EBAY SALE Numero Uno…!!!


Welcome to my Ebay auctions. These records are carefully chosen from my own personal collection. My name is Philippe Noël, a serious record collector and DJ specializing in afro, latin and caribbean sounds from the vintage past. I also founded the tropical dancefloor events and blog Canicule Tropicale back in 2010.

These records now for sale have all been tested on the danceflloor and/or recorded in mixtapes (see my blog caniculetropicale.com). These records are deeply recommended for tropical rare groove DJ’s so bid with confidence!

Le point commun de ces musiques? La danse tout simplement! La danse et son coup de chaleur qui vous attend sur les rythmes frénétiques de ce duo de DJ .

Né d’un manque crucial en Amérique du Nord le concept de Canicule Tropicale est de démocratiser cette musique souvent inconnue provenant des quatre coins du monde mais surtout et avant tout de communiquer une bonne ambiance chaleureuse et dansante !

Nos deux sélecteurs mettent un point d’honneur a n’utiliser que du vinyle pour leur prestation afin de mieux partager ces vibrations positives.

Il ne fait aucun doute que ce combo saura réchauffer votre party en apportant sa touche d’exotisme qui lui est propre!

Canicule s’est déjà illustré par trois fois au Festival International de Jazz de Montréal avec grand succès ainsi qu’au Festival du Bout du Monde de Gaspé.

A very Swinging Addis mix!


Whoa! It’s been a while since I did a mix… Well I’m back with another selection from Ethiopia, this time in the ‘swinging addis’ vibe! You better get used to these ethiopian sounds since I got really deep into ethio 45′s these last 6 months. I now have more than 200 records from that amazingly rich in culture and music country, so expect a lot more coming up in the next months or so. A different theme everytime of course as usual ;)

Hope you enjoy!!
