“Upshot Mix” – Latin Flavas from Kid Bongo


Photo by ZoOm

FutureBoogie’s Kid Bongo has done a wicked mix of Afro, Latin, Future Cuban Funk, Brazilian and Broken House Soul.  Get a load of Ray Barretto’s 1968 killer latin soul tune “Love Beads”, or the 1964 monster bass on “Lluvia con Nieve” (Rain with Snow), one of my favourite Salsa tracks.  But don’t be fooled, this is an organic mix with a future twist.  It’s about time this blog had some more Latin on it… nice one Steve.

Check it out….
