Loik - La Sono Mondiale Vol.1

Loik La Sono Mondiale
Loik - La Sono Mondiale Vol.1
(MP3 Podcast on Kraked, 2009-04-28

We couldn't call this 'World Music' cos' the term doesn't mean squatt. We thought it could be some kind of 'Oriental Flavour' thing but then what about the brazilian jazz track in there? Then we remembered Loik Dury used to do the programmation for Radio Nova in France for so many years, bringing to the scene what Jean-François Bizot had called 'La Sono Mondiale'. This mix is perfect example of that spirit. Rare groove with no limits whatsoever.

Ah ah ! Fantastic cover of Michael Jackson 's "Don't Stop..." !!!! But the greatest track is undoubtly "Aa Dekhen Jara" : listen carefully from 29'45 to 30'30, one of the most stupid instrumental breaks I ever heard :-)

Awesome mix, and that "Don't stop til you get enough" cover is bad ass.

tight mix & selection as always from the paris djs!

'Aa Dekhen Zara' ('Rocky' soundtrack) video is watchable there :

Heavy spacey fuzzy psyché mix maestro.

Bon Mr Dury, si je puis me permettre, la track 5 il me semble bien que ce soit Abu Ali de Ziad Rahbany (Liban 1979), et non Sumak de Unknow... :)

Vous avez raison mon cher guigui, Sumak de unknow c'est la ref du reedit;-)

Very nice mix!

I don´t know if anyone has noticed, but the main riff and beat from 'Aa Dekhen Zara' was used in Jeff Wayne´s Musical version of the War Of The Worlds (

Check it out:

Ive always been a huge fan of this album, so its really strange to find out that Jeff Wayne stole one of the best parts from this song!

wait up, i just realized i got it backwards: War of the Worlds came out in 1978, ´Aa Dekhen Zara´ was two years later (1980)!
