So, over the last few months I've acquired a lot of semi-hardcore salsa music. I consider softcore any modern salsa, and I believe it's largely undanceable. Then you have moderately hardcore, stuff like Tito Nieves, some of Oscar D'Leon, etc. Semi-hardcore I believe is what I have a lot of: Fania albums, a lot of El Gran Combo, Ray Barretto, Willie Rosario, Spanish Harlem Orchestera, and so on and so forth. While some of this stuff is played at congresses, more often than not, watching video clips I hear amazing salsa music that I've never heard before! After listening for hours to my collection, I have come to realize that a lot of the music that I have is not as "hard sounding" as I like or as is played by good DJs. So, can anyone recommend really hardcore, heavy salsa? Music in which you can achieve that salsa trance? Some examples of what I'm looking for is some Richie Ray and Bobby Cruz stuff (Grandes Exitos CD, favorite is Sonido Bestial), some Tito Puente songs, (but not those that sound like very old school mambo). I like Jimmy Bosch a lot too. Also, Cesta All Stars comes to mind. Does anyone know what I'm talking about?? Gracias!
