Sofrito: Tropical Discotheque

Sofrito, one of the UK’s leading Afro, Caribbean and Latin music party collectives, is comprised of DJs Hugo Mendez and Frankie Francis alongside The Mighty Crime Minister, who have consistently combined the serious vinyl hunter’s ear for amazing records with a stylish, accessible approach, rocking dancefloors worldwide since their inception in 2007.

For their debut compilation, Sofrito get the party started with 15 dynamite tropical grooves old and new ranging from Cumbia, Congolese guitar, Calypso and Highlife. Highlights include an exclusive cumbia by Quantic, ‘Cumbia Mochilla’, a new edit of a rare Victor Uwaifo disco cut and firing Carnival jams from old-timers Roaring Lion and Mighty Shadow. The gentlemen behind Sofrito are true crate diggers par excellence, unearthing the finest in Tropical dancefloor fire.
