Awesome news: the legendary Latin label Fania—original home of timeless greats like Johnny Pacheco, Willie Colón, Hector Lavoe, La Lupe, and Celia Cruz—has teamed up with The FADER to curate a series of next-level new remixes, introducing Fania’s extensive back catalog to a new, global audience. Once a month over the next year, we’ll drop a new remix of a classic song on 7-inch vinyl. We’ll bundle them quarterly on a vinyl and digital EP, and in 2011 all twelve will be compiled on a full album, available on vinyl, CD and digitally. We’re extremely excited to be partnered up with this incredible label and just as psyched for our first remix, out next month: Willie Colón’s “Aguanile” reworked into a dramatic, swampy cumbia by one of our favorite producer/DJs, Mexico’s Toy Selectah. Look out for more remixes from Isa GT and Bomba Estereo, and stay tuned for announcements on future producers very soon!
