We are lucky to have an EXCLUSIVE MIX from the godfather of all that is Cosmic, BEPPE LODA! Beppe recorded this PSYCHEDELIC SOUL mix on cassette in 1988 and it’s been lost to time, until now.
Italian DJ Beppe Loda, pioneer of DJ culture and resident at Typhoon (near Brecia) from 1980 to 1987, has been searching for sounds off the beaten path since his first gig in 1973. Playing to as many as 7,000 people a night, producing in excess of 200 mix tapes and pioneering the “Italo Synth” sound with his MC1 project (just reissued on Synthonic), he has just about done it all. His “Afro” style (also called “Cosmic” or “Cosmic Afro”) is as disorienting, funky and inspiring now as it was then. - Tropical Computer System
