If you fancy something chilled out & relaxing but with some deep & sophisticated latin vibes check out Mettle Music's first release in their new 'Vibes' series of CD compilations (future 'Vibes' to include jazz, disco funk etc). "Latin Vibes: Lounge Selection" reflects and collects on an array of production talent from some of the worlds coolest labels including, HiTop, Lovemonk, Papa & Freerange as well as introducing 14 (yes 14!) previously unreleased tracks making it a must have for both the sophisticated music fan & DJ alike.
The album is an intriguing exploration of how the many forms of latin music have subtly infiltrated the consciousness of so many of today's contemporary producers representing the new, sophisticated tastes of a wider audience. A perfect accompaniment to the poolside, beach or barbeque, this classy selection incorporates a wonderful balance of style & substance where the traditional rhythms of Latin America blend smoothly with cutting edge contemporary production values and soulful musicality, taking you on a smooth evocative sun drenched trip from Rio to Madrid and back, all from the cool and comfort of your convertible...
To help get you in the 'Latin Vibe' the label are offering four tracks from the album as free digital downloads.
