We're back with another BombCast! This time, none other than global bass veteran DJ Zhao has kindly honoured us with a peek in his huge collection of pan- and post-African treasures. Here's what the man himself has to say:
This one takes us right up to the electro apocalyptic edge of the meaning of "tropical"; yet all selections, no matter how cold or mechanical, are driven by a prominent sense of polyrhythm, and use drum patterns derived from African percussive traditions. With a few Angolan tracks and a South African MC rounding off the mix with actual motherland sounds, Bombcast 19 seeks to express the musical and political feelings of this place (Europe) at this time, while pointing to a borderless bass future: at least 1 good thing we can all look forward to in the surely fucked up years to come. - Dj Zhao
