Peru’s stalwart salseros Sabor y Control return to Names You Can Trust and the 45 format with a brand new pair of signature compositions from band leader and saxophonist Bruno Macher. Collaboratively recorded and produced with NYCT in Lima’s Barranco district, these exclusive versions and custom mixes are a throwback to the beautifully raw recordings of 1970s salsa dura. The final result is a testament to the group’s tremendous power as a live act and to the musicianship and synergy formed from nearly two decades of playing together, fittingly showcased on the preferred vinyl format.

An exciting, hypnotic and classy mix of William Onyeabor and Fela Kuti. Keyboards drive side A but the terrific ‘Simigwa Soca’ the brings in side B reveals the drums and highlife horns taking over to accompany this man’s amazing baritone vocals. Funky Ghana! Tim Mee
