CD REVIEW: Nacho Sotomayor - La Roca vol. 2
By Ben Ohmart - 05/21/2007 - 10:34 AM EDT

Artist: Band: Nacho Sotomayor
Genre: New Age
CD Review:
Why do I love Nacho's? Let me count the ways. 1. This latest hour-long trip of his has moved in to beat the preceding volume, exploring the cross-over section of the world much better than something labeled simply new age. Dance to tracks like 'Don't Do Anything', and feel the year 2000 finally coming for you. Space age music at times mixed with the dirt of the dance floor, and sometimes a compound of the moaning cries of the jungle and electronic hydraulics. 2. Yes, it mixes the old and new, many times in the same musical second, enveloping the listener and licking the flap shut. 3. Except for 'Dreaming', which poeticizes the theme of the 13 song cd, it's all instrumental, always diverse, always interesting. Easy to see why this is on a major label. 'words are superfluous / in the same way that there is only one silence / the essence of this expression is also unique / everything is related.' A good collection of music for beginning a dream, and carrying it through to sunrise.
