was the first Latino group to have multi-platinum albums, selling over 18 million albums worldwide. They are one of the most well known groups in West Coast rap. The group played at the 1994 Woodstock Festival, introducing new member Eric Bobo, son of Willie Bobo and formerly a percussionist with the Beastie Boys. Rolling Stone magazine named the group several times the best rap group in their music awards voted by critics and readers.
«Rise Up» is their eighth studio album and was released in April 2010 on Priority Records.
This was playing in all the clubs and at parties back in school days.
That was at the funk festival in the late 70s at the LA sports arena.
Any slow song by Nine Inch Nails. This puts me in avery dark mood.
There is this really good percussion LP from the 50’s. It’s with Mongo Santamaria and my dad Willie Bobo. We had it at home when I was very little and I used to play around with it, turning it around on the floor until it was totally ruined. And then it took me ages to find it again. Finally I found it on CD. And it’s really, really good. Lots of percussion and bass tracks on it.
That song came on exactly at the right moment and made it easy for me to make the next move. I guess Sade always helps.
I remember being scared of the cover. It looed so psychedlic. And when I dared to listen to it «Machine Gun» scared me even more.
This is very tricky. I just had an idea. I will make my own playlist on my iPod and request somebody to play it at my funeral. It’ll be like my last will and testament. It’ll feature lots of different styles and genres, from rock to hiphop and jazz. There will be definitely some Miles Davis at my funeral.
I normally try not to listen to any music when I’m heart broken. It makes it even worse. But let’s say «It's So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday».
When this comes on, no matter where and when... Oh my god!
That was the album I actually bought with my first very own money. My parents gave it to me so I could go and buy a record. They didnt check though what I bought.
Any Latin song, any salsa tune. For instance: «Fried Neckbones and Some Home Fries».
All that posh 80s stuff, like A Flock Of Seagulls. Back then there was absolutely no urban music on television. No rap, no RnB. So we had to check out this sort of stuff.
The recent release of the demo version showed again what a perfect song this is.
