Ray Lugo & The Boogaloo Destroyers' sound is inspired by the warmth, diversity, and youthful spirit of classic New York Latin Boogaloo of the late 1960s - and this brand new release, El Ritmo De Nueva York, pays tribute to the originators of that classic sound, and also gives us a sneak preview of the sounds contained within the forthcoming album Que Chevere!
Of the new single, gives us just a little insight into his inspiration: "I wanted to feature some real descarga tunes as we lacked those on the first album. Also wanted to show New York City pride!" The insistent piano riffs and cowbell rhythms combine to make this number pure dancefloor material!
Of the flipside, Let Me Tell Ya 'Bout The Boogaloo, Ray says: "I was thinking of a couple going uptown for a night of dancing!"
