Various Artists San Francisco Under a Groove
- Words: Luciana Lopez
- Label: Newhouse
The problem with a scene as rich as San Francisco‘s is that it‘s full of talented musicians setting the bar really high. On this compilation, Goapele‘s "Closer" and the bass-driven "Where‘s the Tape" from Triangle Orchestra do a good job of showcasing the city‘s distinctively warm, laid-back, and groovy style. In that vein, veteran Miguel Migs contributes "Do it for You," and Karmacoda turns in their "Masterplan Remix," which has the slinky vibe of an old Sneaker Pimps record. But with so many other excellent San Francisco comps already released, this one needs to be a bit more unique to make its desired impact.
