For DJs enthused by the world of South American music - be it the tango of Argentina, Cuban mambo or Brazilian samba - there's much to enjoy on this EP. With the aid of a string of remixers, Los Chicos Altos have successfully fused the past and the present, combining traditional styles with contemporary beats. All of the seven tracks are worth a loook, from the skanking, slo-mo calypso-house of Azaxx's "Se Va Mamba", to the Nuyorican Soul-ish Stereo 77 rework of "Jose Antonio". Perhaps the standout track, though, is the carnival-friendly cambia of "Senora Santara" as remixed by Idan K and the Movement of Rhythm. Heavy? You bet.
