The payoff: a crossbreed of acid jazz, ambient, lounge, trip hop and house with latin rythm and flair. This is the sound of Mexico right now"

"MEXICO CITY'S SR. MANDRIL LIVES UP TO ITS DISTRICT'S NEW GLOBAL REPUTATION, it's no wonder Sr Mandril was a huge hit at Montreal's Jazz Fest in 2006-these guys thrive on improvisation. On any given track, one can expect to hear a new amalgam...” XLR8R MAG
