The soundtrack to our hotels in Kathmandu & Lisbon.

This is the best 70s compilation I have heard in a very long time.

Looking forward play them in our hotels in Kathmandu & Lisbon.



70s Trilogy Part I+II+III are compiled and mixed by A Macaca whom I found coincidently last year where he and his partner Peter Power’s Alma da Terra was highlighted as the reviewer’s #1 track in 2016.

Voodoohop: Entropia Coletiva I: The award for most-beguiling compilation of the year goes to this one from the Brazilian collective voodoohop. It’s an album that ties together threads of the Brazilian avant-garde yet does so with some of the most seductive grooves around. It’s a hypnotic release that will surely appeal to fans of Dengue Dengue Dengue! and the other psych cumbia acts out there. Starting off with a dark roots raga courtesy of Urubu and J. Abramovay, we head through the desolate trippy landscapes of Ninze and Projeto Mujique, the ethno-step rhythms of Carrot Green, the characterful (as always) jumpy beats of Psilosamples before towards the end we find A Macaca & Peter Power’s glorious stoner folk “Alma da Terra”, which for me is the #1 track of 2016.

Last Night I shared 70s trilogy part I

The response I get when I share my favorite sets are usually very modest. And those who like/comment/share are always the same nerds.

When I shared A Macaca’s 1st set the response was not only bigger and faster than usual. It also reached people I dident expected. Like our friend Tina Voss in Kathmandu who obviously liked what she heard and thanked me for making her day.

So this post is for her with love from Graca in Lisbon

To the rest of you – hope you like what you hear. If you do – remember to give thumps up to A Macaca.

See you next week in Kathmandu.
