Last Night at the Mambo Beat Club

I had a blast last night DJing at the Mambo Beat Club at ZuZu's in Central Square. The crowd was great going to the dancefloor for all the 60s beat, soul, and boogaloo Ari and I could serve them up. I'd like to thank for Ari for a great time. The Mambo Beat Club has unofficially released a compilation album featuring tracks selected by many of the nights luminary guest DJs including: Brother Cleve, DJ Vinny, Ty Jesso, Professor Z, and Ari himself, the Beat Train. For more info check out . You may be able to snag a copy for yourself if you ask nicely.

Here is a trailer for a new documentary coming out about digging for rare records in Africa, Ghana specifically. Filmed by Leigh Iacobucci, who followed DJ Frank of Soul Explosion around on his travels in Ghana. Highlights that are making us salivate with anticipation are: Gilles Gnonnas performing his fathers' Afrobeat bomb "okpo videa bassouo" as well as interviews with El Rego, Gustave Bentho (Poly Rythmo) and Danialouh Sagbohan. You can beat we'll be the first to post when this film wil released.

I know this song and video has been out for a while now but I just thought I'd share it with everyone since it is so great. I love the subtly in performance and in the video. The song was recently remixed by Mr. Scruff for the dancefloor as well.
