Que Chevere!  Ray LugoRating: ★★★★★ Billed as the the premier contemporary boogaloo and latin soul outfit working today, Ray Lugo & The Boogaloo Destroyers are also pretty much the only contemporary boogaloo and latin soul outfit working today – at least with any sort of international status. But don’t let that fool you – these guys bring it like Fania at the height of the label’s glory days.

(My Baby’s Got Latin Soul) is classic boogaloo de Nueva York while over on the flip it’s all about Mr Battery’s cumbia breaks rerub of atmospheric LP cut La Tumba De Fu Manchu. Players below plus the vid to the B-side…
(Out 17 November on Freestyle Records)
