Here’s a bit of shameless self promotion. I’ve been sitting on this little edit I did of Kabbala’s Afro disco classic “Ashewo Ara” for a minute. Figured it was time to share. Can’t wait to test this one at Sol Power this weekend, along with a few other fresh Sol Power edits we’ve been cooking up.
Tonight DJ Stylus, Meistro, and Deep Sang continue their bi-monthly residency as the Sol Power All Stars at the legendary Eighteenth Street Lounge. Get ready for another incredible night of the sounds of the African diaspora: samba, salsa, afrobeat, cumbia, merengue, afro-latin deep house and more.
