I recently caught IMS live for the first time a couple of months ago, at
the openning of an electronic arts festival, and they (someone else was
playing with Camilo Lara that night) were awesome. It took them a while to
get the crowd dancing (after all, it was an arts event, not a normal gig),
but they surprised most of the attendance with their mix of samples and
simple beats with loads of humour. I was one of the skeptical -- I thought
this kind of mixture was already out of style in Mexico --, but I am a
convert now. The record is even better than their live show and I strongly
recommend it.
