DJ Eric B’s Holland Playlist 1 For year 2013
“Oye mi elWatusi peoplez… it’s been a long time, but here it is: EricB’s 1st playlist from Holland! In these last months an incredible amount of rare Latin Music has been hitting the cyber streets. The quality is improving, as witnessed right here on elWatusi, with many songs now being available as Flac files! Great news overall for music lovers! So, I thought it would be nice to offer you a new selection of some bangin’ tracks by yours truly! On this playlist you’ll find Mambo, ChaCha, Charanga, Pachanga, Son Montuno, Guaguanco, Guaracha and Guajira, and even more: all styles represented are what we call Salsa today.
Once again I hope you’ll enjoy contemporary Salsa tracks like Bobo tu te quedaras by New Swing Sextet, and the version of Pintame los Labios by Jimmie Morales. And make sure you check out the great track La Ambicion by the Pacific Mambo Orchestra and the great trombone sound on Preguntale by Grupo Arcano!
Timba is here to stay, enjoy tracks by bands like Timbalive (I just got to witness them perform live in Amsterdam recently …AGUAAA!!!),
Manolito Simonet y su Trabuco, and an absolutely smoking track Sobre una tumba una rumba by Rumba All Stars featuring Haila.
Also find a great version of Lágrimas Negras by Septeto Santiaguero featuring Ruben Blades. For classic stuff, listen to oldies like Cambia el Paso by El Ciego Maraviloso, Arsenio Rodríguez, as well as Pete Terrace. Of Course salsa from Latin America is not left out! Enjoy tracks by Alfredito Linares, Sexteto Juventud and the banger Mi Bomba Sono by La Banda y Su Salsa Joven.
Closing out with some great old skool salsa dura: there’s a guajira by the wild woman of salsa, La Lupe and some bangers by Mario Ortiz and Joey Patrana which are are hard hitters. There’s plenty more of that good stuff by artist like Orquesta Love, Orquesta Colon and Heriberto Y Su Saoco… WEPPPAAA!!
So… Let’s get this Party started! Salsaludos”
- DJ EricB
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.
