Funky Friday - Worldwide Funk
Mondo Internationale - Teaser Trailer
I'm off on a Bank Holiday break at Matt's The Right Side Of Funky today, with a brand new mix 'Mondo internationale'
So what are Bank Holidays traditionally about then? Traffic and travel usually - and with that in mind I've tried to make 'Mondo internationale' a united nations mix of global groovers and tropical treats by blending acts from Nigeria, France and Jamaica with inter continental hops and stops at St Tropez, Broadway and Panama. Although there are earthquakes and a small splash of of bad weather on the way, hot pants are recommended as the temperature is generally hot, fiery and fevered with the final destination being Hawaii (5-0) for a hook up with Sammy Davis Jr.
The full mix is below if you fancy hopping onboard
Think of it as an antidote to Eurovision
You can taste test my musical version of a Wimpy International Grill at the top of the page. Somehow I couldn't seem to squeeze these two tunes into this short haul shakedown
Asiko Rock Group - Lagos City
Alan Hawkshaw - Expo In Tokyo
There's another couple of outtakes here if you fancy completing the set
