Tastes of the World

The reason that I've been a little absent lately is that I've been lost in the etnomusical jungle listening to african, indian, arabic and latin music. To calm you down, here's some tastes from the big world of music. I hope you'll love it as much as I do.

The Yorkshire Rapper - Keep On Gittin Down (Y'all)

Here is one of my favourite edits. The original Le Frank 'O - Keep On Gettin' Down is a golden rarity and is so strong in it's self, but this edit kicks ass!

Gene Chandler - Get Down

I'm going out to spin some records at a private gathering tonight so I thought this one would be appropriate to get things going on. So wherever you are and wherever you're going... Get Down!

Max Mix

Time flies by so quickly. It's now a whole week since my last post. An eternity on the nets.
Now I'm back with a little different treat for you. Those of you who have been around for a while might remember the spanish megamixers Mike Platinas and Javier Ussia who recorded several megamix-records called Max Mix. They were the biggest selling megamixers at the time. What strikes me when I listen to this mix is how alike it sounds to some of the retro mixes made today. This is a midtempo mix recorded in 1985. The first Max Mix. Enjoy

First Choice - Hustler Bill

Here's an early First Choice gem for y'all. This is from the time before Salsoul, before it was called disco.

Wganda Kenya - Shakalaode

Time for that hypnotic afrobeat. This version of Fela Kuti's Shakara Oloje is magnificent!
