DJ: DJ Budin
MIXTAPE: Rum & Bananas Tropical Vintage Music
Last week we rewinded the clock a couple of decades to bring you some ’80s rock en español classics and it was great; we could almost see a twenty-something-year-old Cerati playing at some small, intimate venue for his friends and just a few more. We like time traveling through music so much that this week we’re taking you way back, Back-To-The-Future-style, to an era even before Cerati’s parents first met. Yes, we’re going to the ’50s!
The pilot for this time-paradox-inducing voyage is none other than Spain’s renown vinyl archeologist DJ Budin. All the way from Pamplona, this indefatigable record collector takes us on an all-analog exploration through some obscure, tropical dance music–both in English and en español–the kind your grandparents used to dance to back in their day. While some of you might be able to recognize a track or two, I can definitely guarantee Budin’s selection is full of incunables that had never even been released in digital form. No fancy effects or showing off of mixing techniques. The mix is pretty much straight-forward and it’s pure, gritty, analog delight. Keep vinyl alive!
