Salsatón - Salsa Con Reggaeton (w/ Daddy Yankee, Voltio, Cheka, N'Klabe Etc.)
CD (Univision 40007), Released 2006;
Editor's Pick:
I approached this one with more than a bit of trepidation, not really knowing what to expect. So, you can guess how happy I was to hear that Salsatón was actually, at its core, a powerhouse salsa number with some added reggaetón muscle, and not a diluted effort to appeal to the idea of a hip hop demographic. Not that I do not like reggaetón — I do, but so much of recent salsa releases include one track with a reggaetón break that it has become a nearly predictable element. And these breaks often seem included as an afterthought that didn't *really* need to be there. Back to this CD. First off, half of Salsatón is pure explosive salsa [no reggaetón at all] brought to you by one of the genre's treasures. Montañez ranks right up there with Oscar D'Leon and Gilberto Santa Rosa as one of the music's most talented singers — and also one of the most recognizable. Produced by Sergio George — who knows how to build a fire — Salsatón's straight-up salsa numbers like "Yo No Quiero Que Seas Celosa" are some of the hottest you'll hear this year. And the reggaetón infused tracks like "Café Colao" (featuring Crooked Stilo) have the feel that they were built from the ground up, not simply a cut and paste. It's all fresh and waiting to be played at a fine dance club near you. DJ Alert.
Highly Recommended. (BP, 2006-04-26)
