Que Chevere! (My Baby's Got Latin Soul) - (3:32) 148 BPM
La Tumba De Fu Manchu (Mr Battery remix) - (2:41) 98 BPM
Keeping the heat on from their recent second album, Que Chevere, Ray Lugo & The Boogaloo Destroyers release a digital double A-side from said long player. The record continued to successfully fuse dancefloor styles such as soul, funk, rhythm and blues, samba and mambo, and none more than on the anthemic brassy title track featured here. Also "La Tumba De Fu Manchu" reappears this time remixed into a meandering percussive organ jam by none other than Mr Battery himself.

Once again the compilation master, Strictly Breaks, is back with another collection of often-sampled tunes, providing both delight for sample-spotters and fans of eclectic collections alike. Here Strictly Breaks Vol 7 features a wide range of thoroughly enjoyable tunes - from the camp musical shenanigans of 'Hard Knock Life" from Annie to Ramon Harris' cool jazz joint "Don't Ask Me" via Steve Arrington's sleazy funk jam "Weak At The Knees" and Diana Ross' bonkers orchestrated meltdown "My Hero Is A Gun" (yes it's really called that).
