DJ David Vasquez- Sydney, Australia
Personal Top 5 Salsa Tracks
1. Tirso Duarte y La Mecanica Loca – A Lo Loco Titi
(not the refined Angel Yos y La Mecanica Loca – A Lo Loco Titi.) Yes it’s the same guy but I like the older version, it’s imperfection are like beautiful creases in leather.
2. Joe Arroyo – Rebelión
Now this track is free from beautiful leather creases. It’s a perfect work of art.
3. Frankie Ruiz JR. – La Cura
Yes it sounds like it was made in his dad’s basement, but his dad is the late legend Frankie Ruiz. There’s no one better to pay homage.

4. Barbaro Fines y su Mayimbe-Timbamania
A 2-minute Cuban eargasm.
5. Gonzalo Grau y La Clave – Buche Y Pluma
Remake of a not-so-well-known classic. It tickles my heart.
