By the end of 2001, after studying music in New York, Martin Delgado returns to Argentina with the idea of experimenting in the fusion of electronic music, tango and jazz. With this in mind, he processes several demos in his studio and decides to look for other musicians to form San Telmo Lounge. During 2002, he meets the electronic music producer Juan Manuel Aguirre, who produces two remixes for the project, and verifying the result they both obtain as a group, he joins San Telmo Lounge as a permanent member in charge of the electronic production and the recording of the disc. About the middle of 2003, they call Julia Peralta to play the bandoneon sections, essential part of San Telmo Lounge sound aim. In September 2003, after signing a contract with the label EPSA, they successfully launch their first EP "McDougall Tango" in a mega event at Abasto shopping mall in the city of Buenos Aires. During 2004 they make presentations in several places, such as the VI Buenos Aires Tango Festival and different commercial events. In the middle of 2004, after Julia Peralta leaves the group, the bandoneon player Pablo Gaitan joins them, with whom they record the full record "Madrugada en Backcelonia". This material, brought out all over the country and outside it by Epsa Music in February 2005, makes them one of the main references of the electrotango move both national and internationally.

This material published by Epsa Music continues to propose the fusion of tango with different subgenres from the "rock" and the electronics, showing a great composition and performance soundness and receiving the praises of the specialized press and the public in general.
