Discos Fuentes, the renowned Colombian record label, home to some of the best tropical recordings ever made, turns 85 this year, becoming the longest running independent music company in the world. Their vast catalog comprises many different tropical genres, from cumbia or boogaloo to hard salsa, cumbelé or bomba, becoming an essential reference point for any Latin music aficionado. Vampisoul started the ongoing Discos Fuentes reissue series in early 2017, making some of the most solid and highly sought-after titles available again, presented in facsimile artwork and pressed on 180 gram vinyl. Many of the reissues have become instant collector items as the demand was big due to the extreme difficulties of getting hold of original clean copies and the very high prices paid for them. Vampisoul have put together a collection of 12 top dancefloor-oriented songs, as a taste of and introduction to the reissue series and as a celebration to the 85th anniversary of Discos Fuentes. It includes tracks by the likes of Fruko Y Sus Tesos, Michi Sarmiento Y Su Combo Bravo, and Lito Barrientos Y Su Orquesta, and also lesser known artists whose legendary recordings have become classic DJ spins in the tropical sound scene over the years. Also features Lisandro Meza Y Su Combo, Combo Los Yogas, Peregoyo Y Su Combo Vacaná, Adolfo Echeverría Y Su Orquesta, Pedro Laza Y Sus Pelayeros, Los Supremos, Conjunto Miramar, Tita Duval Y El Nuevo Ritmo De Bobby Rey, and Sexteto Miramar.
