Lithuania's Got Groove

Playing tracks by

Oktava, V. Petrušonis (Oktava), T. Balčytis, S. Povilaitis (Nerija), L. Žemaitytė (Nerija) and more.

Chart positions

This show was 25th in the global funk chart and 37th in the global soul chart.

After playing these tracks in a couple of my DJ gigs, I was asked to somehow make them more available. So, here they are! All proper and real grooves, mostly from the 70s. Yes, there are a few covers of well known songs (Stevie Wonder "I Wish" and "Comin' Home Baby" which was recorded by numerous artists, but perhaps most famously by Mel Torme).
One of the most interesting tracks to me is the "Senoje Pilyje" by Estradinės Melodijos, of which I have included only a fragment, but that fragment is the only surf music from 70s lithuania that I have ever discovered. History! Another great one is "Laikas Nelaukia" released in 1988 by a band called Impulsas and featuring the one and only Dzordana Butkute on vocals. Surprisingly good track! And it's reggae, one of the first by a lithuanian band.
Anyways, I love all the songs that are included here, each and every has it's story, but I'm running out of space here, but hit me up if you have any questions! Cheers!
