Following the success of the bands first release Nueva Musica (Billboard #1, Grammy Nomination for remix of ?rst single, IDMA Award for Best Latin Dance Song), The Latin Project comes straight at you with a superb set of brand new songs, AND a collection of stunning remixes. Stylistically evolving to include more mid-tempo material, the album raises the bar yet again for Latin Electronica.
The album features showcase performances by vocalists Freddie Crespo (veteran performer with Tito Puente, Joe Bataan, Charlie Palmieri); Debi Nova (Sergio Mendes, Sean Paul), Lonnie Jordan (from WAR), Mitchell Long (Sergio Mendes, Bill Summers), Joel Virgel, Lauren Evans, and rapper Kool Kojak (from Urban Legend).
The CD combines 8 original recordings with remixes The Latin Project have produced artists Bebel Gilberto, Incognito and Ceci Bastida, all put together in their unique tradition-meets-electronica approach of fat beats blended with live musicianship. Also included are remixes of their new material by genre heavy-weights Shawn Lee and Supreme Beings of Leisure.
