Thelonious Funk Sessions #284 (Next Gen Exclusive Mix Rose Bonica)

     Finally a Thelonious Funk Sessions for you to enjoy. We kick off the show with music from Prayer on Black Acre. Think Burial doing Drum & Bass to give you an idea of this tune. Moodymann adds some Detroit cosmic sleaze to Nightmares on Wax on Warp records. More big tunes from Mr. Fingers,  Mateis e. aqir, Hugo LX & STL. New music from Miruga, Nicky Soft Touch, E Davd and Vril. More music from the LP of Qnete on 777 recordings. Manmade DeeJay returns followed by a forthcoming collaboration between Earth Trax & Newborn Jr. More killer cuts from Juju & Jordash, Eats Everything and DJ Spider. Nina Kraviz does an filthy techno take on Franz Ferdinand latest EP and a forthcoming P Leone remix of Erta Ale on Twirl to round off the 1st part of the show.
     For the second part of the show we continue with the latest installment of the Next Gen Series by South African producer Rose Bonica. The scene in the “SA” has been a huge support of electronic music. Back in the days artists like Arthur and TKZee made Kwaito which paved the way for house music today. There was a period when the rest of the world appreciated the music of artists such a Black Coffee, Culoe De Song & Jazzuelle (more recently). The past few years the rest of the world (me included) wondered if various sounds can come out of this rich scene.  One morning last month I received a promo that really knocked the sleep out of my eyes. The answer was an emphatic ‘hell fucking yes fool’.  Rose Bonica is a force to be reckoned with having the experimental maniacal aggressiveness of some early Ellen Allien with a funky groove of Henrik Schwarz but that is just scratching the surface.
     So for her installment she is showcasing the music from her Wet Dreams imprint featuring tunes from the latest EP that made me contact her. There is also music from Big Space & legendary French singer Edith Piaf. Her EP Don’t Let It Go To Your Head is out now on Wet Dreams Recordings. Seek it. After the mix I played more from Rose Bonica followed by Echologist, Marcelus and Chi Thanh to round off the show. Once again big thanks to Natalie for getting this mix out for us.
Enjoy The Music,
