Sorry for lack of new tunes, I’ve been non-stop bouncing from one place to the next, often with very little access to reliable wifi connection. Also, there has been a whole lot of partying going on- dropping sets alongside Nickodemus at some very major events in Dubai, Beirut & Cairo. Later today we are hopping on a boat to play records while cruising the Nile, so yeah, that’s my excuse. Then tomorrow off to Amman, Jordan for another gig on Thursday. Having never explored this part of the world, my mind has been substantially blown each and every day. Making a grip of new friends, eating some absolutely unforgettable food, and holy celestial diety– THE PYRAMIDS!!! I will do a proper post once I get home next week that includes a bunch of the local music I’ve been picking up (whatchoo you know about Shaabi?!?), as well as some floor destroyers that I copped from Daddy G and Nicko. For now though, some proper chill tunes to keep you sliding safely in the slow lane (the fast lane in Cairo traffic is the one which kills you- namely all of them).
Kadhja Bonet, RJ & Mark Maxwell : Latenight Munchies
super smoothed out collabo thanks to Redbull studios
Son Little : Cross My Heart
serious soulful sounds, keep an eye on this guy
Oneness Of Juju : Poo Too
classic afro-funk break, because why not?
Los Mirlos : Chinito en Onda (Dengue Dengue Dengue! Remix)
Peruvian psychedelic chicha getting a nice rework
Major Lazer & DJ Snake ft. Mø : Lean On
sometimes I want to be mad at Major Lazer, but tracks like this make it impossible. Reggaeton-electro-pop
Andreya Triana : Gold (Fakear Remix)
some nice choppy swing on this one from this Frenchie
Phil & Friends : This Man
old & rare italo-cosmic-disco tune I recently discovered and am seriously digging.
Gregory Porter : Liquid Spirit (Claptone Remix)
uptempo jazzy house rework from this Berlin beat bigwig
Bata Ketu : Iroko (Jose Marquez Edit)
roots aka raíces aka good music from Haiti given a special touch from maestro Jose Marquez
Uknown Mortal Orchestra : So Good At Being In Trouble
an older indy tune that I love and don’t know why I never posted before
Alina Baraz & Galimatias : Fantasy
new super slow-mo chilled out electro-pop-funk. The drop on this one gets me up!
