Synopsis

Amazon.com
Of all forms of electronic music, breakbeat (alongside its cousins, electro and big beat) is the guiltiest pleasure; breaks are a surefire way to any dancer's feet. Mucho Macho is as guilty as the Chemical Brothers or Fatboy Slim at tugging at a listener's most base instincts. There's no highfalutin ideology or smart insider samples, just fat grooves wrapped around infectious, even corny midtempo breaks. Who cares if it's been done before--done better, even--by myriad others when the end result still accomplishes what every dance artist strives for: to make you dance. Heavy doses of hip-hop and funk inform the beats, which recall the pre- Fatboy era of acid-washed synths and erupting builds, bringing you back to the time when happy faces and glow sticks were an anomaly and not the de rigueur raver fashion choice. Ah, memories. --Tricia Romano
 

CD Reviews

A generous 3
omniscientfool | Beijing, China | 04/08/2000
(3 out of 5 stars)

"New electronica should not be so repetetive, and sound-spectrally-limited. There's always a good beat to keep one going, and the hooks are generally solid. Yet I often found myself thinking they stuck with them for just a few too many loops. There are still some inspriring tracks on here, but they scarcely eclipse mediocrity. Backstreet Love is a crime against humanity."
