Chico Hamilton - The Alternative Dimensions of EL Chico - 2x12" Vinyl Release " SPECIAL CLASSIC "

from Atypical-dopeness

Over the years. Chico Hamilton has had series of dance floor successes: from his signature song "Conquistadors" (from his El Chico album on Impulse) to the Brazilian influenced "Strut" (from his Elektra Nomad outing). which became so successful on the Northern Soul Scene that it had its own original dance!

Recently his groove has been rediscovered and re-Fuzed: from Thievery Corporation's inclusion of "For Mods Only" (from Chico's album The Dealer) on Sounds From The Verve Hi-Fito Rong Music's 12" release of "Kerry's Caravan" by Mudd & Chico Hamilton to Mark De Clive-Lowe's take on Chico's classic 60's track "El Toro" (from the impulsive! Project); Chico's stature amongst tastemakers in DJ culture is long-standing and profound.

More recently Chico has turned the tables recording his own arrangements of Joaquin 'Joe' Claussell's "Je Ka Jo" and Blaze's "Elevation". What you hold in our hands, this Alternative Dimensions of El Chico, spearheaded by SoulFeast (Brian Michel Bacchus & Joaquin 'Joe' Claussell), is a sampling of the Chico Hamilton continuum. On a musical journey soon to enter its 86th year. El Chico is soon to be rocking a dance floor near you. Be sure to hold on tight as this excursion continues because THE CONQUIS-TADOR will ride again!!
