Tropical Disco Music

A great record, that fell a bit under the radar in my opinion, from last year was Sofrito's release of the Tropical Discotheque EP. This record, which has an overall "tropical disco" groove, consists of four solid re-edits comprised originally from some rare and obscure African and Caribbean disco finds. From the Ghana disco-funk flavored "African Disco Power" to the Cuban boogie cut "Disco La Calle", this record can definitely get any "tropical" dancefloor moving. I unfortunitely couldn't hunt down the original artists that are featured on the EP, so I would appreciate anyone that can help in that regard. However, with that being said, I definitely recommend checking out and picking-up the record if you come across one of the last remaining copies that still remain out there in stores. I also highly recommend checking out the Sofrito website when you get a free chance. They have posted some very funky latin and afro-beat rarities that you probably won't hear anywhere. Enjoy!

"Calypso Path" is also an incredible jam

Would be really interested in hearing the Atlantic Conveyor rework. Any chance of posting? Thanks
