Mr. Bongo has been putting out hard to get records for quite some time. For those of you who still aren’t familiar, and those who just caught on after his excellent Crate Diggers interview, he is about to blow your mind this time once again. His Brazilian reissue and first time on seven inch series was so top notch, that we here at FMF want them all, and we mean all of them. Essential tunes as well as other sides that are impossible to find unless you actually go to Brazil, risk your life in some favela, and return to your home base broke and tired. You also could just spend your life’s savings and just live on the side of the road under said records, the originals are that expensive. It has been a pleasure to hear all Mr. Bongo had to offer in the Brazilian genre. Now, good people, he’s about to drop some Latin heat. Necessary in so many ways, you can now get your hands on hard to find Latin bangers including Latin Soul, Jazz, Salsa, Mambo, and Cumbia that fit neatly into your set and record box. With artists such as Ray Baretto, Tito Puente, Pete Rodriguez, Sabu Martinez, Nico Gomez, and others, you’ll be dancing the night away no doubt. These records are cut loud at 45RPM on seven inch vinyl, and will be presented to the listener in Mr. Bongo Latin 45 house bags. How cool is that? If you’re not into Latin records, here’s a chance to get a proper introduction. Sabrosa!
