Ugh. This is perfect.
Hey everyone. Sorry was traveling and home for the holidays. Now I am back at it. I am feeling super inspired by this video today, so I wanted to share it with you.
This one is even older. Taking it back to 2004. If you are into the global club fusion sound, the this here is one of. your history assignments. This album definitely helped shape my musical taste at a young age, and stands the test of time. Do your homework and listen to the whole album below.
This is 8 years old and still knocks. This sound started in Baltimore decades ago. Then you saw it migrate to Philly and Jersey. Then you saw it become cheese-a-fied but a lot of producers DJs that aren’t familiar with its rhythmic roots. But if you want to experience the real club sound I would look to Baltimore and New Jersey. We are hearing all sorts of polyrhythmic styles of dance music. My faves are Gqom and Dembow, which share similarities with club music.

Todd Terje’s Remix of Turkish singer Nese Karabocek is so delicious I can’t not share it. It’s one of those I wanted to hold onto all for myself LOL, but in this day and age, sharing is caring. Please turn up your sound system and enjoy. Original is from 1977.
Here’s a song from one of my favorite African vocalists, The Very Best.
2012 and still dope.
My inner turn up has been channeling this song for a while now. Def a good one for the dance floor.
