The sound of a 1970′s psychedelic freakout only heavier than you ever heard it before! The new Karthala 72 full-length album brings some seriously dark, driving funk meets Afrobeat. There isn’t much on the group out there on the internet. We can’t even ﬁgure out exactly where they are from but tribal rhythms and hypnotic guitar echo to a time when the raw sound was king. Taking inﬂuence from the traditional music of the Comoros, to Anatolian bazaar jazz to the more familiar beat of percussion led afro-funk. This album is destined to become a psych-world burner. Limited edition full-length 33 & 1/3 140-gram vinyl in full-color jacket. Comes with free full-color vinyl sticker and free download card that includes 10 monster remixes! (more…)
This is an old DJ-Mix I recently found on an old tape. I remember listen to it in my old car a lot. Mixing skills weren’t on high level back then but I still like the track selection. It has a jazzy tip on every tune. I still like to listen to Hip Hop Instrumentals / beatmaker stuff.
There are one or two reel distortions on the tape – since the tape itself is old and got played a lot, but it’s not really disturbing in my eyes – gives you an authentic tape feeling… I also gave a little EQing and compression to the mix – so, bass and loudness should be fine now.
So, no matter if you are in the office at work, having a lazy afternoon or chillin’ late at night – hope you enjoy the Mix.
