Very nice 70`s inspired Afro-Latin-Funk + Modern Soul from Los Angeles (2014 release)
Afro-latin-funksters from L.A. Jungle Fire are finally putting out their first album, `Tropicoso`, on Nacional Records. Starting with 3 of their killer singles sides, Comencemos (Let`s Start), their irresistible latin-funk spin on a Fela Kuti tune, Tokuta, a fantastic afro-latin burner full of amazing breaks, and Firewalker, an unstoppable piece of afro-disco. At that point you already know this album is gonna be a scorcher! Then come the new tunes… Tropicoso and `Culebro` are pure deep latin-soul, the kind you play on repeat, the kind you can put in so many playlists, those are instant classics. The dancefloor disco-funk beat of `Village Hustle` which follows should finish to convert anyone still having doubts on whether to buy this album on vinyl or not. After the beautiful afro-cumbia funk-jazz travels of `Chalupa`, already released on 45, comes `Snake Pit`, a marvelous piece of Jamaican soul with a cinematographic Californian vibe. The LP then concludes with `Los Feligreses`, a cover of Cuban pianist Luis Santi on some uptempo heavy afrofunk latin b-boy bizness tip! 9 smashing tunes, 2 interludes, no filler, and mostly highly explosive, with a front cover photo of palm leaves taken by B+, founder of Mochilla in Stephen Marley`s backyard.
