Celestial Motherships Vol.1

A new mix in the clouds!

Dancing music made in 1970’s & 80’s, West-Africa – Disco, Highlife, Soul, Funk, Soukous from Nigeria, Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso and Benin. Some latest favourites out of my record box:



Afrofunk Special


At the next Afrofunk Special I will lay together with Bestmate? some very danceable music from Africa and abroad. Currently I´m preparing a slide show based on sleeve snippets from my collection – it will be shown during the night.

The main act “Onom Agemo And The Disco Jumpers” will celebrate the release of their first LP “Cranes And Carpets” on agogo records. The musicians of this young, Berlin based band are also playing in better known projects as Woima Collective or Mop Mop.
Their music is a unique conjunction of jazz, african music, hypnotic minimalism and fuzzy grooves – get an impression here.

Beautiful sleeve also ….. you are welcome!



Bela Patrutzi for Tropical Timewarp

Please enjoy this highlife mix I recently made for Tropical Timewarp.
At 13 December we will celebrate the first birthday of this Berlin based collective, who tries to warm up this cold city with good music. At the Klunkerkranich, which is based on a (frozen) top parking level of a shopping center in Neuköln, we want to fuse you with ONOM AGEMO & THE DISCO JUMPERS (live), Bestmate?, The Soulvendor and myself.
