1,001 Albums: Albums 0015: Tito Puente - Dance Mania Vol. 1 / Infected Mushroom - Vicious Delicious

*sigh* Another album like Sabu’s “Palo Congo.”  Fortunately, we’re almost completely out of salsa territory.  I think there’s a prerequisite for being able to enjoy music like this.  I think it’s a die hard affinity for hot weather, beaches, basically a bizarre derivation of pleasure from situations that make me irritated and uncomfortable.  I don’t know.  I really can’t relate.  Maybe I just haven’t had an experience in my life that was able to break salsa music into my heart.  

Anyway, the album I’m talking about is Tito Puente’s “Dance Mania Vol. 1.”  After this album, I think we’re home free.  The other album for today is the E.P.I.C. Infected Mushroom album, Vicious Delicious.  I’ve drawn from this album for Monday Morning Aural Sex many, many times.  This album is far more accessible than the majority of their purely Psytrance/Goa releases.  By accessible, I mean it’s more likely to appeal to people who don’t often step outside their comfort zone (or get off the couch, as appropriate to the phrase, “couch music”).

What makes Vicious Delicious even better, in my opinion, are the numerous tracks from it released for Stepmania (a Dance Dance Revolution/In The Groove simulator for PC/Mac).  Whoever made the step charts to the songs I love playing, my hat’s off to you.
