    El Remolón nos presenta Pibe Cosmo, 12 tracks al ritmo de sus cumbias digitales y electro reggaetones, un disco que recorre desde los lugares mas fiesteros de la cumbia procesada con las artimañas del minimal techno hasta llegar a pequeñas canciones con melodías insuperables. Con la participación de Pablo Lescano, Ale Sergi, Fauna, Blitto y Vanesa Strauch.

    El disco sobrevuela las músicas que un pequeño pájaro mutante y bailarín (un hombre gorrión) puede absorber en su recorrido por los ritmos pegajosos del continente: se topa con un coro de niños guaraníes en la selva misionera (La Bonita), acuña un murguetón (o "mugretón", como define el artista a Escape, con la voz del salvaje Blitto), coloca un trance robótico e inteligente para bailar con altas llantas (Zapatillas galácticas) y entra clandestino a pegar flash en un barrio de casas de chapas ("Se fue a la villa", con la voz de Ale Sergi). Tampoco falta la joda para descontrolar: a puro microsampling de hitos de la cumbiamba local (DM$ GRT$ y Altos Cumbieros) y con los teclados cadenciosos de Pablo Lescano (en el refresh de Cumbia Bichera). Para bailar como embriagado y somnoliento, con ese talante que pueden generar un vaso de jarra loca o un flechazo de amor.

    El Remolón presents Pibe Cosmo, 12 rhythmic tracks of his signature digital cumbia and electro reggaeton. The record makes its way from party bangers to cumbia pushed through a minimal techno sieve, all the way to pretty pop melodies that stick in your head. With guests Pablo Lescano, Ale Sergi, Fauna, Blitto and Vanesa Strauch.
    The record takes flight, the mutant sparrow-man dancing to a swarm of keyboard birds, and along its journey it soaks up the sticky rhythms of South America. It stumbles on a chorus of Guarani children from the jungles of Misiones (La Bonita) and joins the parade of a marching band “murguetón” [marching band beat] (or "mugretón", [dirty beat] as defined by the artist in Escape, with gritty vocals by Blitto). It puts itself in a robotic, intelligent trance to dance to noisy tribal chant (Zapatillas galácticas) and it comes through a secret entrance to hit you over the head in a neighborhood of tin-roofed shacks ("Se fue a la villa," with vocals by Ale Sergi). The journey isn´t lacking in good times either. Samples of hits by local cumbia badboys Damas Gratis and Altos Cumbieros and the keyboard candences of Pablo Lescano (in the latest remix of Cumbia Bichera) keep you in a drunken, dancing stupor. The energy of songs that send you straight to jungle juice in a cup or to music-invoked ecstasy on the dancefloor.
