Excited for Secousse this Friday at Notting Hill Arts Club. From France, a live show from the amazing Ize Teixeira. After they tore a hole at Secousse’s sister club in Paris, we had to get them over to London, Ize and his band mash up a crazy tropical soup of blazing Afro-caribbean-Soukous pressure ESPECIALLY Funana […]

From deep Texas, Orion’s latest Animus EP is a sweet new set of berserkly infectious 3ball laced dubstep bombs. Taking his trademark crunked out latin cutup sound, he explores the bass heavy link between dubstep and Tribal guarachero with a deft touch. And don’t sleep on Orion’s Carajo Colombia EP with the amazing Orion edit […]
Not content with slaying Secousse with his South African township ghetto funk on a monthly basis, my Secousse fellow resident soldier Moroka is proving to have a tight production touch. Check out his remix of Fraudian Slip and his excellent Kawaito Duppy mix for more proof. Big Nuz’s (two year old!)Umlilo is still one of […]
Lamin Fofana and I have teamed up with our friends Armel, Yorrick, and Antonio to bring the world a new place to congregate and enjoy the sounds of the club from an African perspective. Special Guest BBrave from Akwaaba Music. My ramblings and more info here. And facebook fun here.
I’ve been playing Wendy Sulca tracks for a couple of years now at Secousse, which are generally met with confused looks but we love it. Today I was fairly surprised to see that VBS have made a short film (above) looking at her life as a poverty stricken Andean music child superstar in not only […]
Its been a slightly overlong hiatus but I’ve eventually gotten around to making a short mix of some Arabic music I’ve been listening to a lot in the last year. Mostly tracks from the Maghreb area, especially Morocco, Tunisia & Algeria as well as a couple from the middle east. This mix was inspired by […]
Takinging a break from an Entourage marathon I thought I’d share a few things I’ve been into recently. New York’s Cool Places Sound System’s visual Tumblr library site is a well worth a bookmark for a cool selection of images and videos that you might well like if you read this blog. Check out this […]
Previewed on Sinden’s show last week, a hot new release on Masalacism courtesy of Botswana’s Ruff Ridims powerhouse that brought us the Ghetto Bassquake favourite, Skeat, among others. Batida’s excellent DJ Mpula’s brings his sweet hypnotisingly melodic production to a track that’s sparse drums roll hard for the dance floor. Heat. Available to download Jan […]
A little while back I posted a film by John Pilger, an amazing documentary film maker who’s last film uncovered some ugly truths about US foriegn policy in Latin America. His latest film, one of my favourite of last year, again oddly but pleasingly was screened on the horrifically mainstream/embaressingly dumbed down TV channel, ITV. […]
