Electro Chaabi Vs Rinse FM

As reported on The Quietus, there was recently a cool musical exchange project between some UK Rinse FM DJs and the point men on Cairo’s Electro chaabi scene: Knaka, Sadat, Diesel and Figo. Boiler Room hosted a Cairo show (which might be archived soon?) taking over Kode9, Faze Miyake & Artwork from the UK. Following this, the Egyptian MCs & DJs came to London and unleashed their sound on a guest slot on Rinse. Download it here in all it’s glory.

Peru Maravilloso

Longtime readers here know that I’m a big fan of Peruvian music, especially the tropical psyche of Amazonian chicha. Excellent UK label Tiger’s Milk records who I mentioned a while back specialising in Peruvian sounds have recently released a great compilation of rare 60/70s tropical cumbia surf called ‘Peru Maravilloso’. A sure fire heater for the winter months.

Buy it here and check out the trailer..

Reggaeton Bombs mix

This is a new mix I made for Isa GT’s Etoro sessions mix series. I thought it was about time I made pure reggaeton mix. Ever since I discovered this sound in 2004, i’ve always come back to the dembow riddim. It’s addictive and producers in places like Mexico city, Colombia and The Dominican Republic are keeping the sound alive on the street. This is a mix simply of some of my favourite reggaeton songs. Some are old Puerto Rican classics – I’m a big fan of Ivy Queen so she’s got three songs in there. Some tracks I bought in markets in Mexico city by people like Pablito mix and the Under Style collectivo dudes who I think are making amazing music, some are Dominican Republic dem bow songs like Dame Leche and ABCD. I threw in Aidonia’s Pon di Cocky because, although its not reggaeton, i love it as it has a dem bow beat showing that the latin riddims still influences JA music.

K-Melia Mokonzi – ‘Bilokos’

I first met the legendary Pharon Kastro at Secousse when he became our resident MC here in London. Anyone that came down to that night or Palm City Social will know him as being an amazing party starting mic general. Few in the UK know that his band K-Melia were a big deal in DRC Congo which he’s now re-launched with co-vocalists Jazz & LT. Their first release is the Starta EP featuring this dirty Congolese UK funky track we’re loving called ‘Bilokos’ which means recycle.
