A deep blend of hypnotic & ancestral inspired house from across the continents.
One of my favourite producer/Dj’s (& all round good guy) Martin ‘Atjazz’ Iveson had the misfortune to lose both parents within a month at the tail end of 2011. The opening track is his heartfelt tribute to them & sets the tone…..
Dedicated to all parents & ancestors for the greatest of gifts – LIFE.
Here’s a small selection of summer & latino fused goodness courtesy of Little Louie Vega & Nu Yorican Soul.
I recently returned from S. America where I was listening to the talented Hector Lavoe, which in turn led me to dig out an old favourite by Lavoe’s nephew Little Louie Vega. The track in question was Pienso En Ti (with Kenny Dope’s unmistakable beats, which Paul ‘Trouble’ Anderson championed & used to cut up ferociously, working the floor into a frenzy at The Loft). In turn I dug out the NuYorican Soul mix of Roni Size’s Reprazent, an old underground bomb from Talking Loud – and they both sounded so good in this weather (especially after not hearing them for years) that I decided, whilst the rays were gracing us to select a few of my favourite sun-splashed Vega & Nu Yorican Soul infused tracks: top flight musicianship & percussion the common denominator as we’d expect!
Turn it up, kick back and enjoy – in the sun x
