Amigos Invisibles, Los – The New Sound of the Venezuelan Gozadera [GOLD VINYL 2xLP] - New LP
2023 reissue of 1998 LP. Los Amigos Invisibles (The Invisible Friends) have created the ultimate party album. Surprising segues join non-stop grooves. It flows and swings and never stops… one song/groove leads right into the next, no waiting. It feels like being smacked upside the head in a delicious way. The New Sound of the Venezuelan Gozadera is a journey deep into the pants of rhythm. Party music hasn’t sounded this chic since Chic. “The Gozadera, more than a musical style, is a concept allowing us to use whatever music we enjoy and mix it up,” says guitarist Jose Luis Pardo. “Like boogaloo, salsa, bossa nova, funk, disco, house, techno, jungle, merengue, New Wave, cha-cha-cha, mambo, and of course Acid Jazz.”
This is a limited anniversary edition of The New Sound of the Venezuelan Gozadera in a celebratory colored vinyl version. We’re calling it 25th-Anniversary-Pot-At-The-End-Of-The-Rainbow Gold. (This 2LP comes in a gatefold jacket.) When Los Amigos Invisibles first released “The New Sound”—exactly a quarter of a century ago!)—it was the ultimate party album. Time has passed, but the party has kept on—and this party music, full of non-stop funked out grooves, is a journey deep into the pants of rhythm. And who better to pull this off than producer Andres Levin (Aterciopelados, Chaka Khan, La Portuaria, La Secta, El Gran Silencio, David Byrne, Arto Lindsay, and many more) along with engineer Fernando Aponte (Masters at Work, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Deee-Lite, Towa Tei)?
