Peterson returns to Havana to continue where he left us five years ago. This time the focus is placed squarely on the rumba, it's many variations, mutations and relationship with other musical forms. Complete with a documentary, sample pack and full remix album, it's another unique international bounty. Here are two examples of its hip-shaking magic: Motor City Drum Ensemble anchors the rumba down with a stately 4/4 allowing the sensation come through the keys, bass and insistent percussion. Max Graef and Glenn Astro celebrate the weird in "Weird Melody" with a stuttering kicks and wavey synth washes that keep their own sense of tempo.
