Abstract Latin Lounge IV by Abstract Latin Lounge IV

There are now as many "Lounge Compilation" CDs in the world as there are grains of sand on the Earth’s crust. We should figure out how to recycle these shiny plastic discs into a highly potent fuel source, or maybe a new flavor of bubble gum....

When that day comes, this new release from Nite Grooves is one compilation that I will probably hang onto. Zesty Latin House Music has never sounded so good, and this album is sure to put a warm summer groove in your soul. Taking off with a jazzy-hot, instrument filled track from Kiko called "Xel-Ha," we are immediately swept away in the cool waves of Abstract Latin Lounge IV. Vibrant Cuban/Latin House selections from Malena, John Beltran, and Kiko Nararro are paired with the sultry deep sounds of Harry Romero, Julius Papp, and Ivan Iacobucci/Black Shampu. Other selections include Anada Project’s "Horizons," Studio Apartment featuring Monique Bingham, and Stephanie Cook’s funk-Latin floor rocker "Rain (DF’s Rainforest Dub)."

If you need a soundtrack for your summer days, as well as accompaniment for those long, cool summer nights, I suggest trying this one on for size. It has those bumping jazzy/Latin grooves and fiery solos that will keep you moving no matter where the road takes you.
