Strings and things: Nuyorican Soul

30 11 2008

Need some time to ease my mind after a hectic week that resulted in mental and physical fatigue. So I turn to a dancefloor evergreen that never fails to lift my spirits. It’s rare to find a cover version that packs more oomph than the (Salsoul Orchestra) original.

Legendary NY-based Latin DJ and production team NuYorican Soul is a two-man wrecking crew consisting of Kenny ‘Dope’ Gonzalez and ‘Little’ Louie Vega who, on this occasion, teamed up with the former’s ex-wife, salsa singer India and Salsoul veterans Vincent Montana Jr. and Ronnie ‘The Hawk’ James. The result is a stunning hymn to 70s disco.
