Antal - Diggin' In Sao Paolo
(MP3 Podcast on 2011-06-14

Today we're introducing you to some friends of ours from Amsterdam, Netherlands. Antal runs the Rush Hour label, record store and distributor. With KC the Funkaholic, he's also running the Kindred Spirits label, which released many essential albums lately, from Jungle By Night, Woima Collective, Build An Ark or Carlos Nino for example... Antal went to Sao Paolo for a Dutch/Brasil cultural exchange program at the Bienal 2010. While there, he spent most of his days in record stores, here are some of the tunes he found. Unfortunately no tracklist...
