Guts ‎– Straight From The Decks (2xLP, Comp)
Heavenly Sweetness 2019
Afro Latin, Disco, Brazil, Cape Verde, etc….

The process of compiling started six or seven years ago, an itch that I scratched by putting out the Beach Diggin compilations. Exploring dusty crates for hours, unearthing those pearls and gluing them together with others of their kind. Bits of this, bits of that, looking back it’s what made me want to return to DJing, and so return to it I did.

Patience Africa ‎– Wozani La (12″,RE)
La Casa Tropical  2019
Zulu Disco

The career of Patience Africa Spanned over 40 years. After almost a decade of success on a major label with her Zulu Disco sound, and a few years in the early 80s experimenting with a more soulful sound, the funky synths of the 80’s would force her to stay relevant in the quick changing times.
