SOUL FUNKTION Radio #150 DJ Offbeat - Dejomey Blue

We recently lost both Francisco Aguabella and Hank Jones. Both were giants in there own right and we can spend a lifetime honoring their contributions, but I'll simply say that they will be deeply missed and eternally celebrated.

I've been digging in my own crates a bit more frequently as of late and here are a few of the sounds that have resurfaced so far.

1. Femi Kuti - You Better Ask Yourself (Jazzy Gentle Remix)
2. Thievery Corporation - Vivid
3. Gerardo Frisina - Mas Enquer Ser
4. Rosalia De Souza - Jogo De Rodo (Innervision Mix by the Invisible Session)
5. Amalgamation of Soundz - Batunova Scat
6. Cuica - Cuidado
7. Big Bang - Dancin' Nights
8. Lekan Babalola - Oya (Brazilian Beats - Le Pico Remix)
9. Francisco Aguabella - Asi Son Bronco
10. Francisco Aguabella - Cavalie
11. Francisco Aguabella - Dejomey Blue (Catalyst Remix)

DJ Offbeat guest mix on ODDIOFILE

OdDio has posted a new mix on ODDIOFILE which won't be surfacing anywhere else. Pop over there and check out the OdDio's Audio Odyssey podcast series. It's a lot like going to school. Or church. Or outer space. You're the winner either way!

OdDio has been kind enough to put together a couple nights in Spain for this weekend. Friday it's all about La Boca del Lobo in Madrid with DJs Floro and Bombin. Then on Saturday night we set up shop at Malandar in Sevilla. Bebe, OdDio and I will be providing the sounds for what now serves as the most enjoyable Sevilla v Barcalona afterparty that I can imagine! Have I mentioned how excited I am yet?

With dreams of an excellent paella and world class football in the near future, I give thanks for the blessings I have received and wish them upon you thrice in return!!!

SOUL FUNKTION Radio #148 DJ Offbeat - Taoma

Welcome to May! This year seems to be flying by so far and is showing no sign of letting up. We begin this week with a Paolo Scotti 10" on DejaVu that I am loving at the moment. Then it's into some afro funky business before working it out with some soulful grooves. Definitely feeling those sunshine vibes in anticipation of the upcoming weekend in Spain!

Be well and enjoy yourself until the next one!
