Overview

Fans of the first volume in Kriztal's seasonal Vintage Chill series will not be disappointed with its second. Subtitled "Summer, the disc desires to be your deck party chill music. In fact, it goes so far as to plan such an event. "Music for wine lovers!" its front cover sticker screams. "Perfect for a party on the terrace!" Copy on the back sets a scene filled with chilled wine and relaxed guests, digging the bright sun and, assumedly, the groovy Vintage Chill beats. Said grooves are mainly of the downtempo, jazz-house variety. Vocalist Yukimi Nagano warms up Koop's bossa nova-influenced "Summer Sun," and Buscemi keeps things going with chopped-up Latin elements on the funky "Ramiro's Theme." Relative star power is provided by Thievery Corporation, which donates "Liberation Front" from 2002's Richest Man in Babylon. But while it's head nod-worthy, the track is also strangely bland. This feeling of pleasant detachment is representative of Vintage Chill's lesser moments. The compilation moves easier than a linen suit on a hot day. But occasionally its bright beats and perfectly arranged influences are washed out by their own glare. That said, "Summer" will likely serve your outdoor cocktail party as well as any graphically attractive downtempo collection, and should fit well next to its Vol. 1 partner. Other album highlights include Laila France's steamy French vocals on the Maxwell Implosion's "Lailove" and Physics' "Leaving Monte Carlo," which might be the music for an airport waiting room exclusive to international playboys.
