Oom Dooby Dochas present a reissue of Daniel Grau's El Leon Bailarin, originally released in 1980. El Leon Bailarin shows the typical trademarks of its Venezuelan creator Daniel Grau. Spaced-out disco grooves with some nifty female vocals aspirated gently upon the light-footed waves of synthesizer melodies and pulsating rhythms. An exception is the second track "Con En Cielo En Tus Ojos" which is a lush and utterly relaxed floating Latin pop number with a repetitive vocal line breathing an atmosphere of peace. There is definitely more color on this album than expected from listening to the Disco Fantasy (DOO 16001CD/LP, 1979) record which in fact was a strong piece already. Fans of Donna Summer during the late '70s will love the silky, yet vivid feel of the steady pulse the rhythms offer on El Leon Bailarin. This is one of those albums that should have been legendary among the dancing public when it was released - peppered with memorable tunes that work well even decades after its release. Looking beyond the surface, dig this is a real jewel of its genre.
