#RecordOfTheDay “Bel Toubonman” by Expérience 7

Yesterday day we had NY disco, now let’s tryout some late night Antillean disco from Expérience 7. This was one of those songs upon first listening I half discounted being that I bought the record for more of the Zouk tracks, but after coming back to it again I’m really enjoying it more and more. Often music requires multiple chances to sink in, but I freely admit sometimes I’m slow to recognize. Don’t be like me 🙂

#RecordOfTheDay “Malagueña” by Pico

Thank you to everyone who came out to the  La Chamba and Money Chicha show. It was a great night of psychedelic cumbia. At one point during Money Chicha’s set I recognized a song that I couldn’t quite place, but then I realized I was listening to a cover of the Cuban/Spanish classic Malagueña. It’s a flamenco song that’s been covered in many different styles over the years. I actually first knew it as a disco track from the classic New York disco label West End Records by a group called Pico. I bought this record for the same reason I think anyone ever did, the dope percussion break half way through. It’s worth the wait.
