El Combo Batanga - El Que La Rompe La Paga (Lovemonk)
18th October 2022
El Combo Batanga
Let's face it, the autumnal feel is creeping up on us and the summer is fading fast but it doesn't need to be warm outside to appreciate a release like this. The tenth release for the Lovemonk camp sees El Combo Batanga hold court for a sassy salsa heatrock tailored made to give the dancefloor an unintended sheen and our lugholes a refreshing joyful dip. Hailing from Madrid, Spain, El Combo Batanga carries the torch for the classic sounds of salsa dura and descarga and thanks to labels like Lovemonk that sound is brought to a wider audience. Brimming with attitude, band leader Tuco Salamanca gives a nod and a wink to the deviants and vagrants populating his world on the the track 'Tuco Salamanca'. On the flip 'Toca la Campana', pay tribute to the dancefloor cut 'Ring The Alarm' with a track that connects the dots in latin, funk and boogaloo to get the job done.
