YAY for Bag Raiders! They've finally released their self-titled debut album and to celebrate they've kicked it back with some proper CHOONS selected for those mourning the arrival of Autumn and for those awaiting the summer time fun; the Pina Colada Podcasta is complete with Summer Breezes, Shy Guys, Brazilian Affairs and chill out drunkytown vibes in the sun. Pretty damn sexy.
Tracklist and commentary by Chris and Jack below for each track below, then go cop the mixtape in the direct download link after that.
1. Air France - 'Beach Party'
there a better kind of party than a beach party? Lovely song from a
really great summertime band. Put it on and grab a cocktail by the
2. Amadou & Mariam - 'Magossa'
"Love this album. Beautiful and exotic song. Kind of song that makes me want to go on holidays. More balaphon!"
3. Barrington Levy - 'Murderer'
"Rude boy reggae! Subject matter ain't that chilled but find me a better song to sip a cold beer to in a hammock in the sun."
4. UB40 - 'Bring Me Your Cup'
are the kind of UB40 jams I really like. "I've got the bottle, bring me
your cup, we'll drink it down till the sun comes up." Nuff said."
5. Roberto Pregadio - 'Funky Chopper (Luca Toni & Luca Del Giudice Remix)'
"By the time you read the track title summer might be over. Where's my white suit at?! Props to the two Lucas on remix duty. "
6. George Duke - 'Brazilian Love Affair'
"George Duke, what a dude! Love this song. Check the cuica in the weird second level Mario Bros. break at 3.10 - man alive!!"
7. Isley Brothers - 'Summer Breeze'
"I wish my mind was made of jasmine. One of my favourite songs ever! How good is the guitar sound too? Amazing."
8. Sergio Mendes and Brasil '66 - 'Pais Tropical'
step out of your beach shack, feel the warm sand between your toes, a
lady wearing a swimsuit and an open white shirt comes over and hands you
a pina colada, singing as she takes you to the party where the rest of
the band is playing... Life is beautiful."
9. Fania All-Stars - 'Ella Fue'
love never sounded so good.. These pianos, horns and group vocals will
have you wiggling like the worm in your mescal..."
10. Black Star - 'Brown Skin Lady'
Def and Tailb Kweli ruling things as always.. The beat sounds like a
summer afternoon and they bring the heat on the verses, especially
digging on Mos' verse where he rhymes everything with "ooh"."
11. Diana King - 'Shy Guy'
all that 90's reggae influenced pop with a good time feel. Great music
to play beach volleyball to. Oh lord have mercy mercy mercy!!!!"
Dizu Plaatjies, Lungiswa Plaatjies, Nicolas Gongxeka & The Dizu
Plaatjies Ibuyambo Ensemble - 'Giya Kasiyamore (Danse Afrika)'
the sun goes down and you step off the beach you can hear a faint
balafon being played somewhere in the distance. As you follow the sound
deep into the jungle you hear the beating of drums. You part the vines
to reveal a crazy dance party and these guys are playing all night!!"
13. Night Rider - 'Fun Time Deh Ya'
have a dancehall jam to get you through those bus rides from beach to
beach. Lucky the bus has monkey bartenders that make you drinks in
