This mix is 100% inspired by a 3 week residency in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Being able to be in the vibes of the cradle of civilization is like none other in the world. For those of you who don’t know, Addis Ababa is home to the African Union which makes it feel like a giant melting pot with all kinds of Pan-African sounds from across the continent.
This is a collection of some of TIGER’s personal favorite bops from the motherland (and a few UK jams as well) and snippet from one of the best Nollywood movies -. Hope you enjoy and don’t forget to follow ya boy on Instagram: @tigerthedj

The Busy Twist- London Luanda Remix Series
Praised by the BBC, and making waves all over the world-music scene. Get to know why
If you know about music, and if you are reading this page it means you absolutely know A LOT, (because Marginal-Original is the place in where you will find the hidden jewels) then you know Analog Africa has been the source of the realest for ages, and thankfully for us, they have decided to license some of their amazing catalog to create this LONDON-LUANDA series.
From St Lucia to Jamaica to Ghana to Colombia, London based collective The Busy Twist has travelled the globe to create their dance floor killing productions.
The London Luanda Remix Series is the result of digging into 1970’s popular music in Angola. Acclaimed by BBC radio host Annie Mac, and supported by the likes of Jillionaire, Buraka Som Sistema or Toddla T, some of these remixes are already being played throughout clubs and parties all over the world, but were never officially released.
Courtesy of Analog Africa, all original tracks were taken from the “Angola Soundtrack” compilation series. Includes 2 that have never been aired and one is a vinyl exclusive.
The release of these classic tribal reworks was eventually made possible thanks to the collective recent trips to Colombia, where he worked alongside Systema Solar, Ghetto Kumbé, Nidia Gongora and Palenque Records, for an impressive variety of original productions, collaborations and remixes.
In alliance with Colombia-based label Galletas Calientes Records, one of these fruitful encounters, the London Luanda Remix Series was finally materialized.
Very Be Careful- Daisy’s Beauty Salon
A purist Jewel in almost every level coming from the most fake city
The extension of irony doesn’t even fit to describe what we are about to tell you.
Coming from Los Angeles, perhaps the “most hyped/fake/show business” city in the entire world, we find the most pure original Vallenato band from the globe. Closer to 2020 it is refreshing to hear a band with original tracks that have this distinctive sound.
With popular music these days often autotuned and using computer beats, Very Be Careful has been able to express their talent since 1997 through the use of their unique instruments. The band consists of the pure old school elements: an accordion, bass, cowbell, the guacharaca (wooden bell) and Caja Vallenata (drums).
Not even in Valledupar they so this style any longer.
Their most recent album is Daisy’s Beauty Salon, which is a complete rendition to early corraleros del majagual on songs like El Soldado
But of course more references like alejo duran, andres landero, or alfredo gutierrez.
But VBC is not a CD/Vinyl thing, it is a 100000% live experience. where band interacts with the crowd by talking to the audience and cracking jokes after every song they play, which makes the crowd eager to hear more.
This is just another level. Support this one on Bandcamp or if you prefer their iconic “Remeber me from the party?” album which is equally timeless
La Bruja de Texcoco- De Brujas Peteneras Y Chachalacas
One of the hidden jewels in Mexican music goes by the name BRUJA
Dressed in Make up, sweat and popular Mexican symbols extracted from Catholicism comes before us La Bruja de Texcoco, sweat and popular Mexican symbols extracted from Catholicism comes before us La Bruja de Texcoco. BRUJA, as she likes to be called, was born, so to speak, twice: The first one more than 30 years ago when she was born by her mother and the second one seven years ago in the middle of a party in Texcoco where she was hired to play music.
Upon arriving at the party a shaman approached her and said: “I was waiting for you, you are one of my witches”.
The statement of the healer disconcerted her but she took the event as a hazardous event and continued with her work.
However, the course of things changed when one of the people attending the party began to suffer what seemed like a seizure.”A girl began to convulse, then the chaman asked for holy water and a joint. Then the chaman/healer told me: ‘You have to do something, for that you came’.
And I like that: Do not mom, I do not know anything about this! I did not know what to do, and what occurred to me was to play; as I also work singing in masses, because I started to play a catholic song with the violin and my compas musicians started to accompany me and started to sing. According to the shaman, that healed the girl.
“Yo soy la bruja de Texcoco y no eres bienvenido aquí”, I am Texcoco Witch and you ain’t welcome here she shouted while singing ..and just like that the legend/artist was born.
Months later her AMAZING debut EP is right here.. .
Opening huapango “Té de Malvón” features cheerful, recuperative violins accompanying a poem written by Nahuatl poet Mardonio Carballo, and an ode to a geranium tea that saved La Bruja’s voice from a post-breakup muteness. On “Laabe Muxhe,” every instrument—viola, violin, violoncello, and harp—is played by La Bruja. The song is based on a son istmeño, a music genre originating from the Isthmus of Tehuantepec region, by the composer Santiago Bernal, and sung in the indigenous Zapotec language. It’s sung from the perspective of a beautiful muxhe who shares secrets and dances on forgotten nights—it seems to be a song made for La Bruja.
“Suite Aquelarre” is built on chamber music, flutes, and a rather baroque décima, a 10-verse form popular in traditional Mexican music, here used to tell of growing certainties; “And if I die, bury me in a women’s dress.” De Brujas Peteneras y Chachalacas closes on the sad, freeform jazz horn of “Nahual Papalotl” and its Babylon outerlude of dialogue, which La Bruja refers to as her manifesto. Its snippets are meant to be felt: “The end of the party”; “I was able to change the wind”; “This is why you’re here”; “Everything that happened before, during, and after.”
