The Panini Has Landed with a Word from Europe

Memphis Millions, Disco Samba and the June Lodge vinyl

Memphis Millions, Disco Samba and the June Lodge vinyl

Hello. That’s English for ‘Hello’ because I’m in The Netherlands where everyone speaks English! I always feel like a dickhead going to a non-English speaking country flapping my gums and speaking the only language I know how to speak in my shrill North American accent. But alas, I’ve been reminded that I’m not that much of a dickhead (I still sound American) and it’s ok to speak English in Holland, so chill bruh.

After 25hrs, I finally made my destination (and yes, it took me 2 weeks to write a post – jet lag and complications bitches). Flight was great! I was flying with some delicious New Zealand rugby players, wine was flowing and the woman next to me only tried to put her bum on me twice. Then things started to get dark and I remembered that I took quite a strong tranquilizer before boarded and just like that – boom, I’m knocked the fuck out – for 10 hours. I SLEPT FOR 10 STRAIGHT HOURS on an international flight. If that doesn’t break some kind of record I don’t know what will. When I finally came to I was in Abu Dhabi. I won’t bore you with details but there was a shit-ton of cheese, Arab bread and wine. I was happy.

On my second day here, my friend Tom arranged for us to have a play date. We took a train to Antwerp, Belgium where my day was filled with sites, strong beer and vinyl shopping. There was soooo many records and look, as an amateur, I wanted them ALL. Classics, new shit, obscure French Canadian country hits, local music and so much more. However, I bucked the fuck up, kept it real and for 13 Euro I think I made off with quite a steal. Los João’s Disco Samba literally made me dance like I was in carnival and I couldn’t pass a throwback to 70s soul and funk with the Memphis Millions LP (featuring Isaac Hayes’ theme from Shaft!). I took it easy on this trip as my friend has a lot of records already (such as June Lodge and Rick James), but I’m eager to get more. Stay tuned.

Tot ziens. (that’s Dutch for ‘see you later’)

After a year of procrastinating and thinking about tunes that would make sense, it’s finally done an hour and 20 mins of Love related jams covering everything from Hip Hop, Soul and Funk to New Jack, Garage and Disco and everything in between.  I’ve also thrown in a few freeloads from the mix because you know i’m nice like that.

Carnival Envy

Carnival in Rio is something that i have always wanted to do, that day will come when i am not on a shoestring budget living day to day. Some might say its pretty lame not checking it while I’m living on the same continent, But really i wanna do it right.  I’m hopefully going to cross the border later in the year and get amongst this amazing and much hyped country and culture. Brazilian Music is such a gigantic ball of twine i wouldn’t really no where to start unravelling it. Instead i am going give you my First podcast from South America which i half talked about doing before leaving Sydney. I will attempt to cover other countries throughout South and central America over the next little while so watch this space. For now this podcast is all about some of the tunes in my Brazilian crates, I kept it short because there is so much ground to cover with Brazil so hopefully i can one day do a longer legit mix on all things Brazil. Happy carnival vibes to all those fellow travelers with enough loot.  I salute and envy you. Bom dia!
