The Bugalu Foundation collective are not to be messed with when it comes to funky Afro-Latin soul-funk. Taking inspiration from many different genres between South America and Africa, this is some truly dope material, and a little bit of a breath of fresh air. "Rocksteady Bugalu" is the ultimate hybrid, a tune that starts off with a Cuban swing jazz but that quickly develops a noticeable dubwise twist which takes us back to Jamaica. "La Cadrena" is a more traditional Cuban-style ballad, complete with blasting trumpets, those utterly additive piano keys and vocals that just call for you to hop on a plane and cross that pond over to the Caribbean...
