12" Danny Krivit Edits Funk Mr Bongo


Sabu Martinez - Hotel Alyssa Soussie

Nico Gomez & His Afro Percussion Inc - Lupita

Back in...Danny Krivit inaugurates Mr Bongo Edit Series - they asked if he would be interested in reworking some tracks from the back catalogue and he jumped on... wild Loft-style Latin jams…

By sheer chance, Danny had already worked on a rough personal mix of Sabu Martinez's 'Hotel Alyssa-Sousse, Tunisia’, a track taken from the treasured 'Afro Temple album originally released in 1973. Danny just needed to freshen and tighten it up to a standard he was happy with, and the result is pure Latin fire.

The Belgian / Dutch orchestra leader Nico Gomez's 'Lupita' from 1971 is an undisputed banger, this underground Latin-crossover favorite has been causing mayhem on dancefloors for years. Here Danny takes it into another sphere adding extra drama and build-ups, adding and overlaying fresh percussion which sounds like it could have been taken from lost outtakes. Even those who may have heard 'Lupita' countless times are sure to be impressed by the new lease of life that Danny has breathed into it.
