When that day comes, this new release from Nite Grooves is one compilation that I will probably hang onto. Zesty Latin House Music has never sounded so good, and this album is sure to put a warm summer groove in your soul. Taking off with a jazzy-hot, instrument filled track from Kiko called "Xel-Ha," we are immediately swept away in the cool waves of Abstract Latin Lounge IV. Vibrant Cuban/Latin House selections from Malena, John Beltran, and Kiko Nararro are paired with the sultry deep sounds of Harry Romero, Julius Papp, and Ivan Iacobucci/Black Shampu. Other selections include Anada Project’s "Horizons," Studio Apartment featuring Monique Bingham, and Stephanie Cook’s funk-Latin floor rocker "Rain (DF’s Rainforest Dub)."
If you need a soundtrack for your summer days, as well as accompaniment for those long, cool summer nights, I suggest trying this one on for size. It has those bumping jazzy/Latin grooves and fiery solos that will keep you moving no matter where the road takes you.
