Drawn from the more exotic side of house, this eighth instalment of the Nite:life series pulses to a superior crop of sun-kissed soul and Latin rhythms. Having already asserted his style credentials by giving the theme from the film American Beauty a sultry house make-over for Top 10 single "American Dream"--under the guise of Jakatta, one of his many production monikers--DJ Joey Negro here distils an evening's worth of impeccable listening. Slinking from the jazz-funk swing of Jon Cutler's "It's Yours" and the salsa party horns and cow-bell beats of Negrocan's "Aquela Esquina", to the classic funk styling of David Bendeth's "Feel the Real" and Fini Dolo's smouldering "Blow", clichés and chart tunes are deftly avoided in favour of grooves that are as rare as they are smooth. Perhaps some are too smooth for the dance floor; although the glistening disco of "Inspired" from Satoshi Tomiie and Sandy Riviera & Jose Burgos's "Jazz It" ride a compelling bass beat. But that's part of the charm of the ever-present 1970s jazz-fusion vibe--it'll sound just as good in the living room as it will in style-conscious bars everywhere. --Dan Gennoe
Top customer reviews
On the whole, a quality album, with no duff tracks at all, although some tracks have been doing the rounds on the 'descerning' house music lovers' turntable, for a while now. Should be five stars, but 4 stars as I've heard several of the tracks before.

Joey Negro it's a famous DJ, and in this CD you can find it's attitude:
Simple way to make good music.
Here there isn't a reserch of new sound, only reserch of good music to listen and to dance.
All togheter he create an athmopsphere: DANCE WITH JOY.
From the first song (IT'S YOURS) you have the feeling of the rythm that in the CD it's going from Soul to Funky with just a little of Jazz and Disco.
Aquela Esquina, Storm and Inspired are very great songs, but all the general level it's very up...up up and Dance.
