Freeload: Ghetto Palms Mix for Seen

May 07, 2009


Last week FADER contributor Eddie STATS got Berlin-based DJ Tim Turbo to run an exclusive blend for his Ghetto Palms column which introduced us to new ZZK signee Douster, Sierra Leonan singer Souri Kondi and others. Now STATS returns the flavor with a 30-minute Ghetto Palms mix for today's Tim Turbo Thursdays podcast on the German Seen reggae blog (“original foreign styles”). As Tim points out, the tracklist reads like a “golden hits” version of tracks that have been on Ghetto Palms, and this site in general, from El Guincho to Amadou & Mariam to Busy Signal chatting over Sergio Mendes carnival bashment madness and of course a whole lot of Mavado. Closest to home may be a dub-plate from FADER fav Natalie Storm on the made-in-Brooklyn Skull riddim, which just happens to be the focus of this week’s Ghetto Palms. In addition to being the perfect soundtrack to spring (rain, rain go away) it suggests a whole non-money based form of internet barteration with interesting implications for the future of our no-longer-money based economy.
