Loik - AfroTropik
(MP3 Podcast on 2016-12-30

A one hour-long, vinyl-only selection, with forgotten classics and nuggets to be (re)discovered. The mix starts with some Afrofunk (Antoinette Konan, Pat ‘Ndoye, Jean Guéhi); before diving down into the irresistible Cape Verdian pulse: groovy, psych, roots, pop, even nu disco; and closing in Haiti with Claudette & Ti Pierre’s sono mondiale anthem. Loik has been digging deep into his vinyl collection to carefully cook this podcast for heating up the coming long winter nights.
