Album Notes
Boogaloo Assassins single "No No No" b/w "Evil Ways (Instrumental) is the lead single from the Boogaloo Assassins debut EP OLD LOVE DIES HARD (2013). The single takes inspiration from groundbreaking artists of NYC's latin music explosion of the 1960's, 60's Jamaican reggae, and the American blues. All are reinterpreted into a classic Latin salsa cut for today's dancefloor

"Old Love Dies Hard" went to analog tape at Killion Sound, one of Los Angeles's funkiest studios, and the results came out swinging. The racous high-energy party that is a Boogaloo Assassins show is on full display, as are the differing vocal styles of all three lead singers: Charles Farrar, Chiquis Lozoya and Robert Mc Lachlan. The rhythm section of William Purdy (pno), Billy Goodtimes (timbales), Richi Panta (conga), Sergio Padilla (bongo) and Rich Rochelle (bass) and horn section Joe Bautista (sax) and Tommy Ouweleen (sax/flute) cook throughout the session, a result of their six years of steady-gigging as a live band in Southern California.

Special guests include Todd Simon on trumpet, Tom Cook on trombone, MIke Benge on trombone and Garth Rodriguez on vibraphone. Recordings were engineered by Orgone's Serg Rios and mixed by the Lions' Steve Kaye, Brian Hardin, and mastered by JJ Golden of Golden Mastering. Photography by Azul Amaral. Art direction by the Boogaloo Asssassins.

"When I first heard the Boogaloo Assassins, I was floored that a Los Angeles group hadn't just nailed the sound of boogaloo but also embodied its mixed heritages. The Assassins span not only the diversity of multiracial L.A. but musical tradtions too, be cumbia, ska, jazz, and of course, soul. Just as the original boogaloo masters honed their craft in the ballrooms before committing their sound to record, the Assassins have patiently sharpened their skills through countless shows over the last five years before releasing this, their debut recording. They've already outlasted almost all the pioneering Latin soul bands that were their inspiration; here's to their continued success and vibrancy as they keep the boogaloo spirit alive for the Southland and beyond."
