Playing tracks by
Bill Conti, Absence Heard, Presence Felt, Walk & Skank, Clapping Song and Party Groove.
I picked up the “Rocky” OST (by the legendary Bill Conti), and found out two things. The horns were sampled by MIA’s producers and there is also a brilliant group a cappella song, which was sung by Sly’s brother (2nd song on the mix)
This mix also includes my first ever record, the “Clapping Song” by the Belle Stars, which I actually inherited from my parents. It disappeared over the years but I finally found another printed colour 7”. Check out the Youtube video.. awesome. The Belle Stars also covered “Iko Iko” but I put the original in the mix instead by the Dixie Cups as it’s 20 times better. Pure and raw sounding. Claps, percussion and vocals.
Later on you’ll hear the sultry Bollywood “Come Closer” track. Amazing soul that sounds like it came from Stax records, but is actually Indian. Have to thank Ben Gilmour for digging around in India and Pakistan for those insane records.
