"A unique snapshot of 60s New York: decorated compiler Dean Rudland has spent four years exploring the Latin boogaloo movement of the city where echoes of soul, deep funk and rock n' roll were heard via cover versions and homages by bands such as Los Africanos, Machito, Richie & The PS 54 Schoolyard. Much of the output leads back to the legendary Bobby Marin - a golden resource for DJ Premier samples - who worked just as hard behind the scenes as he did with his own Latin Blues Band.
Loaded with a rich, physical party sound, it's the rough and raw counter to the smoother, larger productions released by Fania at the time. Highlights include the crazed synth jams on "It's A Feeling", Machito & His Orchestra's emphatic covers of Sam & Dave's "Hold On" and Eddie Floyd's "Knock On Wood".
