Amoeba Review

04/27/2018

When Tijuana Sound Machine landed in 2008, there was nothing like it. It was a fever dream combo of electronic funk a la Daft Punk, sick drum machine beats, and samples of norteños and other distinctly Mexican music. Musically, they’re as magnetically opposed as you can imagine, but this fusion became the Latin dance jam of the naughts, moving on to score a Latin Grammy nomination and two follow up albums. April 2018 marks the 10th anniversary of this landmark album, and to celebrate, Tijuana Sound Machine is getting pressed onto vinyl for the first time. Whether you are new to this album or a seasoned listener, this immaculate LP will sound better than any scratched CD or crummy MP3. The title track was a breakthrough dance hit where '70s disco rhythm slaps against the sharp, antiquated sounds of an accordion jamming out. The song builds around an accordion riff in such a unique way that flaunts its Mexican roots with one of the most iconic instruments of that country. It sounds like those old ballads your abuela would listen to, but funkier. “Akai 47” is even more extreme as the accordion pairs with the bass heaviness of a tuba. The title draws a direct connection to the dusty world of beat making, sampling, and the legendary Akai samplers. A jaunty tuba riff trots along with “ooomm paahhh” sounds as a frenzy of short samples and electronics skip around it. If you are new to Latin music and wasn’t sure where to dip your toes into first, there’s no better place to start. Dusty record collectors and DJs know what’s up with Tijuana Sound System and so should you.
