Very interesting album! Though not my favorite engineer, Mad Professor is up there with Scientist and Prince Jammy in my opinion. Here, he tackles a distant cousin of reggae, South American samba.

The original style provides lots of opportunity to bend, and Mad Professor puts a great spin on the sound! Procussion in particular jingles and bubbles just as you would like it to sparkle in a dub. As expected, the rhythims come out and are highlighted to entrance. There are a lot of spanish vocals which are echoed sparingly. Overall, this is a delightful record. Surprising and satisfying.
