DJ Vinnie Esparza's Friday Five

We've known DJ Vinnie Esparza since he was just a pup. He's always had great taste in jazzy, funky & psychedelic grooves and has been voted "Best DJ in San Francisco" a few times. He's also been known to release some rare and tasty sounds on his own Disjoint label. We've asked Vinnie to bring Global Noize a regular selection of some of his favorite tunes. Check back every Friday for a hand picked selection that's guaranteed to make your weekends groove harder-

Here is a selection of some of my favorite tunes that fans of Six Degrees will dig!

The song is called "Booty Butt" and the artist is Ray Charles. 'Nuff said!

Such a hot version that was recorded before the more popular Black Uhuru rendition.

This is a group called The Ordells. This song is so beautiful, it almost hurts.

Cortijo and the gang just killin' it in this old clip. Vaya!

Being from Oakland myself, I had to put this on.
