OUT SOON (November 2014)
NEW BOMPA DISCOS 10inch
LIMITED 300 COPIES - VINYL ONLY

SIDE A : Joana
SIDE B : Xintado na praça

Cap Verde music has been getting props lately, and for a good reason. Mornas and coladeras are beautiful, definitely, but we are heading directly towards the « funana » style of the late 80s, with cheesy but irresistibly effective synths and a wrecking high tempo.

High quality pressing and mastering on 10inch. Both sides tested on massive soundsystems and dancefloor approved. Big sound !

Every sunday from 8pm to 9pm.

The theme is tropical music, but you know I enjoy some spacing out from time to time.
So let's put it like this : everything is exotic, exotic is everything.
The Wild is taking over every last sunday of the month. I'm in charge of the other sundays.
