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.

  1. Shaking stuff! Is the Kulengue track at the right speed? Hmmm I guess it is all about the manic and falsetto - I would love to see those languorous Berliners dancing to your Transglobal Nights...

  2. Yup-it is.
    When are you coming? I need some more natives to show the locals how to get down.
