|El Guincho - Hiperasia|
Born Pablo Díaz-Reixa in the Canary Islands, the Spanish-owned archipelago off the coast of Northwestern Africa, El Guincho found indie blog fame in early 2008, shortly after the release of his album Alegranza (which came out in December of the previous year), which coincided nicely with his North American debut performance in Austin, TX, at the SXSW festival. At age 14, Díaz-Reixa left his home for Continental Europe to focus on a career in sports, but when that didn't work out, he moved to Barcelona, where he played drums in various bands, including Coconut with his guitar-playing cousin.

"Hiperasia" is best described as a sonically animated adventure with an abrupt, almost violent, enhanced, futuristic sound. Lead single "Comix" featuring vocals from Mala Rodriguez is a perfect example of this.
To coincide with the album's release, El Guincho and creative duo Wellness have collaborated to create the Hiperasia Collection, an initial launch of wristbands and sweatshirts that connects its users to a secret universe with exclusive content hosted especially for fans.
