"Mr Bongo presents this amazing LP collection of classic originals from the Fania label and their first-ever brilliant remixes. It contains the sought-after and sold out 12" singles, featuring remixes by such contemporary heavyweights as Gilles Peterson, DJ Format, Louie Vega, Bugz in the Attic and many, many more who have enhanced the catalog with their own unique sounds. Like many American stories, the tale of Fania comes from the boroughs and inner city barrios of New York City. Along the way, Fania artists mixed a cornucopia of styles that transcended the boundaries of traditional Latin music and set the path for the genres of salsa, boogalu, Latin R&B, and Afro-Cuban jazz. Radio 1 DJ, Brownswood Records label boss and all-round music guru Gilles Peterson offers up a great mix of Nora Morales, alongside Brazil's electronic trio of the moment, funk carioca outfit Bonde de Role, who have worked with Diplo and have now signed to Domino. Hip-hop pioneer DJ Format produced a storming mix of the Dave Cortez which was a previous sell-out 12". Along with Masters at Work's musical legend Louie Vega's 11-minute re-work of Hector Lavoe, 4 Hero produce a beautiful remix of Ralfi Pagan in their inimitable style. The infamous 'I Like It Like That' by Peter Rodriguez title track is well known from the Odeon cinema ident."
