That picture is crazy.

Saw you had a gig at OCCII in Amsterdam but now it is deleted from their schedule. What happened?
Where on Earth did you get that picture?? You know where I could get a larger version?
Some recent talk about slowing down Robert Johnson’s 78’s https://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=2988168377526999064&postID=1051383810882924668
…got me thinking about your Abin Dunia tape. If the Fushien Kububua dude is the same (seems reasonable), then comparison with the AD tape reveals a faster tempo, with drums tuned significantly higher, and a much squeakier voice. Even on FK, yes his voice is a little squeaky sometimes. Just like you said, I agree & also dig the squeaky voice on the AD tape. But I’ve been having fun slowing down Seidi Alama using Audacity (free download — use the Change Speed effect)… 21% slowdown was probably much too much, but very interesting. Now I’m going to try only 10% or even 5%… =D
seriously, though, what is up with that picture? what is underneath all of the people and stuff, in the bed of the truck?
yo, that picture was taken from flickr, here:
my bad for not originally crediting it in the first place!
hi andreas, i had to change my tour schedule due to timing issues so instead of holland i am going to france. will hopefully get to amsterdam/rotterdam/etc the time after next (next trip is to scandinavia in august).
Ps: regarding the slow-down hausa highlife stuff… i have no idea but i like your style for even considering it. makes sense indeed.
I emailed a copy of the slowed-down Seidi Alama. The chorus, especially, sounds like a real chorus, again. You can separate the individual voices. It was always an intriguing tape, one of my very favorites. I’m glad you were cool with the idea.
I created a Facebook event for the date in Lyon :
See you there.
I’ll see you in Paris.
If you’re into music from les Antilles (Zouk), you will find lotsa tapes here for sure.
I’ll also be at your set next week in Paris. I’ll try to find you after the set.. would be good to finally to meet you. As it happens I might move to Brooklyn from Paris in the near future.
Matt, from Benn loxo du taccu
Lol, I believe the photos are fake but anyway, if you want to hear some cool music then try listening to Somali Music, they are the best in Africa.
When you plan another Amsterdam trip, contact the guys from Rebel Up Soundclash. You fit in perfectly with their parties (at OCCII).
They are doing some great stuff!
Wow! I can’t believe that truck can carry that huge cargo. That’s really amazing.
hi brian, i was at la vilette saturday and the music you played just perfectly that perfect day, thanks, m
Oh too bad, I didn’t see that you were going to Paris before :-(
I really had a great moment at your dj set in Paris
