New Release: ‘Hammock House – Lower East Side’

 

Hammock House – Lower East Side is the result of four DJ/producers being allowed access to the original multitrack master tapes of some highly coveted vintage Fania tracks. The products are a Latin electronica rebirth of these classics in the form of “funky rhythms, cumbia grooves, sensuous electronic textures and remixed Héctor Lavoe vocal lines.”

Toy Selectah, The Whiskey Barons, DJ Isa GT, and Twin Shadow have created memorable masterpieces from the timeless work of Fania greats Ray Barretto, Justo Betancourt, Willie Colon, Hector Lavoe, Ismael Rivera

Be sure to check The Whiskey Barons at our Mondo events in Boston, too! Keep checking back for the next date they play.
