Fatta is the main man from the Soul Stereo Soundsystem, the number one sound in France. He's the one who introduced us to The Lone Ranger and Carlton Livingston, whose albums are gonna happen any time soon on the T.I.M.E.C. label. He's the one bringing some heavy selection of rare Jamaican 45s to the studio for Grant Phabao to operate on. This is his 4th mix in the Reggae Soul series. The previous volumes have all been downloaded more than 10.000 times. Why? Because there's just no other reggae podcast anywhere with such quality on the sound and on the diggin' at the same time.

I got the Blues so bad... that I wish I was dead was singing Weird Al Yankovic in his Generic Blues. This new mix in the Who Is Molesting Laura selections of covers tries to evoke that feeling for its first half, concluding with a highly emotional stripped down mix of Big Easy from Raphael Saadiq. The second half balances the mood with some more uplifting stuff. Expect rare and unusual reworks. And leave a comment if by any chance you want us to stop Molesting Laura!

Papa said do read up. Martin Perna, founder of the legendary Antibalas, now resides in Nicaragua, and when visiting us this summer in Paris, promised he'd find a way to send a selection of some Afro-Nicaraguan grooves to rock our earplugs. Less than a month my mailbox goes ding dong and soon I'm downloading music with the enthousiasm of a kid opening a christmas present. The package definitively delivers and we'll all be jumping and rocking to the pulse of Afro-Nicaraguan music from Bluefields, Nicaragua! It's music you won't hear on the radio coming from the heart of Central America, but not music you won't find on the internet... thanks to Paris DJs growing family of musicians, producers and DJs from all over the globe!! Martin Perna recently released a fantastic third album from his Afro-Latin project Ocote Soul Sounds and Adrian Quesada (on the Eighteen Street Lounge label) and should be touring in Europe early 2010...

Tracklisting :
01. Sabu El Cat Man - Monkey Point Girls
02. Sabu El Cat Man - Live Your Life
03. Mango Ghost - Fyah in Bluefields
04. Rondon Orchestra - Lion Pon It
