The Story Behind Sofrito: Tropical Discotheque

One of London’s most respected warehouse party series, DJ Hugo Mendez and his Sofrito crew have built a name for themselves as top quality purveyors of Tropical sounds of all sorts. While putting together their debut compilation for Strut, we sat down with Hugo as well as artist / designer Lewis Heriz to hear the story of how Sofrito came about, how it grew, and how it’s amazing poster artwork has developed. Sofrito: Tropical Discotheque will be out in January 2011 on Strut.
