I have this running joke with my homeboy Dj Lengua: that there is either bad Gas or good Gas. Although it might be the flatulent type of gas we are referring to, it’s most likely the Mexican record label Discos Gas. You have to buy about 50 really stinky records in order to find a gem like this.
For the most part, Orquesta Hermanos Flores’ sounds more like a Mexican party/wedding band. But some member of the group or producer had the bright idea of having them do a funky cover of the James Boy’s “The Mule” (Phil-L.A. of Soul). Check out the Funky16Corners audio blog, they seem to write extensively about the “horse” subgenre of soul/boogaloo. Also check out my other post about the funky track from Los Socios Del Ritmo which I am reminded of.
I’ll be posting other songs I have from the Discos Gas label in the future. So keep posted.
Just wanted to apologize to everyone for the lack of work I’ve been putting into this blog lately. My business has doubled this month and I’ve been extremely busy. Tonight, for your sake, I found some breathing room. I’ll probably be busy all summer, well into September. But I’ll try my hardest to get these quality sounds out to you people. Lastly, I’m going to probably keep the audio format the same, it seemed like the consensus was overwhelming. But who knows, I am always down for some change. Enjoy!
