Woweembeem Mixtape 13 — Papa Lou

 

Reggae and dancehall special this week. The first 6 tracks are some mystery rips that turned up on a hard drive dating all the way back to (Christmas!) 2005. It went missing a number of years ago and recently turned up in the Bernard Shaw’s office. Truth be told, I’ve no memory of where these dodgy mp3s originated from. Maybe they’re Soulseek downloads from the old family home desktop computer (the 40GB, black Dell that changed Ireland forever), acquired slowly but surely over 56K dial up. The following 4 tunes are newer digital reggae WAVs bought online in more recent times. Jams from Baby Wayne, Buju Banton, Bounty Killer, Super Cat and more.

N-Joy!

Here’s last week’s tracklist:

01. Chantal Taiiba – Mwinda na n’gai
02. Domani – DJely Mady
03. Aby Ngana Diop – Michael Ozone’s Liital Rhythm
04. Roots Rawka – Fever Roots Rawka Dub
05. Black Renaissance feat. GB – Magic Ritual (GB Remix)
06. Trompies – Magasman
07. Shaluza Max – Mangase
08. Umoja – Take Me High
09. Thembi – Sekhukona Bani
10. Mariah – Shinzo No Tobira

First up, big thanks to everyone who came to our party on Sunday night at Wah Wah Club. So much fun in that little basement! Our guest DJs Kixx, REPLETE and Johnny Carroll all killed it. This week’s mixtape is a little clubbier than usual. Drum machines, synths, old and new stuff side by side. More Chantal Taïba, more Domani, the latest Awesome Tapes From Africa release, some banging Kwaito, and this much-lauded, 1983 Japanese synth-pop reissue, to cool things down at the end.

Happy listening.
