Fort Lauderdale's Neurodisc Records could possibly make the best mix tape for a jumpin' house party -- ya know, the kind of party where everyone shows up at the front door at the same time, like in Weird Science? The majority of its catalog is albums like Drop Your Bass, Strictly for da Bassheadz, Bass Drag Racing, Bass Torture, and the instant party classics, Old School Ghetto Booty and 1-900-GET-SOME. But if you're not a fan of all that bass up in your face, Fort Lauderdale's NuSound, a.k.a. Ivan Kopas, is all like, "Hey, let's just chill out, OK?" His latest album, World Moods, is pretty much what you might expect: 12 tracks of exotic, trippy, jet-lagged, ambient chants and instrumentals perfect for, well, being in an "altered state." "The early morning fog subsides as ancient Middle Eastern grooves awaken the soul," the press release states. It might be the Middle Eastern grooves awakening your soul. Or it might be the Ecstasy. Either way, World Moods gets a little too atmospheric toward the end, spiraling out into uncharted territory. If NuSound's got the stamina to go for an hour, he should stick to the sexified slow jams of his Erotic Moods series. -- Audra Schroeder
