Bregovic & Kayah – Prawy Do Lewego

Great tune! Here are the lyrics which I found on a Polish music forum posted by Natakia.

W dużej sali duży stół
There is a big table in a big hall
A przy nim gości tłum
There are a lot of quests at the table
Gospodarz zgięty wpół
The host bend in an half *
Bije łychą w szklankę
Is hitting a glass with a spoon

Cisza chciałbym toast wznieść
Quiet! I’d like to make a toast
Jak można to na cześć
If it is possible in honour of
Ojczyzny w której wieść przyszło życie nasze hej
Our homeland in which we lead our life

Track artwork Download artwork Bert On Beats – Antenna Of Tallinn Promo Mix

This is a great mix to promote an album coming out. A really rich mix of different instruments and vocal styles from around the world and dirty dirty rave sounds and global beats. Not bereft of some theft, methinks.

Bert On Beats – Antenna Of Tallinn Promo Mix by MANRECORDINGS

The Tallinn, Estonia based DJ fuses the rich legacy of UK bass science with the beat alchemy of Angolan Kuduro and other „New World“ genres , establishing a trans-national, hyper-hybrid sound that directs towards the future. After his first two singles „Suomo“ and „Alemão“ on Man Recordings he now presents „Antenna Of Tallinn“, his debut album.

Charles Tox / Galletas Calientes Collective mix

I stumbled across this guy after he did a remix for Systema Solar’s tune Quien es el Patron. This is totally the tune that I’m looking to play at the moment, it’s been going down really well when I’ve been playing at One Tree Island at the Sally. And there’s a great mix that the guy has done as well. Check them out!

Charles seems to be on holiday playing discos in South America – which you can check out on the Myspace page. I’ll try to find out more info on how that’s going.

EN CIRCULO – chocquibtown

ChocQuibTown mixes the mostly-rural Afro Colombian music of the Pacific coast with urban rhythms from the US and the Caribbean. This is the music of the younger urban Black population of Colombia.

Almost one third of the population of Colombia is Afro descendant, but somehow they have not been included in that country’s national identity as people and culture. Although the influences of Black Colombians are obvious in every aspect of the South American country, many Colombians ignore their black compatriots contributions because of many reasons, including racism and segregation.

The above text from Generation Bass.

Podcast: Neo-Cumbia Sounds from Colombia

Podcast: Neo-Cumbia Sounds from Colombia by Afropop Worldwide

Around Latin America, Colombia is known as the heartland of cumbia, one of the most-listened-to styles in the Americas. But in Colombia itself, cumbia’s popularity came and went in the 60s and 70s. Until now. A new generation of young Colombians are digging into Afro-Colombian roots music as a rich source for modern musical fusions. We speak with some of the hottest young Colombian artists in this movement today, including Systema Solar, Bomba Estereo, ChocQuibTown, and many more. Plus, we take a look at the neo-cumbia renaissance sweeping dance floors around the world, and take an eye to the music’s new-found global vogue among blogging hipsters and digital beatsmiths.

This is a great show – It’s some cutting edge stuff on it and Opens up the music with Systema Solar – and then heads into ‘Somos Pacificos’. Check this new shit out!!!!

I’ve been playing this stuff by accident when I got  given some tunes by Vicky and getting a Solar Systema album. It definately restarted my interest in playing out in places again (especially those chunky remixes). This sound is great methinks.
