“The mix recorded by Nathan Worm and Jake Worm one grey winter November afternoon when we had a nice time with tea and tunes. Just a bunch of proper groovy numbers from across the African spectrum.
No clever mixing just a nice selection. There’s just one modern track in there (Andy Ordonez on the always brilliant Names You Can Trust label), but even that track is very representative of something from a by-gone era.
Music that has its roots in two or three different places. Music with lots of rhythm/percussion/groove is our thing really. Two of the guys are lifelong percussionists/drummers (not in the ‘kit’ sense) but with deep ties to maracatu music of North East Brazil. Another music from North East Brazil forró is featured in the mix with a track from Camarão (Analog Africa released a comp of his stuff). This music features the accordion as the lead instrument. We like music that features the accordion.
Hi-life, Afro funk, Disco-ey bits, Caribbean stuff all feature. This is a fair representation of the kind of gear we like to play out to a crowd – we keep it broad, it never gets boring that way.
