Hi my friends,
Here is the first part of a series of mixtapes named “Calavera”.
Recorded from LPs from Colombia, Angola, Guinea-Bissau, Haiti, Burkina Faso, Cape Verde, Dominican Republic.
Enjoy the sound!
La Mano Peluda.
My great friend Dustin aka DJ Duste from Stockholm asked me to do a mix for his blog salsamixes dedicated to serious salseros worldwide thirsty for the heaviest and rarest salsa and guaguanco, among other latin styles, tracks coming from vinyl records of course!
Hope you’ll like my selection as much as us!

happy new year everyone! been wanting to do a selection of my precious kenyan collection for a while now, so here it is!! my deepest respects to rickard masip (tropical treats, sweden), fredrik lavik (afro7.net, norway/finland) and miles cleret (soundway records, uk) for trading and selling many records from this specific selection and beyond, without them my kenyan collection would be very poor… please listen loud and share with everyone whom you think would appreciate these very special and unique sounds from east africa!
Don’t miss the first Canicule Tropicale event of 2014 this Saturday at L’Inspecteur Épingle!!!
welcome back to the canicule tropicale blog! as this is our first record review ever, we chose to promote amsterdam’s hardest working man in the tropical genre, alex figueira of vintage voudou fame! Alex released this amazing 45 a few months ago, and since i’ve been playing it every single times that I mixed the last 2-3 gigs, it was simply logical to share it here with you guys! Also check out his website music with soul record!!!
So here’s a mini-interview with the king!
name 5 records (lp or 45) you bring to every gig:
1)son palenque “ane jue”
3)candeia: “seguinte raiz”
4)yoruba Singers “ojinga’s own”
the basa bongo 45 is also like mastercard:
‘never leave home without it”
how did you get into tropical music?
I didn’t really “get” into tropical music. being raised in the caribbean, tropical music was never a choice… but let’s say I started digging deep into it some years ago
when I was feeling home sick and would ask my mother to send me merengue and salsa records
how did you get to Holland anyway? You moved by yourself to Holland? At what age?
I first moved to portugal, when I was 16, the land of my parents. I lived there for 7 years and moved to Holland after I finished studying.
I think I was almost 23 when I moved here…
how old are you now?
what instruments you play?
drums and percussion, decently enough to make a simple recording…
all kinds of strings and keys.
buy this incredible 45 here!
you can listen to samples down here!
Hello everyone! We’re back this time with a little trip to the Indian Ocean, most specifically the creole islands of Madagascar, Mauritius and France’s Reunion Island. Séga, Mayola are at the menu. Beautiful and fresh sounds from this not well-known region of the tropical diaspora. Hope you guys enjoy! Please share if you like!!
