Biography

Ozomatli belong to a breed of global music hoodlum alongside the likes of Manu Chao and Los De Abajo. They all play a kind of hi-octane pan-Latino dance music which mixes elements like ska, samba, salsa, punk, hip hop to varying degrees, and, in Ozomatli’s case, funk, Tex Mex, swing and soul as well. On stage, they rely mainly on live instruments, old style, and mash all their influences ... Read more in Amazon's Ozomatli Store

Format:Audio CD
On Place in the Sun, the eighth album from LA Latino funk collective Ozomatli, the band eschews its grittier, politically charged earlier ethos in favor of a more pop sound. "..."it’s really surprising at how poppy their sound had become over the decade."

The fact that Ozomatli has been making music for this long is an accomplishment in itself and a testament to the commitment of their fan base, driven in large part by the radioactive energy of their live performance. I had a chance to see Ozomatli rock a crowd of about a thousand mostly white, middle aged beach folk down in Florida over a decade ago. Proving their chops more than any album ever could is their ability to connect with seemingly polar opposites through the diplomacy of funk. I got into Ozomatli because I was into DJing, funk music, and anything by Cut Chemist.

After only the first album their material departed from hip-hop infused beats provided by the Jurassic 5 co-founder, to the point where now the presence of the DJ is unheard on this album. That’s not good or bad, just an observation. Hopefully they still at least have a DJ in their live shows, as this was one of the major things that sparked a lot of people’s interest in them in the first place.

What’s up for debate is the quality of this record, and overall, as an album, it is bad. From a fan’s perspective, this is difficult to say, as both their live show and some of their older material is amazing. The first five tracks on this album feel like the members were trying in earnest to write the most amazing pop song for every style of music they could play. Batucada? Check. Electro? Check. Pop Rock? Check. Reggae primed for the nearest Sandals resort? Check. Slow-jam Salsa? You get the picture.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great OZO album April 13, 2014
By Amanda
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have been a fan of Ozomatli since their first album, and this new one is one of my favorites! The songs are all so catchy and upbeat, and the production sounds way better than the last album. If you are an OZO fan, it is absolutely worth buying.

It was fun to listen to but I actually like some of their other stuff better...I like the ghetto edge your earlier endeavours had.
