I realize this is a late notice, but so was my spur of the minute decision to come out to L.A. to visit young Murphy. It was no coincidence that my trip happens to overlap with another Boogaloo session at The Shortstop, but rather divine intervention, I merely heeded the call. So if you’re like me and desperately need to shake loose some stodge, and are in the L.A. area, then come through and show some love and say hello. We’ll be spinning songs like these ones above, as well as tons of other musical firecrackers, amongst a moving crowd of dancers and friendly folk (look out for O-Dub!). Both brothers side by side behind the turntables = MAYHEM.

Just one note about the songs: I’ve been meaning to post this Mon Rivera cut for like 2 years now as it’s one of the select few songs that I manage to play without fail every single week, and never seem to tire of. LISTEN TO THOSE TROMBONES!!!
