Here’s the second of our mixes for this season’s RITMO RADIO SHOW. In this episode (from min 11’15″) you’ll find a 30 min african-inspired selection, exploring the fascinating mysteries of polyrhythms in african music and disco music. Our mix, a vinyl-only one as usual, features some of the records i bought recently that i’m already deeply in love with. We chose to start the selection with the voice of a master drummer explaining the philosophical side of the matter, in case you were wondering how seriously we take this stuff.
We have a killer tune by King Sunny Ade, and then a Joe Claussel haitian production, a Daphni remix for Sofrito, a couple of Jeri-Jeri tunes alongside a lot of stuff i’m very comfortable playing in these days, even if some of them could sound hard-to-digest to some public. Well, not to us so there you go! This is the #svuotazza attitude: play records straight from your heart, don’t follow the hype of the moment, and the audience will eventually follow you (but who cares anyway lol).
