En la playa al sol, an album like a tasty cocktail, which combines contemporary Latin, Jazz, Soul & Lounge styles in the best possible way. Celebrating the lust for life without being trivial. Flavoured with a healthy helping of jazz this album arranges a deep atmosphere of soul and sensuality.
Rodrigo Sanchez (musician & producer), has a passion for electronic instruments, the album sounds neither static nor sterile. A great experience of how eclectic and spirited electronic music should be. In february 2006 his deep house remix of Club des Belugas "Wildcats gotta move" (not included on this album) stayed for 8 weeks in the Top Ten of the German Club Charts with peak position #3.
Nidia Ortiz from the Dominican Republic creates with her incisive and lyrical voice a delightful summer-like Caribbean atmosphere. Brenda Boykin, the jazz lady from California (Bammie nomination 1997 for Best vocalist of the Year / Montreux Jazz Festival Award Winner 2005/ supporting Al Jarreau and Club des Belugas), deliberately decided to collaborate with Rodrigo Sanchez and seduces the audience again with her extraordinary souly-jazzy voice. Rodrigo Sanchez remixes - Bah Samba (vocals Alice Russell) and Sandboy, two respected stars of the Latin-Lounge and Nu-Jazz scene, perfect for this album. You will never have enough of it!
