Here are a fresh batch of mix CDs from Japan's "King Of Diggin" DJ Muro:
The slogan “Take her to Jamaica where the rum comes from” on this mix-CD’s cover design goes a long way to explain what Muro’s Tropicooool Boogie series is about. The mood is hot and sweaty, with calypso, jazz, afrobeat and Latin in abundance. This is the superb seventh volume.
Making what’s old new again, DJ Muro presents a seamless blend of mystery cover versions of old favourites like I Want You Back, ABC, Sunny, Funky Nassau and Rocksteady. Super heavy on the funk, Latin, rock and soul: another masterclass from the King Of Diggin’ with some of the deepest crates around.
A follow up of sorts to Muro’s acclaimed Fania mix from a few years ago, Super Funky Latin Breaks spans all corners of classic Latin music. The cream of sixties and seventies Latin from New York is keenly represented, from high-charged percussive dancefloor cuts to mid-tempo magic, packed with mambos, boogaloos, descargas and Latin soul. Featuring, amongst many others, Joe Bataan, Harvey Averne and the Fania All Stars.
