The 2 of these dudes have got to be some of my FAVORITE DJ'S/TASTEMAKERS/DUDES ever. No really the list goes on for days for how much the 2 of them have accomplished. They are both putting out this compilation coming out April 19th. Click HERE to listen to the tracks. Trust me this has been on alllll day long. Here is what R2 records had to say ...

The Connection: Modern Explorations In Afro and Latin Music is the vision of Rich Medina and Bobbito Garcia. The two are considered amongst the worldÕs most progressive club DJs, having provided Hip Hop, Dance, and Rare Groove to dancers for 40+ years combined.

In the last decade, they have each fostered intense followings for specific genres and sounds. In Big RichÕs case, itÕs been Afro Beat/Funk/Jazz and World Soul. The multi-talented poet/producer/songwriterÕs eight-year-old JUMP ÔN FUNK Fela Kuti Tribute Party is widely recognized as the very best of its kind, as he has at times carried that movement on his back and been largely responsible for the current revival of the original ÒBlack President.Ó Similarly, Hip Hop radio legend and former Vibe Magazine columnist Kool Bob LoveÕs mission has been to expose rare Latin / Jazz / Funk / Soul / Breaks at his award-winning VINYL IS FOREVER monthly at APT (NYC), as well as at the bi-coastal FANIA RECORDS TRIBUTE annual gigs.

Close friends since 1990, Rich and Bob started spinning together in Ô97, and have branded their musical journeys at their HAPPY FEET party to the great pleasure of crowds worldwide. An inspired competition exists between them to outdo the other by introducing underexposed tunes. The Connection allows for others to share that joy that goes on in their DJ booth. This compilation represents their passion for the rhythm that runs through us all, as well as the respect and love they have for each other. We hope that it connects you to your ancestors, or maybe just neighbors across the street, and way beyond É

NB This is a double CD with 24 tracks.
