The Dekmantel Selectors podcast series became tradition. Each year, we ask six artists from the line-up to deliver a mix in anticipation of the new edition.
Selectors Podcast 22 - Sacha Mambo
Sacha Mambo stays busy heading up the Macadam Mambo label (perhaps best known for their nice run of edits) and occasionally producing under the alias MZKBX. The Lyon resident has also put in plenty of time as DJ as well, having served as the resident of his hometown club Le Sucre for a handful of years where he developed his taste for piecing together disparate sounds sources, often utilizing bits of cosmic Afro, dub, new beat, early rave, post-punk, and all sorts of weird electronics in the course of his infectiously oddball sets.
That being said, we're happy to have Lyon's Sacha Mambo continuing our globe-traversing Selectors podcast series, bringing an alt history of French music to your door. Minimalist wave, proto-electronic gurgles and a typically laissez-faire attitude abound. Bon voyage! 🇫🇷
Selectors Podcast 21 - Palo Santo & Coco Maria
Respected diggers in their own right, when Palo Santo and Coco Maria combine forces, what results is an essential lesson in the spectrum of sounds that originate from countries closer to the equator. Specializing in Brazilian, South-, Central-American, and Caribbean wax, the pair are supremely skilled in weaving together bright and inviting slices of bossa nova, samba, cumbia, and all sorts of rarities from sunnier, far-off places.
Palo Santo & Coco Maria on their mix: "We’ve found these songs on recent trips to Mexico and Brazil, and we like to share this musical journey with you all at Dekmantel Selectors in Tisno."
