the LA beat scene, the snap of dancehall and reggaetón, and the shuddering, double-time pulses of jungle and footwork. ’


Self-described purveyor of ‘space-age exotica’ El Guincho incorporates Afrobeat, dub, rock and tropicalia to create an intoxicating, danceable sound that screams piña coladas, sunsets and summer abandon.

A Spaniard with a penchant for wild beats, El Guincho provides the ideal soundtrack for a sultry Saturday of bossa nova pomp and calypso shimmer.

Add to the mix, Northern Territory mob Skinnyfish Sound System and there’s no denying the potential for a world beat fiesta. Warming the stage with their remixed Indigenous tunes – featuring live MCs, didgeridoo and Sietta’s James Mangohig throwing the beats – Skinnyfish Sound System are a revelation in Australiana, providing a new context for some of this country’s most exquisite and original sounds.
