When famed Latin pop producer (and brother of the late Selena) A.B. Quintanilla first brought his young charges Los Kumbia Kings to the world, their fresh mix of Tejano, Mexican pop, R&B, and hip-hop instantly earned them a huge fanbase and impressive record sales. ALL MIXED UP effectively capitalizes on both the group's well-earned popularity and the talents of A.B. and the boys. It features new mixes of some super-hot Kumbia Kings tracks, emphasizing both the danceability and pure pop appeal of the production and the rhythmic pliability and melodic sophistication that come from the Latin side of the group's stylistic equation. Both accessible and visceral, ALL MIXED UP manages to successfully present all the facets of the group's eclectic sound.
