For the last couple of years, Orin Walters of Bugz in the Attic has been traveling to the Caribbean island of Puerto Rico. There he discovered the depths of latin music, its many flavours and in particular the rumba. Many travels later, a friendship with the local scene emerged and led to first collaborations – the most famous being Golpe Tuyo Calinda, a standout broken beat track released under Orin’s Afronaut moniker. First releases through the newly formed ABCD Records raised hope for more tracks of this kind, and many years later a long-announced compilation is finally available through Bipolar Japan.01.

As the titles suggest, the compilation features both original and West London reworks. Long sought after tracks like the Relax Unwind remix or Golpe itself are finally available for those who don’t call a turntable their own. Many of the tracks can be heard on Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Podcast or through the sampler in the Coopr8 player. The CD can be purchased directly from Japan or from Juno Records.
