Ceci Bastida – Controlar [2011]

I caught Ceci’s performance at the Hollywood Bowl for KCRW’s Global Soul and for me it was one of the best performances of the evening. This being the standout track for me, its a ridiculously catchy electro fused pop track that is propelled along completely by Ceci’s vocal talent. Of course, being sung entirely in Spanish helps, its got this filthy electro feel to it with a ridiculously catchy set of riffs that will have you nodding and humming the track for hours afterwards.

From Her Bio Page
Her collaboration with DJ and producer XXXChange (Spank Rock, Amanda Blank), “Controlar,” became an internet hit after being picked up by TheFader.com and Rcrdlabl.com. She was also featured on “S.O.S.,” a duet with rapper Pigeon John and the Mad Decent approved Israeli hip hop crew Soulico.

Her live shows, beloved for their unique covers of Kanye West, Miike Snow, and The Clash, have won her critical praise and packed houses, from L.A. to Mexico City to New York City (The New York Times featured her July 2009 performance in a special photo spread on new Latin music).

Her debut comes in the wake of Ceci’s acclaimed pair of performances at 2009’s SXSW Music Festival, where she played a Billboard showcase and shared the stage with Jason Lytle, The Low Anthem, and Fanfarlo. She earned rave reviews and was named one of “The Top 21 Performances at SXSW.”
