This is the Soundtrack for the game "Tropico"
WINNER! "Outstanding Achievement in Original Musical Composition"
by The Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences
WINNER, BEST MUSIC OF 2001!
Featuring 14 original latin songs produced and directed by renowed producer/songwriter, Daniel Indart for the video game: Tropico. A sparkly offering of Caribbean rhythms and flavors with beautiful melodies, dance beats and spicy lyrics, featuring songs written and performed by latin artists/songwriters Lucho Campillo, Jesus Alejandro "El Niño", Los Corales and Daniel Indart himself. Its production exhibits a highly sophisticated, pristine quality, while preserving its fresh Caribbean street like feel.
“The music is of such high quality, that it will do more than put you in a tropical mood while playing, it will have you humming the songs long after you have played. In fact, the soundtrack would make excellent music for the next tropical-themed party you throw.”
- About the Human Internet with Ned Jordan
"The game’s Caribbean soundtrack is certainly one of the finest musical experiences you can find in any PC game. The beat, the instrumentals, the songs, all add to the equitorial environment of the game and will have your toe a’tappin’. "
- Future Games Network
“I’ve always been a strong advocate of quality music in games. Obvious or subtle, the music can set the mood and tone of an entire game. If the theme is jarring, even a good game will suffer drastically - perhaps even critically - from the discord between the game and the musical background. Fortunately, there are no such worries here. The songs of Tropico were produced by LMS Records (www.lmsrecords.com
), their snappy Latin rhythms rolling perfectly around the game play and lending the whole experience magnificent authenticity, like the strong scent of a fine Cuban cigar. This is the first time that I intend to buy the soundtrack to the game when it is released on a CD - no kidding!”
