Curro Fuentes & The Big Band Cumbia and Descarga Sound of Colombia 1962 – 1972


Soundway set sail for the Colombian coastal town of Cartagena for their first selection of 2011. Sourced from a period when musicians effortlessly combined the swing of cumbia with the driving bass of salsa, Cartagena! un-wraps a period of musical history seldom heard beyond the tropical coast of South America.

Compiled by Roberto Gyemant with the help of Colombian resident Will ‘Quantic’ Holland and Miles Cleret, Cartagena! focuses on the extraordinary life and career of Curro Fuentes, the youngest brother of the family responsible for the Discos Fuentes label.

Cartagena! features 19 tracks and is presented on CD and double gatefold LP, designed by Lewis Heriz. Both CD and LP include detailed liner notes and offer insights from Will Holland’s interview with the late Curro Fuentes.

Compilation Strut records


Strut présente la première compilation de SOFRITO, un des collectifs de musiques tropicales les plus populaires en Grande-Bretagne. Composé du DJ Hugo Mendez (LA référence en terme de rééditions de pépites Afro et latine, à qui on doit notamment le fabuleux ‘Tropical funk experience’) et de Frankie Francis aux côtés de The Mighty Crime Minister, SOFRITO a su combiner le sérieux du ‘chasseur de vinyles’ au savoir-faire de l’organisateur de soirées légendaires, faisant bouger les dance-floors au son de grooves vintage. Pour cette compilation, SOFRITO a rassemblé 15 dynamites aux grooves tropicaux de provenances variées. On retrouve la cumbia de Quantic, la disco de Victor Uwaifo et les jams old-time de Roaring Lion et de Mighty Shadow.

Shapes 10.02 := inédits et remixs


Quand l’écurie Tru-Thoughts s’échange les pistes de leurs créations respectives cela permet de donner une seconde vie à des morceaux qui dépotent déjà dans leur versions originales. Ainsi Stonephace remixe Kinny, Quantic remixe Saravah Soul, Hint remixe Kylie Auldist.. etc.

Après Shapes 10.01, la compilation Shapes 10.02, regroupe sur un double CD (ou vinyle) de nombreux inédits choisis par Robert Luis. Le premier CD s’écoute assis et propose des perles (Nu)reggae, des inédits Nu Jazz (à paraître en 2011) et le second CD, lui, est taillé pour le dancefloor, mais pas n’importe quel dancefloor : Celui qu’on empreinte avec des baskets et un esprit funky grâce à une série de titres mixés ou remixés par Flevans, Atjazz, Azaxx, Maddslinky etc..

Shapes 10.02 est une compilation de très bonne facture (encore meilleure que la première Shapes 10.01) En voilà une idée de cadeau qu’elle est bonne ! La pochette n’est pas un montage Photoshop. C’est une vraie sculpture de Mark Jenkins. Source de l’article

Latino Resiste Presents AZUCAH SELECTAH
Latino Resiste is BACK!!!


As you know this is a project that tries to unite Latin American sense of the underground scene, bringing music, graphics, and at the same time people, like you or me, all under a single motion,..SABOR!!!

Selected by Maite Hontele, DJ MUNDO & Caballo

or copy/paste

Latino Resiste is a compilation of music, and slowly it’s turning into a social project!!
Once you download the album and you see the Booklet, and the ART you will see why…

LR presents Azucah Selectah is trying to show the opinion and music from known and unknown artists, and also making sub thematic compilations that reflect a particular style of some Latin American trends, we are trying to show what is happening in Latin America Underground Scene.

We are very proud to present AZUCAH SELECTAH ( Free Download)

A work that drops an amazing selection coming from the eclectic tastes of the Golden Girl of Salsa, Maite Hontele, alongside DJ Mundo from Rebelsounds, and Caballo, all together in a project that attempts to show a new face of Latin music in terms of salsa, not Fania version of Salsa, neither your Orishas or Mixed version..
this is a movement that started growing slow but strongly from late nineties, although only until the end of the last decade emerges fully outside the so called “underground” in Latin America.

We have seen great blogs like The Fader or even DJ Chino’s trying to approach people to this section of the Latin Culture, but it is still very away in terms of what is going on in our latinoamerican streets.

This release will show you a HUGE portion of the sounds that are all over the clubs, although their exposure outside the Latin context remains very limited.

That is the mission of Latino Resiste presents Azucah Selectah;

show how close these Rhythms of pure salsa, Descarga, boogaloo, Latin jazz, Guaguanco, etc. .. are of global trends such as fusion mestiza, drum n ‘bass, dubstep, ska, cumbia, and other genres that are blended in this album and try to push further the true essence of America.

We have pretty much some of the coolest sounds around!!
RADIO REBELDE, MAITE HONTELE, SONORA OCHO, LA REPUBLICA, BITUAYA, PEDRO INFAME, DLC SUDSOUND, are just a small portion of the great sounds you will find.
