About the show

Playing tracks by

Kiland Et L'Orchestre Mabatala.

A taster of the Tropical Discotheque vibe ahead of playing Sydney, Perth, Womadelaide, Barrio Festival and Womad New Zealand – mixing up Sofrito warehouse classics, dubplate edits and new sounds on an Afro-Caribbean-Disco tip…

“The original discotheque DJs of the 70s weren’t restricted by genre – they mixed up soul, funk, rock and experimental music to create the nascent disco sound. The Sofrito sound starts from the same point but draws from the tropics – combining bassline soukous, cosmic highlife, stripped-down drum edits, raw carnival rhythms, Manding vibes, scratchy calypso and modern productions that continue in the grand tradition of the discotheque, from Abidjan to Detroit via London, Paris and beyond…”

Awesome mix! Really music I like. Is there some kind of tracklist? Or do I have to shazam every song? :)


Best Mix of Mixcloud, fucking cool.

That phone ringing made me look a bit crazy at work!

So nice!
What is the artist/title of Gwoka monster that drops at 26'20 if I may ask?
Perfect bled of summer vibes to be listened to with good aged rhum.

Jean-Mehdi Guênerie

Sofrito team : if you make a 12" out of that, you're my kings!

I'm with the previous commenter: what is the track that drops out of the Drum Talk thing at 21:47? Outstanding dancefloor weapon. Not one of your releases so far I think, but it should be :)


It's the first Sofrito 12" from a good few years ago - sadly totally sold out!

I would imagine it's probably just about time for it to have a 5 year anniversary re-release then. Just an idea.......
