Rrriitttcchiieeee!!!! On this episode of Radio Pocho we feature some sweet Twin Cities based soul music as well as some Chilean cumbia, Peruvian bolero, and some Japanese boogie. Now that’s what I call Pochofied.
Another show filled with a whole lot great new music. Starting things out with a Natural Dub Cluster track from the new Italian Dub Community – Showcase Vol. 3 compilation. Followed this up Secret Archives of the Vatican’s heavy new Barbary Lion and the self-titled release by See-I (on Fort Knox). More great new music from Copia Doble Systema, Kevin Kinsella, Don Corleon, Bandulu Dub, Longman, and more. The Swiss set kicked off in high style by debuting some fresh new Tokyo Jihen (Dai Hakken’s leadoff track), and mixing that into a dancehall goodie from Ari Up’s swan song Slits release Trapped Animal. Old-schoolers Jamaica Super Dub, Jackie Mittoo and Adrian Sherwood helped round out hour 3 in fine style.
Songwriter, musician, producer, and sound tech Kevin Steinman:http://www.kevinsteinman.com guest-curated the second hour for us this morning, and—just like when he was on the show in April—he introduced Pam to music she doesn’t know. We had a great time listening to Norwegian artist Thomas Dybdahl, jazz trombonist Danny Kirkhum, and new local music from the Brian Just Band. We also heard new Femi Kuti and The Black Keys track from the new Buddy Holly tribute album, Rave On Buddy Holly.
