After months without news (sorry for that!), here comes the time of the new season, the second of GUARANA GROOVE 4 RADIO GRENOUILLE.
One hour live mix, once a month for the now internationaly famous radio from Marseille, Francia, European capital of the culture in 2013.
So let go for a new musical travel, with special new stuff, great productions from the French producer Minimatic, new awesowe tune from the Mexican Institute of sound « México », describing the sad situation of a great country. You’ll also hear some tracks from Pedders, Doctor Stereo, Jorge Bits, Electric Sideshow Sound system,TNT Band etc…
Strut offers you to Download this great song From Lord Shorty, reminding me this great song from Lyn Taitt, SOUL FOOD in a « So’calypso way »
The guys in Sofrito (Hugo Mendez & Frankie Francis) never fail to serve up the kind of tracks that immediately excite everyone from dusty-fingered connoisseurs to listeners with little exposure to Caribbean music. Such is the case with « Vibration’s Groove, » from their forthcoming International Soundclash collection. Soca mainstay Lord Shorty (who also received the re-edit treatment on last year’s 12″ single) breaks down the building blocks of the nascent hybrid of soul and calypso, creating a dancefloor bomb that also functions as a perfect entry point to the genre. Download the track below. Sofrito’s International

The great label Daptone Records offer to all the Guarana Groove’s readers, one song of their new release coming out on October, EL REGO, LEGEND OF AFRICAN SOUL MUSIC. So enjoy it as I’ve enjoyed listening to this new album from Daptone!
El Rego New Daptone Realease
A true legend of African Soul Music, El REGO releases El Rego on Daptone Records on October 25th, 2011. Here for the first time on album are 12 of his greatest recordings from the late 60’s and early 70’s hand-picked by Daptone Records.
Afro-Soul collector/DJ Frank Gossner had spent years combing West Africa tracking down 45’s by Theophile Do Rego (aka El Rego) before finally meeting him face to face in his home in Benin. From that relationship came this album, which we present to you here in a 20 page hardcover bookcase CD featuring El Rego’s own story of his life and music along with pictures from his personal collection and artwork from his original 45’s. The music has been remastered with great care, and the vinyl contains an exclusive BONUS 45 (while supplies last) of “Se Na Min,” one of his most sought after afro-funk tracks, backed with “E Ma Non Tin Me,” a beautiful and somewhat more traditional song about two blind men who agree to go together and leap to their deaths into a river.
The music of El Rego varies astoundingly in style and rhythm: traditional rhythms of Benin played with modern instruments, John Lee Hooker-esque blues, Fela Kuti inspired afro-beat, afro-cuban claves, and straight-up James Brown style funk. However, there is a common musical thread that runs throughout. The music has a raw soulful-ness and a unique flavor that can be attributed beyond the sound of Benin, to the sound of El Rego himself. There is a timelessness to the recordings that ties all of the traditions that inspire them directly to the grooves that were dominating the radios and jukeboxes of the early 70’s. The record is teeming with breaking drums and twanging guitars, twisting basslines and undulating percussion. But most importantly, the rhythms are all crafted by a man that not only performed, but also owned nightclubs and had an intimate understanding of the importance of dancing.
