This is such a tastefully sleazy collection from the underated Hed Kandi outfit 45 dip and Mark Doyle. What a hypnotic soundtrack of pure left field extreme chillout lounging! This is a blend of Kruder and Dorfmeister, Tosca and Thievery Corporation compiled to a downbeat DJ kicks movie style sound track. There's latin tango pure chill . One of the most underated chill out compilations of the year that has been bypassed .This one's a killer!

Interesting collection of tunes that lean heavily towards acid jazz (for want of a better word)and latin. Although not quite 'uneasy listening' as described on the album cover, most of the compilation is highly accesssible and entertaining with a gentle nod to left field. The Acid lounge goes west, which I purchased at the same time,was, I'm afraid to say a disapointment. Although there were one or two tracks that were excellent, it wasn't worth the money. All in all, if you like your music laid back with a twist of something else! This is well worth taking the plunge.
