EP.0015 - SOUNDSPECIES - Manana 2016 Special

Our 15th podcast brings you straight into the heart of this year's festival with British DJ/Producer/Musician duo Henry & Oliver Keen, aka Soundspecies - featuring exclusive tracks inspired by Manana 2016 and an extract from their astonishing live set with Santiago de Cuba bembe ensemble, Ache Meyi.

++ How and where was the mix recorded? ++
At home, in my first days arriving back in the UK. I did the final compilation on Traktor DJ but I also needed to do some hasty mixes of some of the new tracks to include them.

++ What was the idea behind the mix? ++
Just to present an idea of how inspired we were by the trip and also how the concept of the festival fit so well with how we've been making music for the last few years anyway.

++ What did you take away from your trip to Santiago ++
Lots of gigabytes of recordings! Lots of new friends, lots of ideas for future collaborations and projects, an allergy to rum!!
