Following last year’s much-acclaimed solo album “Mondo Alterado” (Hippie Dance 08), original pachanga boy and hippie dance mentor REBOLLEDO returns to the limelight with the jam-packed MONDO RE-ALTERADO (Hippie Dance 10), tapping into his vast and varied network of friends and fellow soundsmiths. Artists such as SUPERPITCHER, DJ TENNIS, MACEO PLEX, RED AXES, FANGO or FANTASTIC TWINS deliver stunning takes on Rebolledos’ unique signature sound, creating a full suite of exclusive remixes, cover versions and reinterpretations. From the super-energetic club rumblings of MACEO PLEX’s DISCOTICO PLEXICO to DJ TENNIS’ dreamy PIMIENTO DRIVE VERSION of A NUMB GAS TO THE FUTURE or FANTASTIC TWINS’ party bomb FANTASTIC POW POW, the journey through MONDO RE-ALTERADO is full of twists and turns – a world where an epic, cinematic soundscape such as SUPERPICHER’s RAINBOY SUPER SPACE sits comfortably alongside the claustrophobic, punishing banger that FANGO sculpted from stand-out cut “Pow Pow”. Meanwhile, RED AXES turn the casual narrative of “Life Is Strange, Life Is Hard, Life Is Great” into a bouncing workout – a great companion piece to WANT, DANNY DAZE and SHOKH’s propulsive, jagged dub version of “Fears Come True”. Other highlights include Jörg Burger aka THE BLACK FRAME with the lush BLACK RAINBOW WOMAN, PAULOR’s country rock extravaganza DISCOTICO DESERTICO and not one, but two excellent contributions from former Italians Do It Better honcho MIKE SIMONETTI. It’s a magical, surprising ride that finds beauty in contrasts – while staying tuned to REBOLLEDO’s spirit of adventure and powerful sense of style.
