va -- 80 Percent Badness [Graham's Selection Xmas 2016]


Sorry I didn't realize I'd put so many songs carrying christian and/or moralistic values (don't steal, don't kill etc!)... Fortunately Mose Allison sings "I'm gonna be here for the rest of my life and all I did was shoot my wife" which makes the whole thing a bit less happy-clappy... 80 percent badness!

A few catchy Rocksteady/Reggae tunes, some Blues/R'n'B gems and a few 60's teenage sounds (the great "Help me find myself" by The Troyes!)... together with Naples' best Pop singer Tony Bruni, a completely unclassifiable track by Angolan singer Teta Lando, the mesmerising voices of Turkish artists Özdemir Erdogan (him again!) and Ayfer Ünler... And one of my favourite hip-hop tracks of all times, Radioinactive & Antimc's "With Light Within", featuring a killer riff by Nigerian guitarist King Sunny Ade! Get the comp ici.

Thanks: Benny, Booty, LeDJSuisse, Derya.
