Mando Fever’s selections of deep Afro Latin & Brazilian house music, influenced by his love of classic Salsa & Brazilian music, has been the center of his musical journey since joining the Descarga sound system in 2003. Since then, and after parting with Descarga in 2010, he has released 5 mixed CD’s on his From The Soul Recordings label, remixed a track for Monte Carlo 76, re-worked Dawn Penn’s classic reggae track, “No, No, No” into a Brazilian Jazz fused remix and hosted and produced an online radio show, “A Deeper Soul”. Currently he produces his own Afro Latin monthly event,Tumbe‘, and plans to release more mixed CD’s along with original material.

with a little help from our friends:
“Our life is frittered away by detail. Simplify, simplify, simplify! I say, let your affairs be as
two or three, and not a hundred or a thousand; instead of a million count half a dozen, and
keep your accounts on your thumb-nail. ”
Henry David Thoreau
