Que Chevere! (My Baby's Got Latin Soul)

A 2 track latin soul single (6m 14s) — released November 17th 2014 on Freestyle Records

Ray Lugo & The Boogaloo Destroyers are the premier contemporary boogaloo and latin soul outfit working today. Their sound is inspired by the warmth and youthful spirit of classic New York Latin Boogaloo of the late 1960s. That became even more evident when the band were invited to appear at the Fania Recordings recent anniversary celebrations in New York - a fine and fitting endorsement from the crucible of boogaloo music.

Que Chevere! (My Babys Got Latin Soul) is the title track from the band's most recent album, and it's released here in a pairing with a fantastic reworking of another album track La Tumba De Fu Manchu by Athens based producer and DJ, Mr Batterey (Stamy Papadomanolakis), who explains that "the atmospheric sound of cumbia, combined with the organ keys and the woodwind instruments sounded so fresh and transported me into a exotic paradise of sounds".

Ray Lugo did it again! Seems that he never fails. - Quincy Jointz

La Tumba De Fu Manchu IS THE ONE. Wonderful - Steve Williams UK Vibe

Both songs are simply mind-blowing... Mr Battery blesses us with something truly ingenious on his remix of "La Tumba De Fu Manchu"... - Mike Fossati Spirit of House

Ray Lugo & The Boogaloo Destroyers is the unique credible supplier of latin-boogaloo!! Hot! - Black Mighty Wax Gru Radio

Ray Lugo is one of my favorite producers of today. I love everything he does! Great tune, and I like the b-side as well. - DJ Andujar Peace & Rhythm/USA

Ray is my latin soul brother number #1 .. This single is destined for big spins and heavy rotation !! - DJ TOON Eastside Radio

This single goes in strong! Que Chevere! is nothing more than what you would expect from the modern masters of Ray Lugo & The Boogaloo Destroyers. But its the Mr Battery remix that stands out as the gem... immediately playable, this will be in my box for a while! - Pimpernel Jones Herma Puma
