DJ COOL BROCOLI & DJ BONGO MAN - SUMMER MIX TAPE
Summer is here! 90 minutes of heatwave jams by these two Music City inhabitants. On the A-side Brocoli is mixing primal hip hop gems on the edge between disco and rap. Slick productions including spaced out synth bubbles and sharp lyrics meet rough recordings of drunk kids practicing in the studio. The lyrical aspect makes it a super intense listen! On the B-side Bongo Man serves us his ever magical eclectic mix of sweet world music. He is a true missionary of the good times dance floor and this mix again shows his ability in guiding us through diverse styles in a smooth & suprising flow. African no wave, ecstatic Congolaise guitars, obscure dub pearls and more rarely heard sounds!
C90 in stencilprinted cover + tracklist. 4 euros.

Visionary TV studio architecture, amazing colors and shapes, dreamy video effects, joyful dancing, children shouting in the background... and of course perfect summertime music, with such a nice and appropriate ice-cream-on-the-beach vibe to it. "Exhibition Kuasakuasa" by Jeannot Ra (obviously from the 1980s) is definitely one of the best and most refreshing congolese videos I've seen so far! Freshly ripped... Play it on the beach! Music: "Hi-Life" by Wally Badarou.
