About the show
Playing tracks by

Let’s kick off 2010 with “Killer of sheep”, first episode of an upcoming streak of mixes. A Night Out aims at melting funk, hiphop, jazz, blues, soul, afro, latin, blaxploitation and everything that is by and large related to the great black music. Each mix will be lead and influenced by a guiding thread – movie, book, news, my own mood.
This first mix is introduced by a beautiful track from the movie “Killer of sheep” by Charles Burnett (shot in 1977 and eventually released in 2007 only due to music rights issues), which had also influenced the last Mos Def album, Ecstatic, which features a screenshot from “Killer of sheep” as its album artwork. I let you discover the remainder of the mix, which blends 2009 fresh hiphop bullets, old school beats, cosmic funk and brass waves!
A Night Out will take you back to the roots with the eyes turned to the skyline and your feet stuck in our hottest concrete! Hope you will enjoy the mix, do not forget about the feedback and spread the word!
