HMR Classics: Richie Rich – You Used To Salsa

“You Used To Salsa” is a classic house track that was released in 1989 on the UK-based label ffrr Records. The track was produced by Richard “Richie Rich” Philips, who was a prominent figure in the early days of house music in the UK.

“You Used To Salsa” features a combination of Latin percussion, funky basslines, and soulful vocals, which are layered over a driving four-to-the-floor beat. The lyrics of the song speak to the history and evolution of Latin music, referencing legendary figures such as Tito Puente and Ray Barretto, while also celebrating the contemporary dancefloor culture that was emerging in the UK at the time.

The track became an instant classic on the UK house scene, and helped to popularize the fusion of Latin and electronic music that would become a hallmark of the genre. Over the years, “You Used To Salsa” has been sampled and remixed by various artists, and remains a true classic of the dance music scene.
