Once again there are retro design styles running around – they come in a lot of different forms as well …

… and yes the design styles and the music below are not quite from complimentary sources or eras but, well! you get the drift …

The past reurns in so many different ways. It is good that it gets a rewrite, the present taking from what has been and giving it its own slant.

There are old moods that come along every once in a while, not so mcuh laboured or tired, sometimes comfortable and comforting. They take you off to another time.

There are days when the textures of rust are something more … they take you along and bring back those memories of times when there was not so much comfort as something easier …

A patchwork history – 4 – the world and its music

a kwaito mix

international 2 step
Between 1981 and 1982 I lived in Africa, in Maseru, Lesotho. While I was there I did a few strange things. The biggest was to marry a Jamaican woman who became the mother of my children – Shakira and Monique. Something else that was acquired while I was there was a further appreciation of African music. To a slight appreciation of highlife I added a liking for Makossa, Kwaito, later having made friends with a few people from the french speaking Caribbean I added a liking for Zouk. Acquiring friends even later from Angola and beyond that love of Zouk had backing from Kizomba and Kuduro.

First of all – to Francis, Motsi and all of the friends we made, to those we lost, to those friends we still have to make … oareng! sala hantle, tsamaya hantle …

But Africa and the Caribbean are not the only areas covered – there is a wealth of music from Europe as well to look at and so here is a Balkan mix to swing through.

and more from a slightly mashed world

here music from all over the world flavours dancefloor interest – giving something new to funk, house, trance and the like.
