VÍCTOR-MANUELLE-comienza-el-2015-con-pie-derecho

La semana de pasada en la Singles Jukebox, escribimos sobre Victor Manuelle y su electro-salsa canción “Que Suenen Los Tambores.” ¡Nos gustó! ¡Pero nos hizo cansado! Sobre todo si se escucha al versión más rápido y, como Madeleine Lee, empieza a bailar alrededor de su cocina (en la luz del refrigerador?)… ay. Cuidado.

Sin embargo, VALE LA PENA. Escribí:

Incorporating the traditional “Sister Havana” chord changes, the latest tropical (and sort of topical) #1 from Bronx native Manuelle is a cover of Cuban singer Laritza Bacallao. Manuelle’s version seems to accelerate as it rolls along, bulging with more cool electro-salsa effects and backup vocal parts the further it goes. Something new crops up every moment; listening to it may be as exhilarating and exhausting as dancing. Yet Manuelle counsels patient resistance and claims in the first verse, “No se trata de velocidad.” Hurry up and relax. There’s no time to lose; we could have a holiday.
