Blending irresistibly catchy chopped up vocals with chiming synths and underpinning it with constantly fidgety percussion, the A-side is a perfect slice of radio-friendly funky house. More of a late night guilty pleasure than anything else, it's guaranteed to get bodies moving. B-side "Cumbia" follows much the same approach, but is imbued with a marginally harder edge due to the more insistent beat and darting, shimmering synths that drive the tune along with a skip and a whistle.
Ultimately both cuts tread the thin line between dance floor mayhem and soundtracking a car insurance advert—presumably a risk you have to take when making house music this irrepressibly upbeat and catchy. Thankfully Alejandro Paz, while admittedly teetering on this tightrope, just about manages to pull it off.
