Paris DJs Soundstem - African Mashed Potato Popcorn Vol.7

Paris DJs Soundsystem African Mashed Potato Popcorn
Paris DJs Soundstem - African Mashed Potato Popcorn Vol.7
(MP3 Podcast on T.I.M.E.C., 2009-01-04

The 'Mashed Potato' was a dance. The 'Popcorn' too. 'African Mashed Potato Popcorn' is a series of selections of all kinds of African tripy and groovy music from all over the world.
This seventh volume focuses on 2008 releases, with a rare 7 inch b-side from Bibi Tanga (France), a new track from Blank Zulu alias the Poets Of Rhythm on the fantastic Jazz&Milk label (Germany), an excerp from the new and timeless Ocote Soul Sounds album on ESL (USA), two oldies taken from two recent superb Nigeria old school compilations on Soundway (UK) and Strut (UK). You might also discover The Ottawa Bros. from Canada, before rejoicing to hear another Karl Hector & The Malcouns ethio-funk track (who'll be back with a new mix at the end of the month), and crying while listening to the incredible Beatles cover from 60s Ghanean singer Charlotte Dada.

Best regards
