I bit of music to brighten your day today for Sound Travels. A truncated week here left Monday and Wednesday with a bit of an identity crisis as i get ready to go entirely Brazilian from Friday till next Wednesday. Next week (6/3), Sound Travels goes live at Stone Creek in Bay View located at the intersection of Lincoln and KK at 2266 S Kinnikinic Ave. More info on that is forthcoming.
But the day was what it was-- a mix of entirely random proportions. Gypsy the flavor early with a remix from Balkan Beatbox and another from Shantel, neither new to be sure, but surely good. Especially Shantel, whose fame came on BBC's Radio One and hasn't slowed down. Betwixt the two I hit you with a different cut from an artist who was actually debuted earlier this morning on New Music Wednesday-- Nickodemus, with a cut of an entirely different flavor, showing a versatility evident throughout his excellent new release Sun People, we have a collaboration with Liliana Araujo, a Brazilian singer whose recent work with ST fave Nation Beat has put her in fine company indeed.
A pair of Middle Eastern tunes follow, Soap Kills from Beirut, Lebanon and one from a Balkan crew called Al Jawala, whose sound is a mix but draws from Romanian roots. Both tunes keep tempo in a dance-friendly set that also saw some off kilter crunch from Denmark's Analogik, crossed with the bhangra of A.S. Kang & Sukshinder Shina, and finished proper with some Ghanaian dance pop from the FBS Crew...enjoy it again...
