The Electric Boogaloo

My newest mix is up here. It’s called “The Electric Boogaloo,” and it should be played at maximum volume. Just don’t be surprised if, once you put it on, a spontaneous street party of Spanish-speaking robots materializes around you.

The mix probably best captures the kind of sets we play at places like the Akropolis. It has its inspiration from a daylong trip Tony Ozuna and I once took across L.A. in search of its best taco, We drove around the city in a 1965 Chevrolet Nova, and had so many tacos we both lost count.

In case you’re wondering, the best taco in L.A. is probably King Taco’s carne asada.

  1. Good question. It’s been 3 years since that taco tour, so of course it could have all changed by now. But I doubt it. King Taco is pretty tough to beat. El Mercado de Los Angeles was also outstanding, and has a lot of shops to check out too.

  2. i dunno man, i haven’t heard of shaquille o’neal gettin’ no taco neck from no bitch-ass “king taco”. . . and i’ll bet you can’t get no double-layer taco (much less the enchurrito) there neither. . .

  3. Bloopy, for some reason your remark reminds me of a conversation I had with a Scottish nationalist who was hell-bent on something or other. “Our nation has had a thousand years of kings, of kings I say. What the hell has your nation produced?” she asked me.

    “Burger King,” I said proudly.
