Sofrito Super Singles / Island Series / Percussions & more.
Hugo Mendez / Frankie Francis / Lewis Heriz & Friends
The Sofrito parties started in 2006 in East London - bringing together a love of old African and Caribbean music with a background in London club culture and some rather large soundsystems. Swiftly attracting a loyal following, the Sofrito parties have continued irregularly ever since, testing out new locations and spaces but always with an emphasis on a big sound system and an ear for the best dance music and vibes possible.
The Sofrito label started in 2008 with a run of now highly sought-after limited 12"s (check discogs....) before firmly establishing itself in 2010 with the "Super Singles" 12" series, spreading the sound of the Sofrito dancefloor to the wider world. Balancing a mixture of vintage under the radar sounds, dubby edits and contributions from contemporary producers (including Simbad, Daphni aka Caribou, DrumTalk and Alma Negra), the label continues to set its own agenda in hypnotic and percussive dancefloor mayhem.
Now with bases in both London and Paris, Sofrito continues to spread the word at club sessions and festivals the world over, all whilst keeping up a steady stream of releases - continuing with the cult Super Singles as well as exploring further waters with the highly successful Island Series.
