This is not a joke: the trio, which is showered with awards, is still as famous in Chile as the Beatles are in England! Already in 2001 he had given his voice to the club hit "I'm Not A Sound" by the German perfectionist Sieg über die Sonne consisting of Dandy Jack and Tobias Freund. In the following years he was taking on the vocal parts with producers like Ricardo Villalobos, Senor Coconut and Dinky, among informal and heavy usage of his vocal tracks among the minimal crew. Jorge González and Loreto Otero began composing music and writing lyrics in the summer of 2006 after Los Prisioneros had broken up. They moved from Chile to Mexico City where the electronic music scene is highly open and active. There they continued to pursue their interest in dance music and started a new musical endeavor - the dance-intense electronic project Los Updates. The centerpiece of the music of Los Updates is González vocals and obliquely narrative lyrics, veering between singing and speaking, and the melodic themes shifting gradually from pop to modern songwriting and back again.

This way every statement is manoeuvred skillfully and accurately to the comprehension of the listener. Read more on Last.fm.
