Everyone Back To Mine With Alma Negra


We always keep a close eye on Alma Negra to see what they are getting up to. Their combination of world vibes intertwined with a subtle touch of funk and a percussion heavy dancefloor nous has seen them win a legion of fans across the globe including Giles Peterson.

Their latest EP Harambee (Let’s all pull together in Swahili) has just landed and as always it’s packed with quality world dancefloor vibes. The eponymous title track sees them pay a homage to Kenya with funky brass and guitar, groovy Rhodes and catchy vocals, a clever summer disco track. It’s a track which is also remixed by Voilaa who takes it off to deeper territory.

La Gozadera meanwhile is inspired by Cuban carnival rhythms and When We Used To Dance is the finest Afro Disco Boogie.

1. Blackbyrds – Rock Creek Park

One of our all-time favorite Funk tunes. You can feel the night in this great track

A outstanding up-tempo Disco stomper with crazy synth and bass. A real classic.

3. Marvin Santiago – El Hombre increíble

Salsa is and was always important and we love to dance in the kitchen .

Cape Verdian music always is a must on every afterparty, Slowdance Kizomba

Detroit goodness …One of the best after hour house tracks.

Love this track so much. Offbeat boogie madness.

Morris Day What time is it

7. Christian Scott – So What

A super nice cover of Miles Davis So What on Christian Scotts first album.

This great Track … maybe one of the bands in Philadelphia that were very important in the History of House music. A perfect afterparty track.

9. Moodymann – I Need You so Much / Run Away

This was the reason that I decided to play House Music in my DJ sets.

10. The Hand of Time – The Perfect Circle

Super crazy funk perfection. Music I played back in the days in DJ sets and at kitchen parties
