Playing tracks by
Sergio Mendes & Brasil ’66, Miriam Makeba, Milton Nascimento, Peter Milray, Francis Coppieters and more.
This show was 23rd in the global vinyl chart and 90th in the global jazz chart.
Beginning is business as usual for BBD: easy afro & brasil stuff. Then once again library sounds (check http://www.mixcloud.com/tomanek/the-berlin-files-part-1-start-from-the-library too). Also some afro music from the '80s. Actually I don't like the sounds from that decade, but sometimes I listen to afro things from that period of mankind too. Some tired but nice jazz themes included too, as well as some punishment in the last minutes (see e.g. Rambo's Revenge) - on the one hand for the chatters of our radio, and because I had to record the first almost one hour of this set twice, as our system in the small studio has broken down.(Wasn't happy about that after playing almost 3 hours in the big studio and then 3-4 more hours in the small one.)
Dedicated to my perfect Saturdays in Berlin, spending many hours in the record shops and on the flea markets then. At nice weather every people went out in the city and to the parks - and after the rains all the rabbits have came out there! : )
