Info (english) :
After more than one year of trying to upper the standards of rare groove podcasting, we decided to open our programs to more musical experts than just our crew of Parisian crate-diggers. Our first guest comes from Russia, with love of course but also a selection of impossible-to-find Soviet Russia grooves. Here's the first half hour, with a 'Part 2' coming up quite soon, and a little introduction specially written by our host of the week, Ivan Tchizhevsky:
'Welcome to Ivan Tchizhevsky podcast! This mix was recorded in Moscow (Russia) and it is a compilation of old records released in the Soviet Union during the 1970s.
It is hard to underestimate the effort of musicians who produced those records because at that time it was a question of working really hard to release something worth listening. Not only the poorer technology complicated the process, but the Communist party strong ideological control gave musicians a substantial pain in the ass as well. It was a multi-level vigilance by editors on various stages of production which filtered off everything that would not correspond with soviet ideology.
Moreover, because of the 'Iron Curtain' musicians in the USSR could not get necessary information about the ultimate tendencies in contemporary music. We can only guess how many excellent records were suppressed by the communist censors. The advanced music styles like jazz and funk were considered being 'vices of the West' and the Party bosses liked ballet more than music.
However, this mix represents only a microscopic part of vast amount of great records made in the Soviet Union. These records could be considered as a cultural heritage which yet has to be discovered (or rediscovered) by music-lovers all over the world.' Ivan Tchijevsky

Info :
Bled Party : une plongee dans les rare grooves nord-africains...
Pour commencer, entre Fela et John Lee Hooker il y a le desert d'ou viennent Toumast, un groupe nigerien au premier album imparable. Viennent ensuite quelques valeurs sures du groove egyptien, dansant, pop ou bluesy, avec Ali Hassan Kuban, Mohamed Mounir et Amr Diab. Puis avec Abranis on touche le culte, grace a cette cette face B de 45 tours pre-electro datant de 1973. Ahmed Fakrun, un lybien exile un temps en Italie, invente lui la soul-disco-world avec 'Nisyan&' - puisqu'on vous dit culte! Vigon, l'Otis Redding arabe, enregistra lui a Paris dans les 70's, et notamment cet incroyable 45 tours: 'Pollution' plus que jamais d'actualite. Et pour finir: le jerk tribal furieusement ethylique de Bon Destiny, 'Wang Dang&'...
