We’re really feeling this at the moment. I could be wrong (I was in one of those dizzy festival modes) but I think I heard this for the first time at the amazing Skanka Loss festival in Gangnef this summer. Top nice piano disco from Stockholms Axel Boman.
I hope none of you manage to miss “Welcome To Mali” by Amadou & Mariam, one of the best albums of 2008. The acoustic “Anka Miri Gnogon Na”, from their earlier career, is even better. And that guitar intro/loop seems perfect to sample if you ask me.

It seems like this evening could end up in a blast. First: This years first Oh, Baby In Dub at Metro. Then we have both David Rodigan at Inkonst/The Rumble and Wassup Rocker’s Filippa Freijd aka Filip Mode Squad at Backlash/Babel together with Mad DecentsBoy 8-Bit among others.
