Boogaloo Assassins

Boogaloo Assassins are a Los Angeles-based 12-piece Latin band with a sound and style inspired by the Latin Boogaloo, Latin Soul, Salsa, and Latin Funk records of the 1960’s and 70’s. The group’s self-released 2013 vinyl debut “OLD LOVE DIES HARD” spawned the 7” underground cross-over hit single “No No No”, which received regular club and radio airplay around the globe, from BBC Radio 6’s Gilles Peterson to Santa Monica’s KCRW 88.9 to NYC’s pioneering hip-hop Dj Tony Touch.

In 2014 Boogaloo Assassins toured with IL artist Nick Waterhouse, resulting in Nick producing the 2016 7-inch single “One and Only”. In that year, the band also joined the iconic Latin label FANIA Records, with the digital re-release of OLD LOVE DIES HARD and a 5-show celebration of FANIA’s 50th anniversary in San Francisco, LA, and NYC. Hard at work on their sophomore release, Boogaloo Assassins continue to reinterpret classic Latin sounds for today’s dance floor.
