Temposphere, KFAI 03/05/11

Tonight’s edition of Temposphere was 2 hours of soul drenched music — both modern and vintage — from around the globe, including tracks from such worthies as Antibalas, Pat Thomas (represented here by the mighty 10 minute track Yesu Sau Bra), Orgone, Alton Ellis and a host of others. As always there’s a 14 day window to hear the show via MP3 stream at the KFAI site where the complete playlist has been posted (it’s here too, after the cut).

How much Afrobeat, samba, funk, soul and reggae can you fit in two hours? One possible answer is here, where the evidence is available as an MP3 stream for the next two weeks. Great new tracks from Orgone and Alex Cuba bookended the proceedings. If you care to read along the playlist is up both there and here.

New music alert: Orgone album out now, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble EP out now, new Seu Jorge record coming soon! We heard tracks from each of these stunning new records on tonight’s episode of Temposphere along with plenty else including old school favorites like Curtis Mayfield, Elis Regina, and Kool & The Gang. A two hour stack of incredible music awaits you (2 weeks only!) at the Temposphere archive. The playlist, well worth poring over, is available there and here, after the break…

May 5, 2010

Today’s show featured new tracks from contemporary powerhouses Orgone and Aloe Blacc plus a healthy mix of Senegalese rhumba, highlife from Ghana, Soviet funk and other soulful music from around the big rock. Eric Foss from Secret Stash Records stopped by during the second hour to recount his recent journey to Lima, Peru to look for rare records and to record contemporary Afro-Peruvian musicians. The show is available as an MP3 stream for two weeks at the KFAI site where you can find the complete playlist (also posted here after the break).
