Album Review

Loungecore DJ/producer Ursula 1000 fashions himself the post-millennial Esquivel, populating his second production album with 14 groovy, pleasant, slightly hip throwaways that leave few stylistic stones unturned in their quest for attention. "Beatbox Cha Cha" merges Rob Base and Pérez Prado, with a little finesse and a pumping bridge, while the opening title track makes its bid for Austin Powers-style immortality with an infectious little mover featuring all the requisite touches: go-go bassline, female vocalist, sleazy guitar, and swirling Hammond organ (the latter comes courtesy of Combustible Edison's Brother Cleve). Alex Gimeno, the man behind Ursula 1000, certainly knows his musical history; he's able to quote styles ranging from bossa nova to Bollywood to blaxploitation to breakbeat hip-hop. It's not especially subtle, but Kinda' Kinky is well produced and certainly fun.

This is a must have album. Many great songs included.

Like Mid Century Design, when it’s first heard it just seems to all fall together like a perfect MCM living room. Behind the scenes though it shows painstaking craftsmanship of the highest degree. I highly recommend this album for anyone who enjoys a good martini in their bachelor or bachelorette pad.
