DJ Eric B: Spring Fever Playlist 2012
“Aight Peoplez… Summer is almost here, so it’s time for some more Funky Salsa Tunez. This will be the last playlist I will be summiting from the USA, as I will be moving back to Holanda, mi tierra Natal in a few months. But don’t worry… it won’t be too long before you hear from me again. By now, you already know my estilo, so once again I mixed it up with “Un Poco de To’” (little bit of everything).
From back in the day, you’ll find tracks by the original 3 Mambo Kings; Machito, Tito Puente and Tito Rodriguez. Also, the Fania era is well represented by artist like Ray Barretto, La Sonora Ponceña, Andy Harlow and a few others.
For contemporary salsa I’ve included the remake of the classic track Chango ta vení by Steve Guasch & Guaschará and the track Defiendela by Marco Toro y su Ensamble that was recorded both in the Netherlands and Venezuela. Also feartured are Don Perignon & La Puertorriqueña, and a banging track by Willy Torres!
Cuban salsa is very well represented once again with a few great track by Pedro Calvo y la Justicia, Adalberto Alvarez y su Son and Sixto Llorente y Son del Indio. And to top it all off, I trew in a track that you will not come across too often, so listen to Wild Horses by Joe Cain and his orchestra.
Once again, I hope you’ll enjoy the tracklist.” – DJ EricB …Ahi na Ma!
Often mistaken for a metal rocker because of his long hair or a Hip Hop DJ because of his baggy clothing, DJ EricB got his break in the USA on the Nick Aguire’s Salsa Dura show, where he was able to show a wide audience how he rolled with Classic Salsa Dura. Since then he has played the beats for crowds at Latin events all over Maryland, Virginia and Washington DC and his ability to adjust his music to cater to any kind of crowd has made him a favorite on the Latin scene on the East Coast.
DJ EricB specializes in Old Skool Mambo, Cha-Cha and Guaguanco, and has become been a regular spinning at Salsa/Mambo Socials in the Washington DC Metro area, but also keeps the dance floor hopping at many mainstream Latin venues and Cuban/Timba events.
