Rich Medina & Bobbito present The Connection Vol.1 (WEB) (2009)

The Connection: Modern Explorations In Afro-Beat & Afro- Latin is the vision of Rich Medina and Bobbito Garcia. The two are considered amongst the worldÃ?s most progressive club DJs, having provided Hip Hop, Dance, and Rare Groove to dancers for 40+ years combined.

In the last decade, they have each fostered intense followings for specific genres and sounds. In Big Richs case, its been Afro Beat/Funk/Jazz and World Soul. The multi-talented poet/producer/songwriters eight-year-old JUMP N FUNK Fela Kuti Tribute Party is widely recognized as the very best of its kind, as he has at times carried that movement on his back and been largely responsible for the current revival of the original Black President. Similarly, Hip Hop radio legend and former Vibe Magazine columnist Kool Bob Loves mission has been to expose rare Latin Jazz/Funk/Soul/Breaks at his award-winning VINYL IS FOREVER monthly at APT (NYC), as well as at the bi-coastal FANIA RECORDS TRIBUTE annual gigs.

Close friends since 1990, Rich and Bob started spinning together in 97, and have branded their musical journeys at their HAPPY FEET party to the great pleasure of crowds worldwide. An inspired competition exists between them to outdo the other by introducing underexposed tunes. The Connection allows for others to share that joy that goes on in their DJ booth. This compilation represents their passion for the rhythm that runs through us all, as well as the respect and love they have for each other. We hope that it connects you to your ancestors, or maybe just neighbors across the street, and way beyond
