blogging in madrid right now enroute to morokko during a 5 hour lay-over but these guys just gave me unlimited online access woooooohoooooo! :D anyone have any suggestions on where to go in Marekesh or Tangier and where to shop for THE RAI?????
i think this unstoppable fire is actually Algerian, but with more than a touch of morokko to my ears... am i making non-sense?
this massive, massive tune is exactly the sort of thing that gets me hype these days when so much leaves me drowsy: minimal, streamlined, modern, yet completely traditional, with those wikkid tones, that relentlessness... untainted by cheesy mainstream western club dance pop hiphop whatever (like so much modern rai - not that there´s anything wrong with that, but it ain´t the same kinda heat as this.)
anyone have any recommendations along these lines please speak up.
also, run don´t walk to the 1 or 2 record shops left standing in your town (or amazon or boomkat or whereever) and pick up Dusk and Blackdown´s Margins Music NOW.
going to leave the proper wax and wane for others more inclined, but if you enjoyed my Fusion mix... this is some serious (sorry for using this phrase) next level shit right here. post post-modern, post post-colonial cultural politics... forget all that, just beautiful music which transcends borders.
ok that´s all for now. have to go buy a 5 euro little bottle of water before i pass out... booyaka booyaka!
