After four years in the making finally a new chapter of Record Kicks’ premier collection “Let’s Boogaloo” sees the light. This time legendary compiler Dean Rudland, who is responsible of dozens of wicked compilations on BGP, Kent and Blue Note, digs deep into – mythical NYC latin boogaloo producer – Bobby Marin’s catalogue to bring you an explosive collection of (northern) soul, deep funk and Latin jazz tunes from Spanish Harlem aka El Barrio. Bobby Marin has been one of the main contributors and a leading figure behind the latin Boogaloo movement in the mid 60s in New York producing and working close together with stars such us Joe Cuba, Eddie Palmieri, Machito, Riccardo Marrero, not to mention his own combo the legendary Latin Blues Band, recently sampled by DJ Premier as the hook to Christina Aguilera’s “Ain’t No Other Man”.

As Rudland reckons “Bobby is part of a crowd that have sometimes been overlooked because they weren’t central to the Fania Records story, but the music they produced told a truer story of what was going on on the streets of New York than the internationalist world view that was propagated by that label’s owner Jerry Massuci.”

So expect to find here the real stuff,an all killers no fillers selection of rare and impossible to find Latin boogaloo singles from Bobby’s vaults, including some previously unreleased tracks taken directly from master tapes such us Richie’s Theme byRichie & the PS 54 Schooly. A bright sampler of the golden age of the one of the most infectious music genre ever recorded. Compilation comes with extensive liner notes by Mr.Rudland, for instance did you know that’s Bobby’s older brother Richie is the responsible for producing Manny Corchado’s boogaloo stormer Pow Wow? … essential collection, play it loud!
