Interview with Emmanuel Horvilleur

The Argentine musician Emmanuel Horvilleur, who has just released his new solo album “Xavier”, considered that in the songs of this work he sought “that mixture of the sensual with the sensory and with the images”.

The plaque is also an invitation to get to know the musical universe of Horvilleur – including rock, reggae, funk and urban rhythms – under the prism of his personal label, with attention to detail, pristine sound and an absolutely contemporary dreamlike atmosphere.

After the impasse at IKV, Horvilleurreturned with “Xavier”, an album in which he ratifies his dominance of electro-pop dance with funky colors and other black rhythms.

In a time when Chinese Bandalos, Indians, Barco and others prevail on radio stations and digital stores, Horvilleur returns to remember that he was the one who patented that kind of music.

In the song “Welcome” he does it wisely mixing choirs of children reminiscent of African-style with the base formed by Mariano Domínguez on bass and Pablo González on drums, stripping a cool groove. While Matías Rada’s guitar draws all his influences from Stevie Wonder and Prince.

Always accompanied by the winner of several Grammy Rafa Arcaute as producer, Emma meets with her disciples Mendoza the You Sign Me for “Like a fish” that when the chorus arrives becomes one of the feats among Argentines of the most rendidores. Ema and the Mendocinos shine the track and the rankings because the song is very tasty.

Horvilleur spoke about his new work:

What mood did you have when you said, “I’m going to continue the album I left in 2010″?

EH:– The mood is actually always the same. I mean, obviously there was an end of cycle with IKV and I had this thing that didn’t have the inspiration to get into a studio to continue a record. I didn’t feel like that, I wanted to take my time, to look for it, to get the songs coming up, to live them. I also wanted to set up the band and start singing, that was what I intended in those days. I think I wasn’t wrong, that that process was good. Along with all this work of starting singing and assembling the band yes, I continued the album and making processes of getting into the studio with Rafa Arcaute and Didi Gutman. There is also a lot of interaction with the blues that I discovered with Andrés Cortés, the guitarist of Lo Pibitos, who is a skinny man who loves his guitaristic approach and also as an artist. And well, he plays guitar for instance in Ella Said No. Then also in Stage, which has a more rock-like shape. I naturally like a certain thing about blues, there’s a natural thing about that kind of music.

Do you live under some kind of pressure every time you pull out a record?

EH: – No. Always in my solo stage the last track I play is Radios and it is one of the tracks that surprises me, because it is a song that never changes, it is always in those same two chords. It’s a song that came to me one afternoon out of a weekend, you have no way of achieving those things. Then I get carried away by what I feel. Sometimes I do try to search for songs more up-tempo, as in this album Negra Monamour.

Did you have any special mood load when you started recording the record?

EH: Yes, obviously. There is a certain separation thing that is not me
