If you dig those John Beltran platters of proud, Latin and Brazilian jazz-learned electronic groove, you already know you're in for another treat when his records drop – and this one may be his best yet! On In Full Color he once again injects a lot warmth, and really nice organic feel to the album, thanks to collaborations with a number of vocalists, percussion, some guitars and other instrumentation. Guests like Ayro, John Arnold, Elsa Hedberg, Colonel Red & Local 12 drop in, so you get a pretty great blend of electronic club, Latin, African and altogether global flair, sweet percussion and some occasional guitars and strings. All told, it's about as earthy of a batch of electro club material as you're gonna find – which is another reason to hail John and our friends at Ubiquity! "Rain In Shibuya", "Kissed By The Sun", "Candela", "She Is", "Dia Brisio", "Your Colors", "Azulaje", "Pica", "Starlight Memories" and "Pictures and Indian Summer".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
