A Real Music Video — NSFW El Guincho: Bombay

Tuesday, September 28th, 2010

Finally a music video that encompasses everything a music video should; sparkles, water, a fat man, a crow, girls, girls, girls, 70’s filter, a bit of science and a really good song. The video is actually a trailer for a film, called Bombay, directed by Nicolás Méndez. This is El Guincho’s, aka Pablo Díaz-Reixa, second album, “Pop Negro” which he mixed with Jon Gass (Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston), released by Young Turks / XL Recordings (The xx).  El Gincho grew up on the Canary Isles, the Spanish-owned archipelago off the coast of Northwestern Africa; starved for 80’s pop culture and later found a talent for music while in Paris and Barcelona. He describes his music as a kind of “space-age exotica”.
