Groovy Goose snips from M-za

March 23, 2011

I just found some older recordings from the Groovy Goose nights from my computer so here comes some nice music for you!

From the first ever Groovy Goose I snipped out this short piece of groovy funk beats. New and old, originals and edits, here and there including Japanese funk, hits from Rufus Thomas, Willie Hutch etc…

This one is from second ever organized Goose where I played quite interesting set blending deep funky beats and some atmospheric HipHop treats. Gotta say that mixing is not so well that nowadays but there is definitely some really nice blends also – and tunes. Gotta take some of these ones with me to the next Groovy Goose which is going to be on MAYDAY!!

And then comes some never stuff. This one is snipped out of the recordings from the last Groovy Goose (March 12th 2011) where we played quite a variety of music from finnish jazz to disco and deep house, and ofcourse these kinds of ethnic sounds.
So this one hour set is all about polyrhythmic afrobeat grooves from the 70’s with a touch of psychedelic rock sounds. These afrobeats and rocks are mostly from Nigeria but there is couple of tunes also from Brazil and India.

Afro Mini-Mix by Shantisan (Afrobeat)

February 4, 2011

It’s about to time to post also some other peoples mixtapes here. I have been lately really into African sounds, afrobeat,’fuzz’ funk, ‘psychedelic’ funk and grooves, and so on. Basicly on ’65-’80 ethnic stuff and new afrobeat remixes and sounds… So, I stumbled upon this Shantisan’s mix at soundcloud and this was a SPOT ON what I was lookin’ for! Whole mix full of fantastic afrobeat with nice grooves and lyrics. I also recommend to check out Shantisan’s other mixes and works at his soundcloud.

 

This mix was done from vinyl as a promotion for “Afro Mission” in Prague- enjoy the Afro sound!!!
