On Latin Groove, classic Latin traditions are transformed to the brink of mutation, but their native elegance is left intact. Funkanzazenji weave flamenco guitars and kora-like glissandi through sturdy colonnades of drum & bass on "Latin Flavor." El Conjunto Massalia's "Chan Chan" is based on a son by Compay Segundo, but veers off into Steve Cropper guitar riffs and prurient, Serge Gainsbourg-like vocals. "Yorulamento," by the German-based producer Supatone, mutates a stately charanga string section via reverberant synths and drum machines. Colombian rockers Los Aterciopelados, with their slap-happy montuno/house rhythms and whiskey-voiced chanteuse, are silkily subversive, while Ozomatli's "Cumbia de los Muertos" grounds a Mexican cumbia with heavy hits of reggae and hip-hop. As with Putumayo's Arabic Groove and World Lounge compilations, these tracks are post cards from the world music frontier, where mischievous, culturally promiscuous DJs are constantly inventing breathtaking new hybrids. --Christina Roden
