Review

Since launching earlier this year, Manana Records seems to have specialized in cross-cultural collaborations. The label's latest album release offers more of the same, with globally focused producers Sound Species joining forces with Ache Meyi, a four-piece outfit from Santiago de Cuba. The resultant album not only joins the dots between the past and the present - traditional folkloric percussion blended with contemporary dancefloor rhythms - but also organic and electronic instrumentation. It's a blend that works well, with Sound Species expertly crafting their synths and drum machines to the dense percussion and Afro-Haitian vocals of Ache Meyi. There's plenty of floor-friendly material to be found throughout, but also occasional trips into dreamy downtempo territory.
