Today, we are celebrating the companion release to our next archival reissue -
landing Friday June 4th.
This precedes the release of our next reissue proper, the compilation
(Digital-July 2nd // Vinyl-Sep 1st).
The first series of remixes from the Tsonga Tremors compilation is spearheaded by three acclaimed producers - two of which join us this week and provide our sixteenth guest mix selection - the aforementioned duo are M. Baba & DJ Turbo Boom-Boom, who together run the new Parisian label Stima Records.
Their first release as Stima presents a selection of studio-slick and unfamiliar 1980s Guadeloupean-Parisian misses from Jimmy Blanche alongside a companion piece of remixes and edits – from keyboard-drenched sunshine electro-gwoka to yacht-ready synth groovers, no-frills boogie dubs and the syncretic, joyous bricolage that has been a defining feature of so much salsa and disco music. An expertly crafted insider selection of high-gloss oddities and tropical pop misfires.
Their guest mix follows suit - it’s questing music, and there is no mistaking the sense that a complex, untested set of sounds is being thoughtfully glued together from well-loved fragments of the past – always intriguing and frequently surprising – their selection displays a compulsive interest in rhythm that allows even the most curious explorations to return with engaging, accessible sonic artefacts to marvel at.
