This beautiful 1980s “fusion” pieceĀ  is one of my favorite laidback midtempo tracks. It retainsĀ  a distinct, warm sound but is balanced with moments of great bursts of energy. This track is packed with so many little awesome organic sounds and percussion bits over the pulsing electronic bassline and sparse electronic drum programming. I prefer this vocal version over the dub because I think the singing fits in very well with the composition. Great warm-up track from the Puerto Rican salsa master and a cheap vinyl buy (typically under $10 on EBay or at the shop).
