Description
This divertingly arch, multi-kulti hodge-podge plays like a soundtrack for an imaginary Latin nightclub with a selectively demented door policy. The essence of Sergio Mendes trips in first, trailed by a rap that emerges from under a '70s disco conceit swathed in silky choirs and cheesy synths. Brazilian Tropicalismo via Caetano Veloso bumps butts with a naive pop organ riff that London hipsters circa 1968 would recognize, until the congas lash out and the whole thing turns into vintage Santana.

"[Los Amigos Invisibles] has taken the rhythmic sass in salsa, the bass-heavy fun in funk, and even the note-bending bile in acid-jazz, and mixed it all up to produce an infectious beat. [They] have put the joy back into dancing, sending a warm current into the cold alienating waters of industrial strength techno."
