The long expected comeback into the light

Acomeback

And then suddenly, it happens. After en extremely long and aggravating spring, having babies, diseases and other occupying thing to focus on, we finally make the comeback of the year. Probably the decade. And we’re doing it in style. Featuring Greek electro from the 70:s, Control Machete:s Mexican hip hop, Arabic funkjazz from Al Massrieen and loads and loads of Afro-disco.

Lgos

Like South African bubblegum disco classic 707 by Om Alec Khaoli’s Umoja. An excellent and significant contribution to the sound of the 80:s And instead of doing 1970:s Nigerian funk and disco like everybody else we’re Doing It In Lagos with Hotline. A little bit more electro funk and boogie but none the less brilliant.

  1. George Theodorasis – The Rules Of The Game
  2. Vangelis Katsoulis – Slipping Beauty (Telephones Rework)
  3. Deela – Sundance
  4. Mexican Institute Of Sound – México
  5. Al Massrien – El Sobhiya
  6. Control Machete – Danzin
  7. Control Machete – Comprendes Mendes
  8. Umoja – 707
  9. Hotline – Fallas Doing It In Lagos
  10. Soothsayers – Blinded Souls
  11. Los Macuanos – Ritmo De Amor
  12. Busy Signal & Miku Hatsune – Everybody Moves (Andrés Digital Remix)
  13. Kasai Allstrars – Drowning Goat

Poppin a record

Freak Hodja

Freak Hodja! While you were looking away we’ve gone poppin our very first record just like that. Honoured to be the premiere release at Take Away Recordswe’ve edited three of our favourite middle eastern funky disco tunes – now served in a slightly more delicious style. They’re so good they got staffs pick from Picadilly Records.

“Take Away open their account with a trio of storming disco edits from the unknown Ajvar Soundsystem, each steeped in Middle Eastern spice and served in a psychedelic tagine.”

This Saturday we’d the official release at Tranans bar in Stockholm, where the record was tested for the dancefloor. Worked out extremely well for the late-night mode, but we can assure you it goes just as well for the preparty drink, breakfast sandwich or fancy dinner. May we take your order? Off course – Freak Hodja is available for example here, here and here. Bon appetit!

Ajvar at Radio Skanstull episode 55

Episode 55: Over and out 2016

If you’re into that jingle bells and Santa stuff. we’re sorry to disappoint you. Christmas shows just isn’t our thing. And since 2016 kind of sucked we’re all about gathering crazy, funky, multikulti beats with grove and love prepping for a 2017 that only can go higher.

nippon-girls1

We do it with Japanese 60:s pop beats from Jun Mayuzumi, the first ever electronic space music themed record from former Yugoslavia between 1981 and 2015 Yugoslavian Space Program, Cairo force of nature Islam Chipsy and Finland’s very own Dracula Frederik. Our biggest hope for next year we put in the hands of Ahmed Gallab’s project Sinkane. The band has announced Life & Livin’ It, a new record to be released in February. The video for lead single U’Huh celebrates positivity in a world filled with countless not very nice things.

But all states of mind have their exceptions. And Ajvar has one (1) Christmas tradition ftw. namely Freddie McGregor. The one and ultimate Christmas tune worth repeating. So, from all of us  to all of you a very Irie Christmas.
