Cuban fury via Madrid time on new El Combo Batanga 45 El Que La Rompe La Paga. El que la rompe la paga? Damn straight! What a shame governments didn’t apply such obvious logic in 2008 when banking broke the global financial system? Still, this blistering salsa-funk beast will allow you to unleash your inner Latin dancer while you ponder global financial corruption, incompetence and greed. Meanwhile the PR promises a, ‘Latin groove descarga, with a nod to the dancehall classic Ring The Alarm,’ on flip Toca la Campana which arguably sounds even more exciting. The monkey was about to write that not even music bloggers get to hear that bad boy until release date but a swift google turned up the goods from two years ago – see video below Bandcamp player.
