The original version starts out with a djembé rythm and then other drum layers start adding up progressively then around 2:30 comes a break and a VERY catchy flute melody (I ended up whistling for days). Then all the tribal rythms pick up again, making you at least nod your head in rythm, if not actually getting up and dancing. Around 4:30 comes some spanish singing that kindof ruins the feeling for me, although Ive found that the more I listened to it, the more the voice part made sense. That said, I would've much prefered an instrumental version identical to this but without the singing...

The dub version is purely instrumental, it doesn't have the voice part, but I also found it a bit more flat and less catchy than the original. Oh and in case you were wondering, the dub influences are really minimal, it has the same ethnic house feeling as the A-side.

Overall I'm pretty impressed with this release (although like I said, I could've done without the singing part). My main interests in music are psytrance and psychill, and I find that if people like ethinic psychill stuff like Shpongle, they'll like this a lot as well.

This track is definitely one of the hottest in the minimal tech house scene at the moment. I heard it played more times at this year's Winter Music Conference than any other single.

The samples are from Totó La Momposina Y Sus Tambores. I'm not sure what nationality they are, but the flutes and bass make it sound Peruvian. Makes for an interesting cut with more action than the typical minimal house but doesn't feel out of place.
