AllMusic Review by

The After School Special presents funky Spanish electronica from Mondomo, Mai Mako, and Ruben "Watch TV" Garcia, who also produced this collection. Watch TV kicks the album off with "Palumbo," a playful, Latin jazz-inspired number that blends live and electronic percussion, synths, and saxophones like chocolate and peanut butter. The rest of the album also takes a lighthearted, free-for-all approach, as on Nava's similarly Latin-flavored "El Chalao" and Mako's "Ciclos," which features a doomsday prophet preaching over a rubbery bassline, breakbeats, and scratches. Mondomo's hypnotic "Cosmoturismo," Pez's languid, smoky "Entrelazadamente," and Kifali's dubby "R.A." are some of the other highlights from The After School Special, which provides an entertaining and diverse sampling of some of Spain's most distinctive electronic artists.
