CD Review: Ojos De Brujo Reworked

Various Artists
Ojos De Brujo Reworked
Urban World

Spearheaded by Al Lindrum, the music of Ojos De Brujo is reinvented, reworked, and rewired with the talents of a multitude of contributors, including Farrapo, George Vala, Empresarios, Makala, Suonho, Los Chicos Altos, Tony Seal, Duboffensive, and many others. Fans of Ojos De Brujo will be impressed with the jazzy, dub-ready, and dance-inflected compositions that have inspired musicians and listeners all over the world to create such beauty. The funky drum and bass, cumbia sounds, and dancehall song structures make the album shine with effervescent qualities. The vocals are Latin-esque and well-executed overall. The thirteen tracks span a wide cross-section of material, but in the end, Ojos De Brujo is the real winner here. The remixes are inventive and ear-catching. This is for the upbeat fan out there. ~ Matthew Forss
