The autumn winds are breezing in, and so are we at Stockholm’s grooviest hotel – Downtown Camper by Scandic. Every other Friday we’ll be playing our crazy, funky, multikulti beats. That’s a lot of Ajvar for 2017. But for those of you who haven’t been able to get down town we’ve made a mix so that you can create your own Ajvar hotel-bar-dance floor anytime suitable. For example breakfast.
There’s Brazil boogie, Kwaito revolution, Dominican calypso, Malian bambara and the classic Hugh Maskalela. And if you want more come and chill with us at Brunkebergs torg from 22.00 – 02.00. Enyoy!

Since Friday was a Ajvar-night out at Morfar Ginko, Saturday’s playlist goes in slow mode. There’s a thin line between overheating yourself and healing musically the day after. Our recipe for survival and recovery is an angel’s voice with an apocalyptic edge lazy dub style, classic Babylon back-beat, a legendary almighty orchestra, traditional folklore with electronic cumbía beats, the father of Ethio-jazz, latest BBBand some of that ancestral soul*.

Honest Jon’s Records knows it’s ethno. And has done for a long time. The British independent record label was created by musician Damond Albarn and various record shop owners. But Honest Jon’s also owns a record shop in London and that one was founded way before the label. In 1974, by two friends from Liverpool, a Sociology student named Jon Clare, and Dave Ryner, the son of a Trinidadian doctor. Match made sound providers.
Honest Jon’s is funk, soul, folk and music from Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean. It is calypso, soca, Nigerian afrobeat and salsa. Lot’s of it from way back then, but also new stuff from Candi Stanton, Lobi Traore and Tony Allen. This week Ajvar’s into afro and backbeat. So we played the coolest, weirdest and funkiest tunes from their archive treasure. Like Boogaloo-jazz from Congo, golden age African pop and South African electronic Shangaan. Mr Nozinja, who calls himself a scout for Shangaan talent knows the recipe.
We don’t use the sounds of the hip-hop guys, or the afro-pop, or whatever, we’re using Shangaan sounds. The traditional Shangaan music is fast. You play it slow, they won’t dance.
Abdel Hadi Halo & The El Gusto Orchestra Of Algiers – Fatoum
This week Ajvar presents the second part of our magnificent mix. Recorded in the average basement studio. You have the gypsy electro, the classic cumbia, the heavy reggae the afro calypso and the spectacular thai pop. For some reason we’re broadcasting the second part first. So the first one is still to come and yearn for. Enjoy.
