This one may stop you in your tracks.

Matias Aguayo has come up with the WTF? release of the year: his new album “Ay Ay Ay” is an a capella release on cooler-than-you German minimal electronic label, Kompakt. It shouldn’t work but, man, it does and how.

The Chilean producer’s vocal cords are the primary instrument on the album, though his beatboxing, humming, singing, chanting and sighing are tweaked and bleeped for maximum joy. Every tune, especially this one, is hugely infectious, playful and mesmerising. Sure, by this time next year, you’ll all be rollerskating the recession away.
