The title track of José “Jas” Álvarez’ debut album is a head boppin’ piece of funk, soulfully sang by the man who can, Mr. Xantoné Blacq, one of the many collaborators on the Soul Vigilantes longplayer. Background Noise gets the uptempo house treatment by Pablo Sánchez and Odnam (of Caracas funk outfit Los Amigos Invisibles), while French editmeister Pilooski takes the track on a hypnotical(ly) slow cosmic disco trip.
