MIXTAPE: Boof, Eat My Goal! The Liquid Futebol Master Mix, Vol. 7
Sometimes we forget about it, but soccer is a global phenomenon, it’s not just us, Latinos, who enjoy it. So it makes perfect sense that people who speak languages other and Spanish and Portuguese also make songs about this sport.
DJ Monk-One of Names You Can Trust (the Brooklyn-based boutique record label that released Latino artists such as La Mecánica Popular, Meridian Brothers, Frente Cumbiero, Doctor Stereo, and more) is an expert of sorts in international music and an avid rare vinyl collector so, with the excuse of the World Cup, he compiled and put together this mixtape full of fútbol-themed songs you never heard of. There’s some Spanish and some Portuguese hiding in there–of course–but also plenty of English, French, German, and other languages I can’t even pretend to distinguish, all of them singing about the same topic, the same global obsession.
