I am a huge fan of portable and somehow his tracks always sound authentic with little sense of a template followed. But the second track is by an artist I know nothing about except that he has the cadenza seal of approval. For me, this track comes dangerously close to some sense of being too much, signifiers overloaded with latin emotion. But something about the woman's voice carries it. Somehow I believe her.
Then I start to think about the kicks from pushing these taste boundaries. This mix features ame- and also flirts with my prejudices-an overblown trance workout with echoes of the 80s. I should run screaming but there is a dark attraction to it all. I find this kind of drama fun-something to play with when I dance.
