This week on Alt.Latino, we are laid-back — cool as can be. The music we're bringing you is mellow and relaxed yet engaging, with smooth new tracks from Spanish rapper Mala Rodriguez, New York DJ Chico Mann and more. We also feature French DJs who are vinyl archaeologists: They've fallen in love with Latin-American music and are now on an endless quest to dig up the best old records buried across the continent.

Join us — and, as always, let us know what music you want to hear when you're in the mood to kick off your shoes and float away.

————————————————————————————————————————-

Esta semana en Alt.Latino estamos tranquilos, sin preocupaciones. La música que compartimos con ustedes es suave y serena, pero hipnotizante. Así es lo nuevo de la rapera española Mala Rodríguez, y el estreno del DJ neoyorquino Chico Mann. También les presentamos lo nuevo de varios DJ franceses que son algo así como arqueólogos del vinilo: tras enamorarse de la música latinoamericana, se lanzaron en busca de antiguos discos a lo largo y ancho del continente, para desenterrar, desempolvar, y remixear.

Como siempre, queremos saber de ustedes. ¿Qué escuchan cuando están de humor para desentenderse de la vida cotidiana, cerrar los ojos, y flotar a otro mundo?
