Joe Bataan - Call My Name

Released via the Spanish label VampiSoul for the European Market & via Eighteenth St Lounge in the USA with a digital downlaod only release where it comes with 5 extra remixes.

"East Harlem's godfather of Latin soul, Joe Bataan, is back with his first album in over 20 years! Recorded last year in New York City's Daptone Sound Studios, "Call My Name" fuses the unmistakable dusty groove of vintage funk and soul with contemporary production style and bombast. ESL Music proudly presents this digital only release featuring instant classics alongside dancefloor remixes from a bevy of current breakbeat-funk heavyweights. The smooth soul of title track "Call My Name" is reworked into a high-octane percussion session by The Voodoo Trombone Quartet, while the anthemic "Chick-a-Boom" undergoes a gymnastic electro-breakbeat makeover by Chris Joss, and Ursula 1000 adds even more spice to the hot barrio rhythms of "Chevere Que Chevere."" -
