Downoad Cd 2


‘2008 two CD release, a testament to Nostalgia 77’s acute and original musical talent and prolific and inspired creativity. Having already garnered critical acclaim from the likes of Gilles Peterson (Radio 1) and the Guardian, he continues to raise his game. This generous double CD is a diverse collection of rare gems, complete with an impressive roll-call of collaborators, which displays Lamdin’s flair as producer, remixer, composer and more. Sit back for the perfect collision – between a host of instrumental pieces and a dazzling array of songs that show Lamdin’s more recent move towards lyrical work – drawing on the stellar performances of eminent vocalists including Corinne Bailey Rae, Bajka and new Tru Thoughts signing Lizzy Parks.’

J.Period & K’Naan – The Messengers

J.Period & K’Naan – The Messengers: “

Some artists are defined by their environment. Some redefine their environment. Still others push the boundaries of convention so fully that their influence is felt around the globe, and across generations. Their music compels us not only to dance but to think, not only to celebrate but to strive, not only to listen but to truly hear.

Fela Kuti, Nigeria’s eminent musical activist; Bob Marley, Jamaica’s emissary of struggle and unity; and Bob Dylan, America’s reluctant Civil Rights song leader, are three such artists. These are ‘The Messengers.’

J.Period, acclaimed DJ/Producer, and K’Naan, rising Somali-born MC, collaborated on this unique and powerful remix project, paying tribute to the lasting legacy of these musical giants. Weaving Afrobeat, Reggae, Ska, Folk and Rock into this genre-bending musical experience, The Messengers stretches the boundaries of hip hop—and the mixtape genre itself.

Remixing the classic work of Fela, Marley and Dylan, The Messengers captures the timelessness of their sounds and the continued urgency of their messages. The result, as fans have come to expect from J.Period, is like no mixtape you’ve ever heard.

Joe Bataan is like the CD title says, ‘King Of Latin Soul’. The Afro-Fillipino singer, born and raised in Spanish Harlem, New York, was as tough as his neighbourhood. His two loves were his gang and music. The music of Harlem split into two -West Harlem was African-American soul/funk/rhythm & blues/doo-wop, East Harlem was Cuban and Puerto Rican. In the 1960s, Joe alongside a host of 2nd generation Latinos, loved equally soul, funk and rhythm and blues AND mambo, guaguanco and guaracha. It was inevitable that a new US latin sound would emerge that fused these different genres, and that sound was latin soul, eventually becoming boogaloo (or bugalu). Joe Bataan was right there at the start, recording for Fania Records in 1967, until 1973, then as latin soul and bugalu became latin funk and latin disco, he switched to Mericana Records, which became the legendary disco label Salsoul Records. The rest is history.

This new CD is Joe re-recording all his big hits with Spanish rare groove band Los Fulanos and its on Madrid funk/soul label Vampi Soul. If you like Joe Bataan or latin soul or latin disco, buy it. Its good. The band are kicking, Joe’s voice is still strong (though wobbles on a couple of tracks), and the production is BIG! The new versions of classics are excellent – ‘Subway Joe’ sounds almost as good as the original, as do ‘Mestizo’ and ‘Gypsy Woman’. He does a good version of ‘The Bottle’, which is a vocal unlike his mid-70s instrumental ‘La Botella’ hit. There’s a kicking salsa-jam, the uptempo ‘Puerto Rico Me Llama’ – nice descarga. I was well impressed by the whole CD – Joe Bataan, the punchy arrangements, the firing band, the excellent crisp production. Like the title says, Joe Bataan is still ‘King Of Latin Soul’.
