Radio LBB: Roots Volume IX



Adelphoi Music's Jonathan Watts returns, taking us on another eclectic journey of old, new, overlooked and lesser known tracks that have musical roots in Africa

Radio LBB: Roots Volume IX

Taking inspiration from this summer's heatwave, I have curated the Roots playlist with an upbeat tone to be enjoyed in the sunshine with friends and family. This playlist goes to the outer limits of Spotify's ever-growing database of 10 million tracks; part of the goal with the Roots playlist series is to showcase music that got away or was never released until recently. Black Beauty, the never-before-released masterpiece by Arthur Lee's legendary band LOVE, was the follow up album to the timeless Changes. The track Midnight Sun, originally recorded in 1973, sounds like something Hendrix could have written.

Another track worth checking is Marco Bosco - Madeira II (Mãe Terra). Up until recently, it was only available on vinyl with copies going for over £100! Now thanks to labels like Music From Memory it's available on Spotify for all to enjoy!

The playlist covers music from the last 50-60 years, and - without it sounding too disjointed and chaotic - is a seamless fusion of funk, boogie, house, hip hop, jazz, rock, reggae, samba, footwork, drum and bass and much more…
