I've been busy lately putting together my "Best of 2010" blog post, which will appear at the end of the month. As we start to wind down this year and look ahead to 2011, we already have some superb upcoming new releases to be excited about. One of those releases, as I've mentioned before on this site (SEE Sofrito: Tropical Discotheque), is Sofrito's upcoming compilation titled Tropical Discotheque off of Strut Records. This album doesn't make it's way onto record shelves until January 25th, however DJ Hugo Mendez of Sofrito fame has cooked up a great new mix featuring tracks from their upcoming compilation. Think of it as a little "tropical sunshine" to help de-frost the current cold winter days. Enjoy!

And if that isn't enough, here is Frankie Francis and Simbad's superb edit of Victor Uwaifo's funky tropical gem "Ohue", which is featured on the compilation.
