Dj Kanada Kaosz from The Qualitons - Soul Beat 2010
(MP3 Podcast on www.ParisDJs.com) 2010-11-05

Thanks to Tobias Kirmayer's label Tramp Records we've been introduced to the fantastic Hungarian funk from The Qualitons, a Budapest collective assembled by DJ/producer Kanada Kaosz after seeing bands such as The Whitefield Brothers smashing minds on stage in 2007. Their album Panoramic Tymes released last september is an incendiary blend of funk, afro, 60's beat and garage rock grooves, mostly intrumental with a couple of vocal tunes, which we cannot advise you enough to buy it on vinyl before it's sold out! DJ Kanada Kaosz cooked this tight and mixed introduction to the band's sounds to get you in the right mind, and should be back quite soon with some Hungarian psybeat delicatessen!
