I may have a few more CDs somewhere, but some have been lost in the last two decades so no requests please. If it's not here, I don't have it. If you do download anything, leave a comment to let me know. Just click on the comment link under the mix title. If you're the copyright holder for one of these mixes and would rather people couldn't hear them, get in touch. Both are available from marketplace sellers on Amazon.
I said in my sidebar, any copyright holders could get in touch if they wanted me to take down a mix but they didn't.
As the CDs are released by different labels, my concern is a record company representing one of the artists featured in the mixes has decided if people hear a minute or two of song mixed in with other songs and like it, they would rather listen to a snippet of it on one of these mixes than go and buy the original. Fucked up, I know, but this is the music industry we're dealing with. Another possibility is these CDs are available as legal downloads somewhere.

The music is influenced by gypsy sounds. Posted by Global Noize at AM 1 comments. Somewhere in the 70's, the concept of "fusion" music became inextricably associated with jazz rock bands that seemed to be more interested in flexing their chops than in presenting music that was interesting and satisfying compositionally.
Nowadays, in a world which has become ridiculously small, the idea of "fusing" the sounds of different cultures is equally fraught with the dangers of self indulgence and neutered mediocrity.
At it's best however, "fusion" music can bring together the more interesting strands of different cultures into a new whole that is more interesting than it's separate parts. Much of what we do here at Six Degrees strives for this kind of "melting pot" approach. There are always going to be purists who are aghast at these hybrids- but anyone who knows the history of music knows that it is in fact a history of "fusions". In my opinion, this is what keeps the gene pool strong and healthy.
To my ears, Maga Bo's new album represents the best of this concept at work. Recorded "on location" during his extensive travels in Africa no canned samples hereMaga Bo turned tiny hotel rooms and a variety of locations into impromptu recording studios, capturing not only the local talent but the local flavor as well.
The beats are steeped in Bo's love of ragga, dance hall, Baile Funk, hip hop, reggaeton and other "street grooves" of various cultures and the final result has the feel of a vital block party which could be taking place on almost any street in the world. All of the releases on Rupture's Soot Records are well worth your attention and we look forward to featuring more of them on this blog in the future.
Bio: World music is music with truly global reach: 50 Cent, U2, Shakira. By the next day the track has been sampled again by youth 6-time-zones away and mashed up with whatever local concoctions they got going on. Maga Bo's tapped into that weird new force-field. That force-field surrounded him the whole time. I don't know what it is, but it helped this album turn beautiful You can hear his production voice low-end crafted for extra bump, those melodic string stabs, his sound engineer skills in full flex hold together music made by loitering after work in Senegal, Zanzibar, Capetown.
The stories of its making got pressed into the sound. Some of the unGoogleable contributors are African musical luminaries, famous in places where the street doesn't talk to the internet. The overall vibe pulls a bigger picture into focus. Or maybe it is a process. An album like this comes loaded with stories Karsh Kale's Tribute to Mumbai.

Let's just cut right to the chase and come right out and say it. It doesn't look like the economy is going to be getting anything but worse for quite some time and companies that have been hanging on by their proverbial fingernails are now being pushed off the cliffs and out of business at an alarming On The Double - Grooverider - Mysteries Of Funk (CD. While this is by no means a phenomenon that is relegated only to the music business, the dominoes do seem to be falling in a particularly swift manner in our business and the body count is stacking up.
I bring this up to you today, not to be some dire, downer prophet of doom but instead to tell you that there IS something that you as consumers can do to help in the next few weeks and certainly into the new year - It is actually elegant in its simplicity. If you want to support the independent businesses that offer you the kinds of choices that go beyond the bland and the mediocre, then this is the time to put your money where your loyalty lies.
Let me be clear and tell you that this is not some plea for you to spend all of your holiday money on Six Degrees products although that would of course warm the cockles of my heart. I'm talking about making an extra effort this season to support any and all of the indie oriented businesses that have brought the joy of diversity into your life. On The Double - Grooverider - Mysteries Of Funk (CD means when it's time to get books for your friends and loved ones this holiday, skip the big chains and spread your hard earned dollars out to the many wonderful indie bookstores that are struggling to survive.
If there are particular record labels that you love, this is the season to give their music as gifts and to either buy directly from them on their on-line stores or to purchase their releases from your favorite neighborhood independent record store if there's still one around in your On The Double - Grooverider - Mysteries Of Funk (CD anymore.
Buying direct from a label puts your money in their pockets quickly and eliminates any middle man. In general, take a moment to remember what Album) good value the gifts of books or music are. These are relatively inexpensive presents that bring resonance and pleasure to you and your loved ones way beyond most of the disposal trash that people exchange during this time of year.
Few things can enrich a life as much as a great book or great music. It's going to cost a bit more and lord knows we are all counting our pennies these days- but I promise you, if your favorite businesses go away, you are going to feel like that slight investment would have been On The Double - Grooverider - Mysteries Of Funk (CD small price to pay the next time you can't find anything other than the mass appeal entertainment peddled by the big box retailers.
Imagine a market place where the Walmart's of the world solely decide what will and will not be available to be sold. We are not that far from that scenario. This is it, this is the season when your dollars are a kind of referendum on how much diversity and eclecticism a depressed market can bear. All I'm asking is that you take a moment to think about this when you are contemplating what you will be buying this season and where you will be buying it.
Whatever you decide to do, we here at Six Degrees Records are always in your debt. Crazy economy or not, we appreciate your continued support of what we do. All of us here wish all of you and yours, the happiest and most restful of holiday seasons. Posted by Global Noize at AM 4 comments. Bionic Love Soundsystem. I like the way Adrian has applied the "low end" aesthetics of dub and dub step with various other electronica genres to sounds from around the world.
EthnosonicSubfunk Theories has an admirable use of "space" in the music as well, allowing the many Album) influences to breathe nicely along with the electronics. It's a pretty intriguing and unique approach to global fusion, well worth checking out for more adventurous global explorers.
