Jorge Cortes has a rock solid track record when it comes to producing attractive, occasionally minimalist deep house, so you'd expect this first appearance on Dutch label Dopeness Galore to be rather good. It is, of course, delivering eight attractive and musically rich cuts that various draw inspiration from the likes of Rick Wade, DJ Sprinkles and, perhaps more surprisingly, Ricardo VIllalbos (see the Chilean percussion and ultra-deep grooves of "Shake". Perhaps the most impressive aspect of the album is the producer's ability to strike a balance between melodious jazziness and darker, more forthright material. For proof, compare and contrast the jazzy, dexterous deepness of skewed-but jazzy closer "Refugees Welcome" (or, for that matter, the ultra-deep "En Espiritu") with the bustling, soul-flecked drum machine weird-out "Dando Notas".
