During the '90s, dance producers voyaged into uncharted genre-crossover waters jazz, classical, dub, academic electronics with increasing regularity, so it was just a matter of time before at least one act attempted a recording inspired by Latin music, specifically the Cuban phenomenon of Buena Vista Social Club.
It's doubtful, however, that anyone in the trip-hop community could do this kind of tribute as well as the British duo Up, Bustle and Outwho not only has strong roots within the music of Central and South America but has previously incorporated on-site field recordings into Bustle & Out with Richard Egües - Rebel Radio (Master Sessions 1 / Calle 23 material.
Still, the first of two volumes in the Rebel Radio series is less a melding of breakbeat dance and native Latin forms than it is a trip-hop album inspired by Cuban music. It was undoubtedly a wise decision -- especially considering the potentially gimmicky sound of Cuban music laced with hip-hop breaks -- but Up, Bustle and Out also ran the risk of their listeners not being able to follow them.
The rest of the album follows the same blueprint, with a couple of excellent up-tempo trip-hop tracks leading into a section of flute- and piano-led Cuban guarachas or descargas. The productions are always tied to Cuba, from the paranoid strings of "Kennedy's Secret Tapes" to the searing vibes of "Havana's Streets," a poetry piece with vocals by Martin Genge.
