A while back we posted a video of Gnucci performing the og of Goodah but this week she released the remix which features some of the baddest mcs from around the globe; New York’s ‘Mistress of Ceremonies’ and one half of Electric Punnany Jasmine Solano, Brazil-via-Brooklyn’s Zuzuka Poderosa and London’s Lady Chann, accompanied by Swedish vocalist Nadia Nair on the chorus. Download the track for free here.
When Gnucci sent this track to us a week or so ago we raved about it on twitter. It dropped on soundcloud this week and we waited to post it (it’s been a hectic week), thankfully we did because this live performance is aces. So here is Gnucci performing on Dutch radio for a group of fans. Goodah sees Gnucci on a Lady Saw slackness rip which always gets a thumbs up from us.
7 months after our first World Carnival mix we are back with the sequel. This mix spans not only our musical influences but represents the sound of our heritage. The music that this generation of diasporas (Trinidad and Nigeria in particular) are making. So we have music from countries as diverse as Ghana, Trinidad, UK, France, Nigeria, Portugal and Germany amongst others. For us combing genres such as Soca, Azonto, House and Tropical Bass is natural and something that we have nurtured through our club night. We wanted to replicate the sounds we know are orignating from carnivals in Port of Spain, Calabar and London. We hope that you enjoy this mix, this is what we believe is our World Carnival.

Leading track “Carimbo” puts the sound of Northern Brasil on the New Orleans bootie map with an irresistible melody and bounce riddims. “Steel Kazoo” is an uptempo smasher that revisists the Trinidad drum legacy in 21st century fashion. “Coolie Fruit feat. Gnucci Banana” is another Bounce influenced track that jumps in your face. And last but not least “Yuh Mumma”, which gives the vibe of the Mexican gulf city another serious European re-examination.
Edit: now with video
ps…. great minds think alike run using a corner store as a video shoot idea….
