Effectively a Renegades Of Jazz offshoot, Mankoora is a brand new act with fire in their belly and a scorching Latin spirit in their lungs. Both cuts here are true salsa slayers with shin-splitting stomps and horns so vibrant you could light a pipe from them. "El Loco" teases with a plucked guitar intro before dropping into a classic big beat that conjures up memories of Bentley Rhythm Ace. "Boogaloo Tormenta" is far more explosive with some fantastic vocal adornments and a percussive spirit that smacks of a thousand carnivals.
