va -- Nature! [Graham's Selection Fall 2016]

"A funky East-Meets-West selection, mostly from the 1980's, 1990's and 2010's, for a change"
On the picture: some mountains between Albania and Montenegro.

Well... I still couldn't resist adding a few 70's tunes: James Brown's Nature with its remarkable lyrics, Gülden Karaböcek's obscure version of Mehmet Emmi that came out last week on our friend Booty's compilation "Altın Kaniş Klübü", and Kamuran Akkor's catchy İkimiz Bir Fidanız...

Some cool tracks from the past decade: 2 songs by US Funk band Vulfpeck, 2 from Shawn Lee and Clutchy Hopkins' intriguing album "Clutch Of The Tiger", Swedish DJ Joxaren's 2014 Albanian Swag EP (Warmcop posted one of his newest videos a few months back), Hip-Hop genius Edan's new track featuring Homeboy Sandman, and one of my favourite Grime artists, Wiley with Numbers In Action!

80's, 90's: an unreleased Elektro Dschungel song, Jatasiri, 2 Romanian synthy tracks by excellent Formatia's Bravo and Albatros (worth checking out full albums BTW), a masterpiece by one of Ethiopia's best female voices Aster Aweke (sorry haven't got the song title!)... and my favourite Blackalicious track from his debut "Melodica" EP.

Find it here - should fit on a regular C-60.
Thanks to: Piro, Joxaren, Luc, Booty, Pierre, Chucks, Wie?Nie!, Watt.
