Outernationalists Ethnomixicology

UK DJ and music producer Phil Meadly and Afro Celts founder Simon Emerson mine the world of global funk and fuse a jump up club mix of Afro, Arabic, Indian Celtic, Latin and ska rhythms. Eclectic dance and world music fuse in a euphoric and bustling mix, which begins with the Fela Kuti-like "Green Africa” by Mystic Traveler. Moving into to the Anglo-Indian global charge of "The Big Bhang,” which is followed by the sound of Hawke’s psychedelic prog rock guitar in "Now We Know (Lovesky Mix),” Ethnomixicology is an unrelenting force of big global beat. Highlights include the driving Arabic and Brazilian carnival drums of Harem’s "Orient Carnival,” the sexy gypsy dancehall of Bucovina vs Taraf de Haidouk's "Carolina” and the melodic Afro-groove of Doreen Thobekile's "Hambanam.” Meadly and Emmerson finish off the global party mix with the junglified Moody Boyz remix "FireWater” by Fun-Da-Mental and the explosive fiddle driven "Deep Channel” by Afro Celt.
