      CHOCOLATE CON AJÍ (Chocolate with chili):14 stunning tracks do great justice to this album’s name, combining the sweetness of chocolate with the spicy edge of chili. Fiery, surrealistic, and sometimes just a little racy, Daniel Puente Encina masters a range of styles with graceful ease. Rousing orchestral arrangements of Latin music, furious Boogaloo-Blues, surrealistic 70s Rock and 60s Latin Soul alternate with Indie-pop. Chocolate con Ají connects genres as different as blues, rock, hip-hop, rebel tango, samba and even South American folk.

      Daniel Puente Encina: "my new album is a kind of personal “Best of”, a compilation of my favourite (and previously unpublished) numbers featuring a wide variety of styles, including South American music, Latin Rhythm ’n’ Blues and Caribbean beats in complete harmony."

      The high-quality digipack includes a faux vinyl CD and a 32-page booklet with the lyrics in English and Spanish and very personal photos.

      • 1. Never choose the Devil: a boogaloo-blues about the timeless conflicts of a deeply religious sinner gripped by lust.
      • 2. El gato y el ratón - Cat and mouse: political Latin hip-hop about immigration and police corruption.
      • 3. Shot down on the dance floor: how to die in the Bronx’s red light district. 60's swinging London meets Nuyorican boogaloo.
      • 4. Coolhunter: Sex sells. funky soul rock about marketing strategies.
      • 5. Eat my Soul: a romantic indie-pop ballad with a stunning son climax.
      • 6. Freire: A celebratory rural song of working-class love. Or how to keep your balance at more than 2,000 metres in the mountains, with too little oxygen and too much booze in your system.
      • 7. Siluetas: unconventional existential rebel tango, or how to suffer from so much humanity
      • 8. Ascensión: poetic, dreamy 70s rock with a Nuyorican touch.
      • 9. San Antonio: Dixie-country-ska. A celebration of dance and love set to lindy hop choreography.
      • 10. Rata de Campo - Country rat : an urban poem. The odyssey of a country rat lost in the big city.
      • 11. Love in Exchange: a 50s-style love song about broken hearts.
      • 12. En el Centro - What it's all about: anti-capitalist samba funk.
      • 13. Odd desire: killer jealousy blues. When love hurts, you want to kill the pain.
      • 14. Mañana no es otro día, es otro lugar - tomorrow is not another day, it‘s another place: The slow, surrealist swing of an escapist. The unstoppable and absurd desire to keep on running (away), even when teetering on the edge of the precipice.
