Welcome to the Ritmo Machine
Released: Nov 2011
Label: Nacional Records
Both excitingly fresh and satisfyingly classic, Ritmo Machine are a new collaborative project between Eric Bobo (Cypress Hill and Beastie Boys perucssionist, son of Willie Bobo) and Chilean DJ Latin Bitman that cuts indie-hop through with thick Latin dance and pop grooves. These two clearly enjoy working together: Welcome crackles and pops with an easy vibrancy as Bobo and Bitman sketch a continuum between sizzling Latin jazz, beachy alt-electronico and sunny, scratched-up backpacker hip-hop (a Chali 2na collection helps solidify that reference). It's a warm, fuzzy thrill of an album.
