Exrtracted from Sunka's new Album Sendero out on Galletas Calientes
From Krak in Dub's great Catleya LP, which I mentioned in a previous Round-Up, also out on Galletas Calientes
From the incredible 10" record Ya Llego, released in 2014 by the ever cool Brooklyn based Names You Can Trust
Absolutely gorgeous music by Grupo Semblenzas, which is a part of the larger Semblenzas del Río Guapi association, whose goal is to preserve and promote the lesser known Afro-Colombian culture of the Pacific Coast, South of the Cauca province. I picked this tune for its depth, but Semblenzas' whole Voy pa´allá album is a gem worth your attention ! My best surprise of the year by far... Kudos to the cutting edge Llorona Records outta Bogota !
Just look at the mindblowing video for "Bogando" for a look into this unique culture:
More greatness from the South Colombian Pacific ! Plu Con Pla infuse their local percussion and marimba driven grooves with Reggae skanks and politically charged lyrics for a killer cocktail !
Yet another bomb EP signed by Galletas Calientes, "No Más Velorios" also features a beautiful music video for its namesake choon, check it !
Moving to New York with the fantastic Mimo, a Montreal native currently rocking the Harlem scene with soulful Boombap vibes ! Her latest EP, Mars Took Over is pure bliss, and if you dig it I strongly suggest also checking the earlier "Street Candid" album, out of which this cool video is extracted:
Super funky shit from Magma collaborator Teddy Lasry, who recently saw his work tributed in an essential compilation by French label Hot Mule - tip !
Mad Bay area Hip-Hop with that G-Funk twist... This is my dream jingle track for a dispensary / coffeeshop - all ganja massive big-up !
An all-time Boogie classic, Backstrokin seemed like a logical continuation to the previous tune... What with it being the inspiration behind Dr Dre's Let's Get High and all ...
Magnificent Neo-Soul meets Boogaloo, courtesy of the wicked Miami-based 100% Latin label Mango Hill - if you don't know get to know !
Thrilling psychedelic cut by the ever-surprising Brazilian imprint Tropical Twista - watch the bass !
Straight up Perreo anthem by the mighty Moonshine, finely remixed by the man with a vision for post-Reggaeton Florentino !
Ending this in finesse with this poetic ode to the tropical Guaya fruit, courtesy of the hectic Queen of Perreo Zairah, backed with Lyon's very own King Doudou - Bounce !
