The Boston-based DJ and production duo, The Whiskey Barons, generally do a very good job of taking older songs from around the world and updating them for contemporary dance floors. So it makes perfect sense that they recently linked up with the legendary Fania record label to do a total of six remixes of songs from their back catalog.
The New York-based Fania became famous in the 1970´s for their salsa and boogaloo releases and is probably the greatest and most influential Latin recording label of all time. Some of the famous artists who recorded there include Ray Baretto, Ruben Blades and Celia Cruz.
The African American/Filipino Latin Soul artist, Joe Bataan, also recorded some classic material for the label and The Whiskey Barons have done a great a job of remixing his song “Fuego”.
