about

With this EP, The Hot Revolution, Bumbac Joe stirs his beats into the US cauldron. The title song, "Hot Revolution", infuses electronic beats with Afro-Peruvian rhythms, Venezuelan tamunangue and Spanish bulerias under the vocal styling of Sarah Gilbert (a.k.a Meadow Parish). Juan Tomás Martínez (former singer and percussionist of world-touring Spanish band Canteca de Macao) is featured on two tracks: "Tu Mambo", a funkafied mambo with a jazz drive and a danceable Afro-Latin beat, and "Captain Manteca", an afrobeat global bass groove.
The final composition, "Corazón Abierto" (Open Heart), is and electronic Latin jazz number that serves up a rum & tonic to cure your despecho (heartbreak).
