Paris DJs Soundsystem - African Mashed Potato Popcorn Vol.9



Paris DJs Soundsystem African Mashed Potato Popcorn
Paris DJs Soundstem - African Mashed Potato Popcorn Vol.9
(MP3 Podcast on www.ParisDJs.com) T.I.M.E.C., 2009-04-10

This mix concludes a series of 15 Afro mixes (9 'African Mashed Potato Popcorn' mixtures and 6 '21st Century Afro' cookings) showcasing the current worldwide African music scene and a few bits from its roots. We've already praised before the incredible work of labels such as Soundway or Analog Africa, which appear here again but hey, their compilations were simply the best of last year!! That said, you might want to expect a lot of surprises in the future, since we've sent to Nigeria and Benin some of our own diggers to go and fetch the real rare things.... That, and new productions with Oghene Kologbo (Fela's guitarist until 1978), Amayo (lead singer from Antibalas) and Tony Allen, among others... so stay tuned!
