REVIEWS


A super-smooth blend of downtempo cool that hits its stride halfway through - and not an "ay-yi-yi" in earshot.

Rupert Bottenberg (Montreal Mirror)

Winners of the Best compilation of 2004 on Festival Quartz Electroniques in France, the artists from discos Konfort together with THE LOUNGE KING (Mix 96 Canada - Luxuriamusic.com and Ibero radio 90.9 Fm Mexico) bring to us another face of Mexico: Its new sound. Mexico has a history full of color, music and magic and is usually associated with Mariachis, sombreros, cactus, and tequila. Yet, a new generation of innovative Mexican artists is changing the face of music associated with Mexico. An example of the creative energy coming from Mexico is this exquisite selection representing the New Sound that comes from this one-of-a-kind country. Viva Mexico!
