Album Review
Reviewed 2005-09-28
The renowned South African masters of a capella choral singing have been remixed with beats by world DJs. The result is a late night chillout club sound that blends these gorgeous voices with various sounds into a mostly mid/downtempo groove . Call me a purist, but I prefer them without the production. However, this should appeal to people who take exception to the term “elevator music.” And I’m in favor of anything that gets these guys an audience. Check out especially:

2. A cool midtempo groove w/great voices.
3. Warm and bright w/a nicely engaging perkiness
6. Starts slow, picks up. A sweet midtempo bounce.
7. A gently joyous sound. Midtempo.
8. Nature sounds & slow start into midtempo drum-rich track.
10. Sleepy peaceful song of rain. Steel drums, tres relaxed.
