Mexico to Jamaica

June 13th, 2017 · Posted by Skuds in Music · No Comments · Music

Somehow this managed to escape my attention when it came out last month, but Ozomatli have a new album out (Spotify) called Non-Stop: Mexico to Jamaica.

About ten years ago, Ozomatli started getting a bit of a reputation as one of the best live acts in the world, with a lively mixture of Mexican-flavoured Latin and hip-hop. As if that wasn’t catchy enough they have now taken the latin/hip hop mix,  added reggae to it, got Sly & Robbie to produce it, and roped in more guest artists than on a Santana album.

On top of all that, one of the tracks is a cover of Land of 1000 Dances, already one of the catchiest songs ever. Completely recommended for steaming through headphones at work.
