As we slowly creep towards the magic number of 100 mixtapes, this week we invite Mr Boogie a.k.a The Vinyl Junkie from Soulsa Productions to drop a new mix our way to round off your week in style. And of course, he doesn't disappoint as the DJ and host of the http://www.mixcloud.com/meltingpot/ radio show delivers a fiery blend of hot Latin jazz as only he knows how. Here he delves into his collection to bring us just over an hour's worth of classic tracks, the type of which he used to spin at the legendary Bar Rumba in Shaftesbury Avenue just under a decade ago, and on occasion now when he's out and about in London Town. There's a little Kenny Dorham and Jack Costanzo, a brace from Willie Bobo, plus further goodness from Yoruba, Mongo Santamaria and Tito Puente. Then there's Cal Tjader, a WHOLE lot of Cal Tjader (Mr Boogie is clearly a big fan and we can't complain, we love him just as much). All mixed with precision and delivered swiftly to our inbox. We hope you enjoy listening.
