“Sexy, bumping and full of tropical juice.” DJ magazine

 “The crate-digging, dusting and organising that marks the Sofrito parties is devoted to the end of dancefloor perspiration.” Tim Lawrence, The Wire

“A carnival in a box…. Inspiring stuff.” Jane Cornwell, Songlines

“The Sofrito parties take us on an exhilarating cross-pollinating trip between Africa and Latin America.” Mondomix

 “The soundtrack to a succession of long and sweaty tropical nights in London town.” Shook

 “One of the specialists in music from sun-soaked destinations: biguine, tropical funk, mambo, calypso and even merengue.” A Nous Paris

 “The selection dangerously raises the temperature on the dancefloor and proves that club culture still has much to learn from the tropics.” World Sound

 “Hugo Mendez is back with a mouth-watering pile of obscure and dusty vinyl oozing good grooves. Erudite and hedonistic, ‘Sofrito: Tropical Discotheque’ is explosive.” Que Tal Paris
