Loik - West Indies Vintage Funk

Loik - West Indies Vintage Funk
(MP3 Podcast on ParisDJs.com) Kraked, 2006-02-06

Info :
Du vrai French digging - ce n'est pas à L.A. qu'on vous l'aurait pondu celle-là! De rares vinyls improbales, du Funk en provenance direct d'Haiti, de Cuba, de la Barbade, de Belize, des Antilles et même un zeste de Jamaïque. Un Hommage aussi au superbe travail de label comme Isma'a ou BNO qui continuent de chercher les graals d'un groove qui sans leur passion serait trop souvent oublié.
Allez maintenant "ROULÉ" comme le dit le mythique tube de La Perfecta, qui ravageait tous les dancefloors Antillais dans les années 70's. Ça caille vraiment dehors alors voila de quoi mettre le feu à la baraque!

True French digging - it's not in L.A. that this one could have been laid to you! Rare and unexpected vinyls, Funk directly from from Haiti, Cuba, the Barbados, Belize, the Antilles and even a peel of Jamaica. A Homage also to the superb label work from Isma'a or BNO who keep on seeking the graals of a groove which without their passion would be too often forgotten.
Go now "ROULÉ" like the mythical hit from La Perfecta says, which devastated all the West-Indian dancefloors in the 70's. It's really freezing outside these days so here's something to put your pants on fire!
