The week I was about to finish the mix I got a message from Julien from www.parisdjs.com one of Europe´s best website when it comes to sharing our passion for worldwide dancefloor oriented music, asking me if I would like to send him a Mix for his site.
So I wrote to the Wire to make sure all is cool and we agreed that they will have it for a week exclusively and that Julien and myself will make it available later. The Wire kindly offered to pay me for the mix but I thought it would be fair to decline the offer.
The initial idea was to make a pure West African Afro-beat/Afro-Funk mix, as I guessed they wanted something that reflected what I was releasing but then, while selecting the tracks, I bumped into few titles from Ethiopia, Angola and Guinea that I have been enjoying a lot in recent months and decided to add them as well.
This mix is also an occasion to celebrate "the Vodoun Effect" Compilation by Orchestre Poly-Rythmo de Cotonou which has been released in France today and will be available in the rest of Europe and in the USA at the end of November.
The mix contains a slower version of the Poly-Rythmo killer track "Se Tche We Djo Mon"
I hope you´ll enjoy it !!!
