Hit The Bongo (Hit The Boogaloo)

A 2 track acid jazz single (6m 12s) — released July 12th 2010 on Vinyl Vibes
We're proud and happy to present our newest signing, Budapest based Latin Boogaloo band EL CHAVO, produced by the legendary Jazz DJ PAUL MURPHY. This is going to be our first ever vinyl 7" - the only relevant format for this fantastic rocking piece of music. Here El Chavo offer 2 versions of Tito Puente hits - Hit The Bongo and the Acid Jazz Classic Hola Muneca - and they sound like their straight out of Spanish Harlem in 1967! A sure future classic!!

It’s Brilliant!!! A slice of Joe Bataan for the 21st century ! - Eddie Piller Acid Jazz

Superb! Goes straight on the show! A Latin bomb that stands shoulder to shoulder with the Tito original. - Craig Charles

Rowdy latin boogaloo...just the way it should be! Love it! - DJ Lubi

Didn't hear any new recorded latin boogaloo tunes in a long time and this one is rocking and delivering a brilliant live atmosphere! - Dusty

Sounding very good indeed. Something that'll be in the box for the next year!! Good work sir!! - Diesler
