AllMusic Review by

Loungecore DJ/producer Ursula 1000 fashions himself the post-millennial Esquivel, populating his second production album with 14 groovy, pleasant, slightly hip throwaways that leave few stylistic stones unturned in their quest for attention. "Beatbox Cha Cha" merges Rob Base and PĂ©rez Prado, with a little finesse and a pumping bridge, while the opening title track makes its bid for Austin Powers-style immortality with an infectious little mover featuring all the requisite touches: go-go bassline, female vocalist, sleazy guitar, and swirling Hammond organ (the latter comes courtesy of Combustible Edison's Brother Cleve). Alex Gimeno, the man behind Ursula 1000, certainly knows his musical history; he's able to quote styles ranging from bossa nova to Bollywood to blaxploitation to breakbeat hip-hop. It's not especially subtle, but Kinda' Kinky is well produced and certainly fun.
