La Onda Vampi
Starting in 2002, Vampisoul is now established as one of the hippest and most respected reissue labels on the planet. New Orleans funk, Detroit R&B, boogaloo, Cuban jam sessions, exotic soundtracks, West African highlife, Latin soul, trippy tropical sounds, Peruvian groovers, Argentinian jazz, Nigerian Afrobeat -- it's all in their deep and expanding catalog. Based in the frenetic, beating heart of Madrid, Vampisoul is ideally situated to access the wild and wonderful music of Latin America, Europe, West Africa and the USA. Since 2002, they have built up a wealth of contacts across these continents. Such invaluable relationships have allowed them to release rare vintage sounds from the '60s and '70s that have consistently hit the target with the music-loving public, and they are also increasingly releasing new material and working with artists such as Joe Bataan, JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound, Garotas Suecas and Frente Cumbiero. La Onda Vampi is the latest in a series of popular Vampisoul samplers which includes previous titles In Search Of The Cool, Gettin' Soulful, Movers and I Gotta New Dance. The label keeps travelling to familiar and new international destinations and their usual richness of sounds is broadened here by Iranian grooves, '60s Czech mod R&B, flamenco rumba, psych library music from Italy, Colombian cumbia -- the present and recent past of the label is represented on this fantastic selection. Today, Vampisoul is a flourishing independent label with a catalog that reveals an ocean of amazing sounds. Includes an exclusive, previously-unreleased track by Brazil's Garotas Suecas.
