This week on Alt.Latino, we venture into a long-running conversation about remixing classic recordings. Along the way, we feature a new album released by Fania Records called Calentura, in which the label sent a handful of DJs and producers a treasure trove of original masters from the Golden Age of the brash and innovative Afro-Caribbean music known as salsa.
I can already hear some of you reacting to the concept:
"Malditos! How dare you tamper with perfection?"
"Would you repaint a Frida Kahlo masterwork?"
