– AFRICA WAKBARR (Vol. II) > say : killer !!!

Okay, here?s another – requested – collection of African songs, funk tracks and ballads. Although the mixtape is compiled pretty much at random, some tracks were passed to me less randomly by my friend Fred de Vries, who lives in Johannesburg, South Africa. He introduced me to local poet Lesego Rampolokeng and to the South African rap crew Skwatta Kamp. I think Rampolokeng?s THE HALF RANTHOLOGY (2002) is an awesome record ? his use of (free) jazz and reggae samples, combined with his vocal skills and a deep consciousness of social and historical issues leave you breathless. I am also impressed by the great Geraldo Pino. I had never heard of the guy, but Soundway records ( recently re-released two early seventies albums: LET?S HAVE A PARTY and AFRO SOCO SOUL LIVE. I think this music is cool, funky, direct and great to dance to. When Fela Kuti saw them play live he realized how his own band should sound. These songs are held together by some famous ballads like ?Aduna Jarul Naawo?, a couple of beautiful Ethiopian tracks (11 & 12) and pop friendly songs from Salif Keita and Keng Godefroy. Sobanza Mimanisa is o­ne of the Congotronics acts ? the surprise of this year. After releasing Konono last year, Belgian label Crammed Discs now released another compilation that includes nine bands from the urban jungles of Congo and Angola. Amazing stuff ? and there?s a wonderful dvd included! ( Perhaps this African collection is a little less psychedelic than Africa Wakbarr Volume I, yet it contains the greatest tunes.

Nyahbinghi music was mainly heard and performed as ?grounations?: meetings in Rastafarian camps such as The Dungle and Wareika Hill in Jamaica. The hand drumming and vocal chants are said to have descended from traditional African dances. In the fifties this music gained some attention when musicologists like Edward Seaga made field recordings of Nyahbinghi sessions. In this mix I have collected songs and instrumentals by legendary hand drummer Count Ossie (1926-1976), saxophonist Cedric ?Im? Brooks (1943) and others, like trombonist Rico Rodriguez, vocalist Roland Downer en organ wizard Jackie Mittoo. Their music had an enormous influence o­n later ska and reggae music. Nyahbinghi pioneer Count Ossie was a musical and spiritual genius. He died in 1976 in a weird accident during a cricket match in Kingston when a storm panicked the crowd. Much has been said about the religious basis of Nyahbinghi, however, o­nly few people realize this music also paid tribute to Sun Ra, whose free floating space jazz and singular mythology coincided perfectly with the Rastafarian perspective of Jamaican camp musicians. In a 2002 interview Cedric Brooks elaborated o­n this theme:
?I always wanted to do the jazz situation? In that period we got introduced to Ethiopian music? so my sound was different, with that Caribbean flavour which surprised people and which they liked. Then I met Sonny Rollins, who was actually my first influence. And we went to Sun Ra, which really got me right back into the whole kind of vibes, because they were playing jazz, but it was a mixture of all the jazz styles, because they had some really great musicians with them. The energy of the music expressed the philosophy Sun Ra was talking about. I was very much taken with that, I was over-awed by it. They had a discipline, and actually I was trying to get involved in it, but I had to wait to go through the steps that were necessary. When I left the US to come back home to Jamaica, I decided to pursue the music in that way of Sun Ra. We used to dress up in African robes and everybody thought we were crazy. And we went up to the hills, to play with Count Ossie. So o­n Sundays we would go up and do some jazz, with the drums and everything ? we just played, like a grounation situation?.

Recently I have been reading a couple of books o­n the history of jazz, like Robert Gottlieb?s (ed.) Reading Jazz (1997), Ted Gioia?s The History Of Jazz (1997), Ian Carr?s Miles Davis. The Definitive Biography (1982) and I re-read John Szwed?s marvellous biography of Sun Ra, Space Is The Place. The Lives and Times of Sun Ra (1997). The theme of ?soundtracks? struck me. When Katrina hit New Orleans I decided it was time to start reading some unread books from my library ? they had to be about jazz. Reading served as a mental soundtrack for the New Orleans events. I also played a lot of jazz and jazzy tunes in my house during that period ? they provided another soundtrack, this time to accompany the hours of reading. Anyway, this mixtape offers a jazzy atmosphere. Which brings me to the most important question and I need your advice o­n this: what?s the best biography of Charlie Parker? I?m about to buy o­ne, but I can?t figure out which o­ne. So please email me. Thanks.

Something wicked this way comes : killer essential mixes

DJ Shadow – 30th March 2003

What the fuck! Radio 1’s website conveniently seems to miss this o­ne out, despite having all the others for this year! Never mind, eh…..

Anyway…. the mix….. well, sort of split down the middle, with loads of hip hop for the first hour and then goes into older, more obscure tracks for the second half. A good mix and a must for any DJ Shadow fan.

Unkle Sounds – 6th January 2002

Woohoo! I actually found a tracklisting….. not had much luck with that today. What can I say, it’s an Unkle mix set. If you like Unkle and haven’t got it already, you need it. If you’ve already got Big Brother is Watching you might not want to bother as it’s the same mix.

Yeah, that pissed me off to say the least when I bought it!

Krafty Kuts – 27th February 2005

Krafty Kuts used to be my hero, but unfortunately he seems to have changed direction a bit and I’m not so keen now. That said, I think I’ve got to stick this o­n my iPod and have a few more listens to it before my final judgement. The first 20 minutes had me bouncing about in my chair but I got a bit bored after that and didn’t listen much further, but having just flicked through it and checked the tracklisting I think I might have been a bit too hasty. For o­ne I’ve just heard o­ne of the tracks which takes me back to a very nice night out (though I’m not sure which o­ne, think it might have been at The Glade a few weeks ago), think it’s Alex Dolby, Hazy Way, about 90 minutes in, pure ecstasy 😉 Sort of gets me thinking of Angel’s go Bald crossed with Layo and Bushwacka. Anyway, it’s definitely recommended to be worth the download, can never have too much Krafty.

This is the first of three Avalanches Breezeblock mixes doing the rounds, though this is the o­ne that’s really special.

Freddy Fresh – 1st June 1999???
I can’t find the tracklisting for this o­ne (anyone?). This o­ne’s a cool funky mix, a bit cheesy at times but you just know you’d be loving it if you were hearing it live.

Unkle vs Scratch Perverts – some time in 1999?

James Lavelle, Tony Vegas, Prime Cuts and 5 decks.

Couldn’t for the life of me find a tracklist for this, though there’s nothing too obscure o­n there so might try and list them myself sometime. It’s largely made up of tracks off Psyence Fiction so shouldn’t be too hard. Not sure o­n it’s exact date, but when it’s introduced it says it’s around the time ‘Be there’ was released which I think was sometime in 1999. Highlight of the mix has to be a remix of that track, typical Lavelle remix – absoultely rocks.

Mr Scruff – unknown date

There have been a few other Mr Scruff Breezeblocks but their tracklists don’t suit the mix, think this o­ne’s quite old and the archives o­n Radio 1’s website o­nly go back to 2002.

It’s a pretty good eclectic mix and worth a listen if just for the little adverts interspersed throughout it prompting companies like The Seventies Freezer Center, Morecabme, Chelmsford Erotic Telephone Banking and Shower Jazz (which sounds like it could possibly be more entertaining than any of these mix sets).
