BEATS & CULTURE: Snake Pit (Stove Mix)(JUNGLE FIRE) b/w Lokums & Matches (PALOV & A. ANGELIDES)(Vinyl 7″)

The second of two dope sevens from the new collaboration between the Beats & Culture Youtube channel and Melting Records is this – a 45 featuring L.A. outfit Jungle Fire on the one side and Athenian producer Palov and his guitar-toting homie A.Angelides on the flip. The former provides the spaghetti Western-tinged rootsy dub of Snake Pit (The Stove Mix) an appropriately hypnotic and

PALOV meets A ANGELIDES: He Hecho Mucho Por Ti (2017)

PALOV meets A ANGELIDES: He Hecho Mucho Por TiHe Hecho Mucho Por Ti is the Spanish title of the new ‘Palov meets A Angelides’ mini-album – or as it runs in English, “I’ve Done Plenty Of Things For You,” almost as if in answer to the question, ‘What have the Greeks ever done for us?’ And if that sounds a bit like a Monty Python sketch, consider the absurdity of its having been Greeks who’ve been behind a significant amount of

VARIOUS: Carnibal Records 014 (2016)

Carnibal 014 Various PalovAs the planet suddenly feels less safe than it has done since 9/11 and the ignorant, with tedious predictability, have been manipulated by rich and powerful bullshitters into scapegoating anyone ‘foreign’ or unlucky enough to be on benefits instead of, say, the ever so slightly more cuplable rich and powerful bullshitters, it may well be that you feel the need for something a bit cheery in

VARIOUS: Carnibal Records 008 (2013)

Carnibal Records have, within seven releases, established a reputation for top quality latin breaks with the occasional bit of something else thrown in for good measure. Carnibal 008 eschews the sound of South America however, and takes in as many continents in a single release as the plot of World War Z. First Panama Cardoon smuggles his mellow vibe from Europe to Asia Minor in Bosporus

VARIOUS: Carnibal Records 007 (2013)

Latin breakbeat freaks Carnibal Records are back with their seventh release and in the way of such things it is entitled Carnibal Records 007. Which, in the way of such things of course, immediately makes me think of James Bond causing havoc at some sort of fiesta. Thus it is that Palov & Panama Cardoon and Senor Griff all prove themselves capable agents in the field with Vamos

PALOV meets ANG ANGELIDES: Carnibal Records 006 (2012)

It’s the Carnibal Records train’s sixth visit to town in 2012 and this time the Greek label focuses on producer Palov and his guitarist buddy Ang Angelides. Four tracks deep, it ends with the mellow, rural-sounding skank of Waste Of Time but up until that point we’re very much in swing breaks territory – all 20s and 30s wah-wah trumpets and organic-sounding drums. Why – it’s practically

VARIOUS: Carnibal Records 005 (2012)

Rating: ★★★★★
Moving at breakneck speed with their release schedule, Greek label Carnibal Records drop volume 5 today and it’s the best one in a while. Lest anyone should accuse them of being a one-trick pony, this time they leap the hedges of the Latin breaks enclosure in several different directions at once. Doctor Stereo canters along the road

VARIOUS: Carnibal Records 004 (2012)

The Carnibal cabal step up their activity here delivering Vol. 4 of their latin breaks series (which actually came out at the end of May) before the dust has even settled in the wake of mid-May’s Vol. 3. Time was when I would receive PR for a release a couple of months before it was due to generate ‘buzz.’ Then some marketing bell-end somewhere must’ve realised that ‘buzz’ has a

VARIOUS: Carnibal Records 003 (2012)

The latin breaks party continues apace with Hammond Classics, Palov, Mr Bird and, of course, Panama Cardoon. A subtler affair than it’s predecessors, and largely mid-tempo there’s still plenty of upright bass, latin piano and shuffling breakbeat rhythms to swing those hips to which the ladies love – as all concerned are well aware. Caribe opts for a sweaty cumbia groove

VARIOUS: Carnibal Records 002 (2012)

The carnival continues as the Carnibal Records 002 float appears on the horizon. This time around things are ever so slightly more chilled – you know – it’s still a party but they’ve had a rum or two. Thus Palov and Panama Cardoon, Kill Emil and Monetrik all have a gentle shimmy through their latin music collections in a way that calls gently to the hips – which, as you know, never lie. However, it’s Daytoner who showboats around like the carnival
