New Señor Coconut Album to Latinize Club Hits by Daft Punk, Prince, Others

posted by on September 25 at 17:13 PM

Señor Coconut, one of the many aliases held by the ridiculously chameleonic electronic-music producer producer Uwe Schmidt, is poised to release on Nov. 18 Around the World. On this album, Señor Coconut puts club hits by artists like Prince, Daft Punk, and, er, Trio, through the cha cha cha chingamajig. If past Schmidt Latinized cover-album concepts hold true, Around the World will be one of the few kitsch musical efforts worth a damn.

In other good news, Nacional Records will reissue the Chile-based German artist’s collection of clever, joyful, Kraftwerk covers en español, El Baile Alemán. Check out the sweet rendition of “Tour de France” below.

Yeah, it's already available for purchase.

Personally, I thought Fiesta Songs topped El Baile Aleman. Beat It is worth the price of the album alone.

Schmidt's song picks on Coconut Radio are also ridiculously cool. He's definitely put out some of the best party albums in the last few years...

Honestly, I'm kind of surprised to see this guy covered by the Stranger staff, but it is a welcome surprise!
