Paul A George (Tijuana Cartel) 'Last Dance’ album launch tour w/ Migret at Baroque Room

By fusion boutique
Posted: 12 May 2024
Paul A. George is the guitarist/singer/producer for Tijuana Cartel.
He makes music to move to, music to meditate to too. Inspired from a world of music and a home in the Australian rainforest. Paul has had a wide ranging experience of musicality. From living in India and studying sitar, to training his fingers in the south of Spain to the intricate rhythms of flamenco.
His multicultural approach towards playing the guitar and his healthy appetite for deep bassy grooves are important factors for the magic of Paul A. George. 
Desert Sounds, Flamenco guitars, Organic House, Down-Tempo.
From the front man of Australian band Tijuana Cartel, these deeper rainforest inspired beats are aimed to induce a soulful, intuitive exploration of dance and electronica.
 
"If Sunday afternoon had an ultimate soundtrack, it would be Tijuana Cartel’s Paul A George and his spellbinding acoustic guitar, taking our final day in paradise to new frontiers, wrapped in an emotional, star studded blanket of wild west meets deep house.’ Melbourne Royalty
 
‘Guitar and synthesiser grow around each other organically, sprouting magnificent sonic flowers, their sound colours complementing each other with natural perfection. The beat underneath throbs along in an unobtrusive, yet highly propulsive groove.’ Acker Records
 
“Last Dance,” isn’t a dirge, it’s a fiesta. Flamenco strings duel with pulsating electronica, conjuring Tulum sunsets and desert mirages in equal measure. Flamenco bleeds into cumbia, house thumps into ancient rhythms – a seasoned nomad weaving sonic tapestries across continents.
“It’s a culmination of all the things I love, and bleed together in a way that could move a crowd, or let someone get lost in a set of headphones,” says George. “I’ve got rooms full of old synths and guitars. I felt comfortable attaching myself to all of them at some stage of the album.”
 
Special Guests Blue Mountains based Migret an indie-electronica duo who make intimate compositions with dreamy pop vocals that are emotionally resonant and add a layer of ethereal beauty - all wrapped in a cinematic soundscape atmosphere with guitar delays, ambient synths and minimalist sequences, will be opening the night.
Formed in 2019, the band is made up of Argentinan-born couple Betsy and Fran. Their first studio album entitled “Un monton de casas” was released independently by the band (currently sold out).
 
The result would be “Un montón de casas”, an EP of subtle compositions. With a delicate voice that does not elude emotionality, they sing about airports, boats that go nowhere and old notebooks that burn. All wrapped in an intimate atmosphere with guitar delays, synthesizers and minimalist programming.” – diario contexto
“Migret generates ethereal atmospheres, quite close to those sketched by post-rock bands like Explosions In The Sky, but it does it in a much more emotional tune and with the protagonism of a female voice that tells stories of misunderstandings and proposes a charming and accurate ambient pop.” – indie hoy
