Pitchfork said: Tanlines is a Brooklyn-based production duo made up of two guys who used to be in bands you might know: Jesse Cohen from Professor Murder and Eric Emm from Don Caballero and Storm and Stress. Tanlines traffic in a hazy, organic, sundazed take on dance music, based as much on bongo ripples and springy tropical guitars as synth riffs or bass kicks. In the YouTube videos they’ve made for almost every one of their tracks (which you can hear on MySpace), they set chopped-up found footage to their songs, so it looks like pop culture detritus is dancing right along with them.

An atmospheric old school Latin hip hop track for cruising albeit with the fairly aggressive lyrics. Warning, hydrolic suspension essential.

"Music does bring people together.
It allows us to experience the same emotions.
People everywhere are the same in heart and spirit. No matter what language we speak, what color we are, the form of our politics or the expression of our love and our faith,music proves: We are the same."
H. A. Overstreet
"I have my own particular sorrows, loves, delights; and you have yours. But sorrow, gladness, yearning, hope, love, belong to all of us, in all times and in all places. Music is the only means whereby we feel these emotions in their universality."
"Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything."
