Transglobal Express II

photo from Paul Marten

Here is a collection of tracks that fit the kind of dance sound I'm playing out at my transglobal express nights. The music come from a few different countries and most of it dates from the late 60s into the 70s. What appeals is the sense of a restless energy and an effortless way with rhythm.
