Matasuna Records deliver more latin action with this lively double-header 45 from Otto De Rojas Y Los Ultra 76. On the one side is classic uptempo latin jazz/ funk/ disco nugget Choca Las Caderas from 1976, adorned with the piano tinkles of legendary ivories-tickler De Rojas. On the flip the Peruvian combo try their hand at a cover of Soulful Strut by Stateside soul-jazz groovers Young-Holt Unlimited with the promisingly-titled Al Ritmo De Bump Bump featuring a similar tempo and dancefloor appeal, not to mention some nifty wah-wah. Both cuts have been re-mastered in the UK and the word on the street is that the sound quality betters even the original!
(Out 25 May on Matasuna Records)
