Don the Tigeris the solo project of Adrián de Alfonso, a ubiquitous presence in Barcelona's underground until recently. Having relocated to Berlin, Don The Tiger now takes inspiration from everything he misses in that city - be it rumba, MPB, baroque fantasy, guabina, flamenco or Fania Records- and mixes it with musique concrète and elaborate sampling techniques, delivering it all in a way that owes more to primitive rock'n'roll than to anything else.
Described by Don The Tiger as “a dive into melodic exuberance after years of experimental music-making”, “Matanzas” is his second album to date.
