DJ Lubi Presents: Salsa Dura

A 13 track salsa album (1h 7m 32s) — released April 13th 2009 on Freestyle Records
One of the UK's first and best known salsa DJs, Lubi Jovanovic, has kept ahead of the pack by always taking note of new Latin musical genres that have evolved over the years without losing sight of the classic sounds from the past. "Salsa Dura", or ''hard salsa'' when directly translated from Spanish, is Freestyle Records' first pure salsa CD compilation and its a killer! DJ Lubi has chosen 13 of the hardest hitting contemporary salsa tracks from across the globe, many of which are featured in his sets worldwide! Some are popular hits on the salsa scene, such as La Excelencia's 'La Lucha'. Others have never been released before, like the Santiago All Stars from Chile, whose 'No Cuentes' is a Freestyle Records exclusive! Most of the artists are from the US but there are also bands from Colombia (La-33), Holland (Our Latin Groove, Doble Jugada), Venezuela (Cheo Linares) and the UK (Snowboy). This compilation covers the full spectrum of salsa - from instrumental mambo flavour to Cuban rumba, retro sounding 1960s and 1970s tributes to contemporary sounds. As the saying goes,''all killers, no fillers'' Whether you are a salsa aficionado, a DJ, dancer or newcomer to the music, we guarantee that "DJ Lubi Presents: Salsa Dura" will have something on it to make you smile! Just stick the CD in the player, press play and enjoy!
