I have changed from G-Funk to Almondos. Mainly to stop confusion that I play G-Funk style hip-hop.
If you like a bit of winter sports and like your tunes, get yourself up to Morzine in April 2012 for the first ever Basscamp Music Festival. It’s a great town in the French Alps and promises to be a cracking week. Some brilliant names will be playing so check it out. I will be DJing there, details to follow.
In other news I will be appearing on the top mixtape blog Thirty Thirsty in the coming weeks, so keep an ear out for that one.
Some tunes for your pleasure. Really looking forward to a couple of forthcoming releases. Mungo’s Hifi has an album coming out in November. And after three years in the making I’m assured the new Pama International versus Wrongtom shouldn’t take too long to be hitting the shops. Throw in a track from one of my albums of the year International Rudeboy by Lotek and a dub from it’s companion dub album. Not forgetting Mandrake from Resonators single ‘Gold Getter’ and a track from Soom T & Distrupt album from the Jahtari label and we’re in business!
So here is a quick half hour to get you in the mood. Links to the label and artist shops etc below for you to get more joy…

OK it’s NOT all from Brasil. But harder to think of things to call mixtapes than anything else.
And it’s heavy on electronic Braziliain rhythms and I was feeling the samba. Also other latin tunes and ending with an African tune off Richy Pitch album on BBe (Breaking Even Records). No fear it’ll all be a complete change and acid house next. Great version of I Belirve In Miracles too, also off BBE, on the Seven Heven compilation.

Starts with the percussion tastic Nickodemus mix off the Miguel Migs & Mutabaruka ‘Red & Dread EP’. Been loving listening to all the Owiny Sigoma Band the last couple of months, and a great Quantic mix on here off the recent EP. Also an Empresarios remix by DJ Sabo, Quantic & Nickodemus with the Candella Allstars, a spanking new Los Chicos Alto remix, and a soukous style guitar tune with a nice electronic beat by Skeat off the Radioclit compilation on Crammed Discs.
