Néstor Álvarez - Midnight In Havana (Original Gravity)
6th April 2023
A: Midnight In Havana
B: Kinky Afro Cuban
Original Gravity Records come through like a welcome evening breeze experienced in the La Habana Province with this forty-five from Néstor Álvarez entitled 'Midnight In Havana'. Always innovating, always taking you on some kind of musical ride, Original Gravity is again back with a record that you’ll surely want to get your filthy mits on. With a finger on the pulse of music of the highest pedigree and their ears to global rumblings, the label keeps raising the bar with releases like this. This time around they have teamed up with Néstor Álvarez for a double dose of Latin goodness that is impossible to ignore. 'Midnight In Havana' is a tremendous Latin groover with a haunting flute that trades blows with a saxophone, Rhodes piano and trumpet. This incredible sound is underpinned by the sweetest percussion groove that bears down into the inner workings of the listener's soul and instructs them to get up and dance! On the flip entitled 'Kinky Afro Cuban' our hero Néstor Álvarez takes inspiration from Shaun William Ryder and co. Álvarez dons his duffle coat and heads to a Havana rooftop to wax lyrical on the seedy side of Moss Side's underbelly. Rave On Néstor! A double side of heat once again coming from the Havana streets right to your ears folks! Listen to both tracks and order the record after the stream.
