Monthly Mix 008 – simonpierre

Producer and DJ simonpierre pairs modern funk with 80s boogie grooves and disco gems from Nigeria and Brazil in this all-vinyl mix. Though he typically specializes in Middle Eastern and African sounds, he seeks to defy the “world music” label. Preferring to define music by its style versus its origin, simonpierre makes a point never to forget the history behind a record. Check him out on Soundcloud here:
