compiler & dj liam large digs deep to put together a diverse set of dynamite r&b sides, all built around afro-cuban, latin & caribbean rhythms.

a stunning collection that sheds light on a pivotal yet totally overlooked area of american music - the influence of afro-cuban & latin rhythms on r&b & jazz during the mid-20th century. the result is a set which sounds stunningly fresh & unique - a remarkable achievement itself given that the actual songs average at around 60 years old. ‘jukebox mambo’ showcases an experimental era which continues to inform today’s music, with afro-latin rhythms now completely assimilated into modern pop.
