Soweto Soul Music

I've been getting some requests for pics and clips lately so I decided to post this one here. Nzimande Soweto Soul Music by The Inne Lawes. Recorded and released 1969 in South Africa by CBS. Since the day I found this copy about 12 years ago I have never seen one again. Not in real life and no google alert... hen's teeth!
I must admit that I have never heard anything like this south african version of instrumental soul before and after. Influences of Booker T, Mar Kays and Meters are evident, but they're managing to make it pretty unique... and that guy on the organ really gives it a psychedelic touch in most of the tunes!

check it out here and don't dare to nag about the low bitrate. 
A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush...

Cheers, Basso

Booty Carrell - Psycholambada

it's been a while...
but now Booty is here to save us with a bag of psychoactive bangers from Romania! Expect excting Protomanele oddities next to turkish folk tales and a chinese love song - gently served by this connaisseur extraordinaire and Hamburg's most amiable DJ. If you missed the "B-Music" boy's previous mixes for Finders Keepers, The Attic or Pingipung, listen to these later. First grab your skirt and dance the lambada with us. And make sure to book your flight to Hamburg for this saturday to dance the Psycholambada!!
cheers, Basso
