The next episode in DJ Tron’s great Secousse Ghetto music mix series is a spin around the circuit of 70’s Roller Disco action. Taking in some stone cold classics like Ronnie Hudson’s West coast Poplock and Change’s A lover’s Holiday blended with a huge ass shaking feast of worldwide disco gems. Party Time.
When Awesome Tapes From Africa posted this DJ mix from Ghanaian DJ Katapila, I was hearing some some literally awesome things..pitched up 80s/90s old school house played with kuduro levels of energy laced with Katapila’s own MCing like a London pirate radio station.
